    Members Present: Miriam Rigby, Helen Clements, Mary-Michelle Moore, Wayne Sanders, Anne Larrivee


     


    *Used Google Hangouts and introduced ourselves once we had all entered the online meeting platform


     


    *Discussed membership trend numbers


    June – 5 welcome emails to new members and 2 welcome-back emails to reinstated


    July – 6 welcome emails to new members and 3 welcome-back emails to reinstated


    August –  1 welcome email to a new member and 2 welcome-back emails to reinstated


    September – we sent 9 welcome emails to new members


     


    But would like to find annual totals to compare; Helen said she would contact past president


     


    *There was a suggestion to develop a survey which could be passed out through various ANSS email lists. Miriam volunteered to develop the survey. Contact Megan Griffin for emails; perhaps they have an email list


    This survey will give us an idea of how are current members are involved and perhaps how to reach out to those who are no longer members


     


    *Suggestion was made to increase facebook participation


     


    *Idea to increase Twitter participation, Erin was managing the Twitter account but Mary-Michelle could make a great candidate to assist with twitter updates. Will find out more details soon


     


    *Idea to create map with clusters of where ANSS members are located throughout different parts of the US. Miriam is researching this project’s feasibility.


     


    *Suggestions to update website more often, and other social media


     


    *Agenda for midwinter will be sent out soon with plans to find out some of the updates
