New Member Committee Report, Spring 2012

Deborah Herrington (

The New Member committee (NMC) is focused on welcoming new members to the division and looking for new ways to help meet the needs of our new members. We are excited to welcome Nichole DePaul to the NMC. As a relatively new member of the Division herself, we are sure that Nichole can provide us some valuable insight into the needs of our new members.

As in the past, in our continued efforts to provide venues for welcoming new members, NMC members attending the spring meeting in San Diego have again committed to be on hand at the Sunday evening social/reception to greet and welcome new members. If you are going to be at the ACS meeting this spring make sure you stop by, get some food, and say hi. Additionally, this summer during the BCCE at Penn State we will be holding our 3rd New Members Welcome Lunch. This is a great opportunity for you to come and meet some new people, let us know what your needs are as new members and meet some more experienced DivCHED members to learn more about how you can get involved in the Division and get the most out of your membership.

Let us know what we can do to help serve you better. There are a number of venues available, both face-to-face and virtual, and we would love to hear from you!
