As part of a new initiative to welcome new members to NORDP and promote networking and collaboration among new and old NORDP members, the Membership Committee is setting up a process whereby a regional representative will contact new members shortly after they join to welcome them to NORDP, answer any of their questions about the organization, and encourage them to attend the annual conference. Representatives can also encourage new members to fill out a full website profile and familiarize them with the available website resources (job notices, lists of program evaluators/consultants, NORDP numbers survey). These representatives will act as ambassadors at the NORDP annual meeting to help new members meet others and connect with the organization more broadly. As such, NORDP is asking for volunteers for four of the remaining open regions (see below). Please Ann McGuigan, Committee Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving as a regional representative or if you have questions about this initiative.. And if you are in a region that currently has a Regional Liaison and would like to assist in these activities, please contact the Regional Liaison for your region: they will definitely welcome your help!
