Description: The NBDPN would not exist without its members! The Membership and Elections Committee develops strategies and programs to aid in the recruitment of new members, retain current members, and promote active involvement in the NBDPN. We work in partnership with other committees to identify all of the benefits members can enjoy through their network membership. Specifically, the committee processes applications for NBDPN membership, oversees renewals, and tracks membership. We conduct surveys of members to better understand the needs, opinions and composition of the membership. Additionally, the committee develops procedures for officer nominations, prepares a slate of candidates, oversees elections, and maintains bylaws. If you have an interest in being at the heart of the Network and keeping the beat going, we encourage you to join the Membership and Elections Committee.
