--How to identify and retain new members --Find a better way to let what we do at C.A.R. flow to the Associations and our members --Enhance/improve C.A.R. director training --Enhance member value as a whole --Selection of Regional and Committee Positions
Possible Discussion Questions: How does a multi-association region select its RC,Nominating Rep, RRep’s and the committees that each director serves on? How can it be improved? How does a single association region select its RC, Nominating Rep, RRep’s and the committees that each director serves on? How can it be improved? How do you keep talented leadership from small associations “in play”, in a multi-association region, while still encouraging “new blood”? Should the Regional Chairs suggest that a member must have a picture postedto their profile on CAR.ORG before they can be appointed to a leadership position? Would an Excel matrix system for the RC’s use, if consistent with CAR’s information system, be a helpful tool in the committee assignment process? Should an e-mail link be placed on the committee assignment list to enhance communication between committee members?
