Membership and Communications

This committee focuses on the recruitment and retention of members in all of the IASA membership categories with special emphasis on Active and School Service Members.

AASA membership will also be encouraged through this committee. New superintendents will be contacted yearly and invited to join IASA. The Membership Chair will work with members of the region to identify potential IASA School Service Members and invite them to join the IASA.

Members of this committee also serve as one of the Region’s representatives in the Membership Strategies Delegation.
