Engagement Committee

Engagement Committee

The overall purpose of the Engagement Committee is to introduce new members to the extraordinary opportunities associated with belonging to a global network of female leaders. Committee members will provide welcome, onboarding, orientation and support for new members, and identify diverse membership needs, including membership engagement, benefits and services. Responsibilities include sending welcome emails and/or placing calls to new members, and seeking out inactive members to re-involve them.
