Member Services Committee


The Member Services Committee (MSC) manages membership benefits, and develops, recommends and implements programs for member recruitment and retention. To carry out these responsibilities, the MSC coordinates appointment and outreach activities of MSC Regional Representatives. The MSC is a main point of contact for regional groups, as they develop, and assists in their coordination with the NORDP Board. The MSC also develops and implements membership survey data instruments as necessary to ensure that statistical data and information on the membership are maintained and that NORDP has a pulse on the types of resources needed to effectively support the membership at large. Through collaboration with the other NORDP committees and working groups, the MSC helps ensure that appropriate communication and valuable information and resources are effectively delivered to all NORDP members.
