Virtual events: Every 48 Hours Until Early April
In addition to the social distancing tool kit distributed to network leaders yesterday, Women’s Council now has a virtual event scheduled every 48 hours for the next 2 weeks! The virtual events can be found under the national events tab, and include a variety of delivery methods including Zoom, WebEx, and Facebook Live. Some are virtual happy hours and others include timely topics such as coronavirus and crisis management. Women’s Council is here for network leaders. What can you do as a network leader? Your membership looks to you, local and state, as the first point of contact. Feel free to post these events on your microsite and market them as a local or state benefit. Do you or your members have a topic to cover? Fill out this form and we’ll get it added to the calendar. Thank you!
Renewals Update: Semi-final Notices Being Sent to Unpaid Members Now
4th dues renewal notice sent March 17th and March 18th. The fourth round of invoices have been sent to all unpaid members on March 17th and March 18th. We are approaching the end of renewals season so it is important to advise your members of this semi-final renewal notice. All unpaid members will receive a customized link with a proforma invoice that requires the member to enter the username* and password. Note, if a member wishes to receive their customized link or if the message is in their spam folder, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: Dues Invoice Request), and we can re-send the customized link.
*The username is the email address on file. The member may be required to set up a new password. Dues renewals must be done from a desktop and not a mobile device.
As a reminder:
‘Not Yet Renewed’ reports are live and fully operational and work in real-time.
We have developed customized templated emails so that you can reach out to members who have not yet renewed. Since the third round of invoices was just deployed, now is a great time to deploy that message from the local network.
We can custom-make PDF renewal forms (and new member forms) with your Network logo and pre-filled dues amounts.
Each year, local network Presidents are asked to sign the affiliation agreement. This is an annual administrative task that we ask network Presidents to perform and understand the obligations of local networks as it relates to its relationship with Women’s Council National. In local networks with a corresponding state network, a copy of the signature will be sent as well (note, state networks do not need to sign affiliation agreements until the new model is in place in 2021). The elements of the agreement include the operating standards (also known as the network model), branding compliance, and termination and revocation clause. Each year we get 100% compliance with networks. Please see the attached which should take just a few minutes to review and sign. Thank you for your compliance!
