Director, College Membership Candidate
University of Michigan Engineering
Ann Arbor, MI
Your current position:
Director | University of Michigan Engineering
Describe your past experiences that will help you be successful in this role:
I have been a member of MWACE since 2006, attending my first MWACE conference in 2005. At the annual conference in 2006, I joined the membership committee. After a few years on the committee, I became Vice Chair for the committee, followed by Chair of the Committee the following year. I have a good understanding of the membership base and what methods have/have not worked in terms of membership retention and growth. In addition, I have been on the Executive Board for two, two-year terms with extensive knowledge of the organization.
Brief paragraph on why you would be the ideal candidate for this role:
MWACE has always been an exceptional organization where I have grown professionally and because of that, I want to give back in any way I can to the organization. Serving as Director of Membership is a sweet spot for me as I spent many years on the Membership Committee. Growing the organization is essential to the continued health of the organization, professional development of our members and networking opportunities between Career Services and Employers. By serving in this role, I feel like I can make the biggest impact in this area.
What goals do you hope to accomplish during your term:
For the 2015-2017 Director of Membership term, I would like to comb out past surveys to evaluate member's perception of the organization as well as their greatest benefits received by the organization so we can work on ways to focus on our strengths and grow our membership.
