The committee put into place some procedures that should prevent us from losing members during the renewal process. CALL now has a renewal grace period so that those who have not renewed will not be placed on inactive status. We also have renewal reminders on a set schedule in Neon. Need the membership due email schedule, membership overdue email schedule, and grace period memorialized in the Handbook. The Handbook or shared Neon documentation should also remind committee members that all dates on emails need to be updated and the sender changed from the current President to the incoming President/current Vice-President.

Julie is the Faculty Scholarship and Educational Technology Librarian at Chicago-Kent.
I manage three full-time faculty support specialists, run the institutional repository, provide Blackboard assistance, and teach advanced Word skills and other technology-related topics.
Where did you grow up, and where else have you lived before coming to Chicago? Do you have a favorite among those places?
My favorite place among the places I have lived is Pittsburgh, where I lived most of my life. I went to college in Johnstown, Pa., and worked in New York City for a year. In addition, I spent a semester in London. Continue reading New Member Profile: Julie Tedjeske Crane

During the 2019-2020 year, the major project of the CALL Membership Committee was managing the transfer of membership information as part of the transition in association management systems from Wild Apricot to NeonCRM.
Over the year, the Membership Committee also assisted with updating the CALL Listserv email list and updating member information in NeonCRM.
During the 2018-2019 year the Membership Committee published updates to the CALL Membership Directory in September 2018, November 2018, and December 2018.
Over this year the Membership Committee also assisted with updating the CALL Listserv email list and updated member information in Wild Apricot.
As per the 2019 Bylaws Amendment, the Committee removed the Associate member category from Wild Apricot prior to the start of the 2019-20 membership renewal period.
During the 2017-2018 year, the Membership Committee published updates to the CALL Membership Directory in July 2017, September 2017, and January 2018. Over this year, the Membership Committee also assisted with updating the CALL Listserv email list and we worked with AALL representatives to create a list of potential CALL members.
Chair: Therese Clarke Arado
As of May 2017, CALL had over 230 members. An exact number is not available as the renewal process for the new CALL year began and I had not pulled a report just prior.
The CALL Directory was produced once this year, in May. Corrections/updates are made by the Membership Committee. Then, the update is posted by the Internet Committee on CALL’s website. Members are also able to look at directory information via Wild Apricot, however the PDF online provides additional information. The organization index will be added shortly.

The 2015-2016 Membership Committee was Therese Clarke Arado and Annie Mentkowski (co-charis), Christine Klobucar, and Jeff Meyerowitz. Continue reading Membership Committee 2016 Annual Report
Co-Chairs: Therese Clarke Arado and Annie Mentkowski.
Committee Members: Christine Klobucar, Lindsey Carpino, Clare Hoyt and Jeff Meyerowitz.
As of May 31, 2015, CALL had 254 members. This is a decrease over the previous year.
The CALL Directory was produced twice this year, once in November and once in May. Corrections/updates are made by the Membership Committee, with the assistance of AALL staff. Then, the update is posted by the PR/Internet Committee on CALL’s website. In the 2015-2016 year we hope to get back to the four updates from previous years (September, November, February and May).
The Committee sent renewal invoices to members in late April 2015. We will work with the Treasurer throughout the year to receive membership information. We will also work to improve communication with the Mentorship and Leadership Development Committee.
