In the spring of 2019, a CES National Capital membership scan was conducted for the NCC Board. It launched a new initiative focusing on Chapter membership and partnership development. The NCC Board of Directors, and many other members have been aware of the need to ensure that the Chapter remains vital, attracting and retaining new members and engaging in productive partnerships with related organizations. Conducting the scan was an effort in better understanding “who we are”, “what we expect” and “how we connect”. The scan provided a detailed profile, depicting “where we are now” as a chapter.
Relying on secondary data, the scan examined the demographic and professional characteristics of the CES-NCC membership, and member expectations regarding Chapter functions and services. The scan also explored, via a social network analysis, patterns in members’ attendance at CES-NCC events and CES National Conferences. The Chapter resembles a loose coalition of individual interests, but one that has distinct sub-communities with shared membership characteristics.
This session will present highlights of the findings of the membership scan with the aim of generating a discussion as to what the findings mean for the National Capital Chapter and how they may point to avenues for improvement.
