Membership Update: Adding an Institutional Membership Option
Wed, Jun 20, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
At the Annual Business Meeting during the EASFAA Conference in New York on May 8, 2018 EASFAA Council announced its decision to implement the option of either an individual or an institutional membership. Join EASFAA President, Sam Veeder, for this webinar which will review the implementation and details of this initiative.
Beginning with the 2019-20 membership year, including registration for the 2019 conference in Portland, Maine, EASFAA will offer the option of either an individual or institutional membership. Similar to the NASFAA approach, one point of contact at the institution will be responsible for maintaining a roster of staff under the institutional membership enrollment. However, unlike NASFAA, all eligible EAFAA members will maintain their individual voting rights even under institutional membership.
To implement this change will require an amendment to the By-laws that is passed by a two-thirds majority vote of the membership. Per the By-laws, the amendment was proposed in writing to the Secretary of the Regional Council and distributed to the membership via email on May 25, 2018. The membership has 30 days to review the proposed change and then an electronic ballot will be sent allowing you to vote on the proposal.
