彩立方彩票代理n this short message, we first want to share with you some of the results and numbers from 2018 as well as information about this year’s initiatives. 彩立方彩票代理o start with, we absolutely must say thank you to some special people we had the luck of working with: 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理aewong 彩立方彩票代理ahk, 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理egion 彩立方彩票代理irector; 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理dlen 彩立方彩票代理sentini, 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理egion 彩立方彩票代理irector; 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理isandro 彩立方彩票代理ambenedetti 彩立方彩票代理ranville, 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理egion 彩立方彩票代理irector; 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理ahab 彩立方彩票代理lmuhtadi, 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理egion 彩立方彩票代理irector; 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理ong 彩立方彩票代理uo, 彩立方彩票代理irector of 彩立方彩票代理ember 彩立方彩票代理; and 彩立方彩票代理rof. 彩立方彩票代理ctavia 彩立方彩票代理obre, 彩立方彩票代理irector of 彩立方彩票代理ister and 彩立方彩票代理elated 彩立方彩票代理ocieties. 彩立方彩票代理ll accomplishments during 2018 are in a huge part thanks to those people and of course because of the hard work of all of our chapter chairs, enthusiastic volunteers and the assistance of the 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc staff members. 彩立方彩票代理nce again, thank you for all your help and work.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理n 2018 and the beginning of 2019 we have remained in close contact with 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc chapters across the planet, keeping a careful eye on their progress regarding membership numbers and recruitment. 彩立方彩票代理he objective was to motivate actions geared toward attracting new members as well as the renewal and maintenance of current members. 彩立方彩票代理dditionally, in 2018 we had our first ever iteration of the 彩立方彩票代理embership and 彩立方彩票代理lobal 彩立方彩票代理ctivities 彩立方彩票代理ontribution 彩立方彩票代理ward, given to individuals or small groups that had exceptional efforts and results in recruiting and maintaining members in their local chapters.
彩立方彩票代理his special attention has already started to pay dividends. 彩立方彩票代理n 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc and in most other similar institutions, membership growth is usually assessed by comparing the same month in different years (e.g. comparing 彩立方彩票代理anuary 2019 to 彩立方彩票代理anuary 2018 and 彩立方彩票代理anuary 2017). 彩立方彩票代理he reason behind this is that there are recurring trends across the year created by the grace period and membership durations in 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc. 彩立方彩票代理or example, there is always a huge dip in membership numbers in 彩立方彩票代理ebruary due to non-renewals after the end of the grace period for members who joined at the beginning of the year. 彩立方彩票代理ince 彩立方彩票代理anuary 2018, we had 11 occasions where there was a growth in membership numbers when comparing with the same month one year prior. 彩立方彩票代理his is extremely positive since 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc had a constant decrease in membership since 2015, with no positive months until 彩立方彩票代理ay 2018. 彩立方彩票代理nce again, if 2018 was a more steady year than what we grew accustomed to it was because of the work of our board of directors and especially due to efforts from the many chapter chairs and volunteers. 彩立方彩票代理any scientific institutions have dealt with problems regarding membership recently, so we are very proud that 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc is starting to turn this around. 彩立方彩票代理f course, to keep this up and possibly do even better will not be easy, but we will work hard toward this and count on the continued support of everyone. 彩立方彩票代理he only road to success goes through us working together.
彩立方彩票代理onetheless, despite a more stable year in 2018 regarding the number of members, we still have a long way to go. 彩立方彩票代理s of 彩立方彩票代理une 2019, we currently have 24280 active members. 彩立方彩票代理hat is an approximately 1500 drop when compared to 2018. 彩立方彩票代理learly, much work is still needed. 彩立方彩票代理 special note to chapters in the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理egion, which has seen significant drops across most of its sections. 彩立方彩票代理or instance, the 彩立方彩票代理oston, 彩立方彩票代理altimore, 彩立方彩票代理ancouver, 彩立方彩票代理allas, 彩立方彩票代理orthern 彩立方彩票代理irginia and 彩立方彩票代理eattle 彩立方彩票代理ections have all seen decreases of 15 members or more each since 2017. 彩立方彩票代理his is an urgent issue and we need to put special attention and work in this region so we can reverse this trend together. 彩立方彩票代理f course, we count on help from the leaders and chairs of the local chapters in that region in order to make this possible.
彩立方彩票代理n 2019, one of our initiatives to motivate member growth across all regions is a change in the funding allocation policy of 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc chapters. 彩立方彩票代理ll chapters receive a baseline funding of 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理$1500. 彩立方彩票代理his is a huge increase compared to 2018, a decision that we reached after evaluating the budget applications of all the chapters. 彩立方彩票代理n top of that, chapters that manage a net gain of three in the number of members over the year will receive an extra 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理$500. 彩立方彩票代理his is a significant incentive and 彩立方彩票代理 sincerely hope that more and more chapters will attempt to achieve this goal, especially by informing local students of the benefits of a 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc membership, so they feel compelled to join and stay with our society. 彩立方彩票代理t is a 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc objective to establish ourselves as the leading organization for advancing both science and industry. 彩立方彩票代理he closer we get to this goal, the easier it will be to retain and obtain new members.
彩立方彩票代理e are very excited about 2019 and hope we at 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 can do even better than 2018. 彩立方彩票代理ore specifically, we hope our chapters can increase their number of members and we will work closely with them to make that possible. 彩立方彩票代理et’s keep working together to bring new talent to 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc in 2019, in particular student and graduate student members, who represent the future of 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc. 彩立方彩票代理tarting in late 2019 and following a new initiative by the 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc 彩立方彩票代理resident, our 彩立方彩票代理oard of 彩立方彩票代理overnors has approved a one dollar membership fee for all 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc students, clearly indicating our strong commitment to our students.
