Greetings to all and welcome to the third edition of Sravanti this year.
In my last message, I talked about keeping you informed of the Management Committeeaction plans as we go along. The theme of this message is membership drive. The threeinitiatives listed below relating to membership drive are one of the early priorities for thecommittee:
Membership drive to increase life and annual membership of TAAI.
Membershipis the life blood of any organisation and without the active participation and support ofmembers, TAAI will not be strong and healthy on a sustainable basis. ManagementCommittee plans to actively undertake a membership drive in all localities ofMelbourne. As part of this drive, the committee members expect to contact as manypeople as possible in the community to sign up as members. We request you, who arenot life members currently, either to renew their membership if they have beenmembers in the past or take up membership if they have not been members at all.Taking up life membership is another option for those who are not currently lifemembers. We also take this opportunity to request TAAI members to talk to others inthe community regarding taking up TAAI membership. Membership fee details aregiven later in this note.
Maintain up to date and accurate membership list (life and annual).
One of thechallenges for the Management Committee is not only creating an accuratemembership list but maintain it as we go along. The Management Committee isplanning to achieve this objective by using a list that was considered to be reasonablyaccurate from the recent past and build it in to an up to date and current list. This isgoing to be a tedious process and takes time and effort. But we believeit is importantto achieve this if TAAI is to maintain an accurate membership list and it is a statutoryrequirement to maintain correct membership list at all times.
Maintain a database of membership contact details and of non members in thecommunity.
The email list that is
currently available needs to be verified for itsaccuracy and completeness. With an up to date database of contact details, we will beable to serve our membership better in terms of TAAI communications and Sravantidistribution among other things.Also, there is one other initiative that I like to mention here. Management Committee wouldlike to get feedback from you on your expectations of TAAI, activities that you like TAAI totake up and what is important to you as a TAAI member. We will be sending a feedbackform to you all seeking your valuable inputs shortly.Please note that the membership form is included in Sravanti and you can also downloadfrom TAAI website.
TAAI Membership fee details are as follows:
Life Membership: $250;Annual Membership Family: $25;Annual Membership: Single: $15I hope you enjoy reading this edition of Sravanti. Stay tuned.
