IACD’s Membership, Communications and Marketing committee is responsible for expanding the membership of the association and of ensuring that we are providing accessible and useful member services and products. Periodically the committee undertakes member consultation surveys and marketing recruitment campaigns. This year our focus was upon reaching out again to lapsed members and those who for some reason have decided not to renew their membership. Over the coming year the committee will be focussing upon reaching out to organisations to become members, whether these be local authorities, universities, foundations and non-governmental organisations. In recent years our individual memberships have increased significantly, but our organisational membership has fallen. We believe that is a reflection of financial cuts to the budgets of such organisations.
IACD Member map
We are starting to populate a map of our members around the globe! The red pointers represent national CD networks and blue pointers represent individual members. (This map is indicative only and does not pinpoint every member). One priority over the coming years is to expand our presence in South America. This is work in progress!
