The Membership Committee recruits and supports new and renewing members. Committee members identify events and/or organizations throughout the state in order to distribute membership literature. The committee is responsible for writing and updating membership literature, including the annual membership drive letter, and the membership brochure.

Do you know of a conference, event, or workshop to spread the word about SOA?  The Membership Committee has everything needed to create an SOA promotional table.  Items include tablecloth, signage, brochures, and pencils.  Please contact Ron Davidson to discuss tabling.
