As part of the 2015-2016 CARE pilot program, the Partnership Team, a task force consisting of ATD staff, National Advisors for Chapters, and leaders from diverse chapters of different sizes, geographies, and joint membership achievement levels, established a new rewards program to recognize the top three chapters in each size category for the highest percentage of joint membership for the year. With a joint membership of 57%, the ATD RMC chapter was awarded second place in our size category!
Why did the Chapter win?
First we achieved CARE for 2016. Second, we submitted a Sharing Our Success (SOS) best practice for Finding a VP Finance/Treasurer. The Chapter Recognition Committee was impressed with this submission because Chapters are always looking for way to reduce costs and increase membership. This submission is definitely a best practice.
