The EWCA Executive Board recently met on March 20. The phone conference call linked alumni board members in Virginia, Atlanta, Hawaii, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Mumbai. Discussion focused on progress in implementing the EWCA Strategic Plan (general consensus was we are making pretty good progress) and how to activate chapters.
One suggestion that drew considerable discussion was whether to downgrade non-active chapters to liaison status. Several members noted that chapters are led by volunteers and we have to be careful about penalizing them for non performance. After all, the chapter leaders are not getting paid for their services. Do you have any suggestions on how we can activate our chapters?
