In late 2012, the Metrolina Chapter Board of Directors met to discuss strategic planning for the chapter with short term and long-term goals for the chapter including increasing member engagement as we had seen a decline in recent months. Part of the conversation included commentary from the 2012 Regional LIM where many of the R5 chapters were showing 20% engagement for metropolitan areas and 10% or less for geographically diverse chapters. The Board of Directors looked at several potential opportunities to engage our existing members including the opportunity to utilize some method of remote meetings to increase member engagement. Part of this reasoning included acknowledging that our chapter footprint services 59 of the 100 counties in North Carolina. We opted to make several changes including our member services, board structure and volunteer organization. This strategy has allowed the chapter to increase membership and engagement across the state.
