Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  February 2014

Membership  Committee

Randy Lusk, Membership Chair

Hello again everyone. I hope everyone’s holidays went well and you got to spend time with friends and family. The New Year is upon us. It’s 2014 and it’s hard to believe, where does the time go? This winter’s weather has been crazy; multiple inches of snow and record colds. I do need to say thanks to Mother Nature for my new work out regiment J I know you will be disappointed if I don’t mention some type of sports announcement so here it goes, we have an awesome Hockey Team who won the Stanley Cup in 2013 and looking good to repeat in 2014. We also now have a good QB for a fair number of years and let’s just hope some off season pickups for our beloved baseball teams will happen soon.

Membership Numbers:

When we talk about goals we have 2 set goals. We have the year goal, which is a hard number and than a retention goal percent for each month. Retention goal is what percent of members we kept for an individual month from last year to this year; our retention goal for each month is 88%. The goal for 2013 was to have 2064 members by Dec 31, 2013 which is a 1% growth. We ended at 2132 with is a growth of 68 members, which is outstanding. If you know someone who didn’t renew, please discuss with them the value of membership and why you continue to be a member. We will try to have a 1% growth again for 2014. This means by the end of 2014 we need to have 2153, I know we can do it this year and I am counting on all of you to help us achieve this goal. Our overall retention rate for 2013 was 91%, nice work everyone.

Membership Appreciation:

For 2014 we will continue doing membership appreciation by allowing free webinars to members as a way to say thanks for being a member, this will be for the live ones AND the recorded webinars. I just want to report that this is going over very well and many members have capitalized on this promotion. So once again, I want to thank all of you for your continued support of being a member and all that you do for this organization.

2013 Membership Challenge

There was a contest in 2013 or a "Challenge” that was put out to all the sections in AWWA. This contest was retention based and new members based. We had two goals, the first goal was to retail 116 of the new members we signed in 2012, we are currently at 85 which is short (31). The second goal was to have 2064 members by the end of the year; we are at 2132 which is a gain of 68 new members which is a great accomplishment. These numbers are not final but this is the latest update I have received from AWWA Denver. ISAWWA has been the 7th largest section for the past number of years. I am proud to let you know we are currently the 6th largest section. Way to go everyone!!

Thought I would do a breakdown on which sections are actually winning this challenge, there are not many. These 4 have reached both goals ATM. Not one of these sections had larger goals than us, just saying J

1. Minnesota Section

2. New Jersey Section

3. Quebec Section

4. Wisconsin Section

Membership Committee:

If you are a member and looking for ways to get involved with ISAWWA please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. We have many committees you could participate in. If you’re outgoing and want to get involved with membership, please give me a call, I am always looking for people to help promote membership and work our booth at the conferences and use their experiences on why they continue to be a member of ISAWWA. We have 8 different conferences we will be attending this year; and, if you have some free time and want to contribute, we would be most appreciative of some of your time. Don’t forget, Watercon in Springfield is March 17-20, 2014. Stop by the booth and see what’s new for 2014.

Introduce a friend or colleague to AWWA today….

You joined AWWA for many great reasons; now spread those reasons on and help to keep our Section growing strong. Talk up the reasons you joined and we will see new members each month. This Section needs everyone to be involved in recruiting, that’s what will keep ISAWWA strong.
