Re: ICG Membership
- With the current ICG structure, the local chapters should be handling
memberships questions and renewals.
It was earlier suggested that member be notified when their
membership is up. If the ICG centrally had to designate someone it
would create confusion since the member's designated contact is
within their local chapter. They could have renewed locally, and the
ICG would not be aware of it until the local chapter's quarterly
report is submitted to the ICG.
Would member retainment be a function of the 'central' ICG or the
local chapter? Currently there is not a post designated to work on
overall ICG member retainment. I would advise it not be a function
the ICG Treasurer to send out a thousand individual postcards
(earlier suggestion on this list) each year with a different format
for each chapter listing their local treasurer so the member can
Ideally an ICG's member's expiration should be coterminus with their
local chapter membership. Members should be able to check their
status with their local chapter.
Local chapters have requested copies of their ICG chapter listing for
reconciliation. Currently I do not give out full ICG membership data
with all chapters listed without the BOD's approval.

- Sorry, I read this after I posted it and it didn't make sense.
I do give local chapter reps an update when they ask for it, but it
only contains their chapter. If someone wants an entire ICG listing,
not just their chapter, there has to be a reason submitted to the
Board for approval.
Other info I've given is a chapter's head count to a neighboring
chapter - it's part of my annual reports. Usually the requestor has
a legitimate-sounding reason for asking.
