Membership 101 webcast available online


Any members interested in the membership process at their chapter or branch can get to the webcast through the Chapter Leader Resources segment of the APWA website (www.apwa.net).
 
All things membership-related are covered in this webcast. This is an excellent opportunity for chapter and branch membership chairs to learn the basics of recruiting new members and for the retention of existing members. The available tools to help in the membership effort are reviewed and various membership reports – and how to use them – are discussed in length.
