The Academy of Nutrition Dietetics (AND) recently held a webinar entitled “Membership Recruitment, Retention and Engagement” to review resources available to affiliates (think IAND and your local district) on that topic. An affiliate is any smaller branch of AND including our IAND chapter and the local districts.
AND is well aware that attracting and keeping members is every organization’s challenge. Thus they develop new and targeted recruitment/ retention materials on a regular basis that they intend for those of us on the grassroots level to use. A full listing of available resources can be found at http://www.eatrightpro.org/resource/leadership/leadership-development/recruitment-and-retention-resources/recruitment-and-retention. A screenshot of the resource page is also shown below.
We as your IAND Membership Chairs felt it would be worthwhile to highlight just a few of these resources as they may be particularly useful to district leaders and members:
If you are a district leader struggling to build your base or to engage your existing members, we highly recommend taking a few minutes to check out these helpful materials. If there are other resources you are looking for but cannot locate, please let us know. We would be happy to help.
