Member engagement committee sees success at conference

The membership engagement committee tried something new at the fall conference. We handed out five tickets to new members asking them to offer one of their tickets to an existing member that engaged them in a conversation. This allowed the new and existing member to both have a chance at a prize drawing.

We received good feedback from this idea. We had 15 new members put tickets in for the drawing, this means that 75 existing members helped engage our new members and make them feel welcome. It can be hard to be the “new guy” so we hope that this process helped ease that feeling and encourage more interaction at conferences.

Attending conferences is a good way to network with others within your industry. Finding out what methods others use in similar situations, learning about new technology or career opportunities are all things that networking can provide. Let’s all make it a goal to reach out to new members and help them get acquainted and experience the value of AWWA membership.
