Ideas for Welcome Packet
As mentioned previously …
- A new mission statement that is specific for the Society. It would help to make it an exclusive entity of Whitefoord, Inc. and give something meaningful for the members to say.
- Membership benefits
- Tax write-off?
- Networking with like minded individuals in the community
- Resume benefits?
- Community involvement
- Testimonials from current members
- Exemplary members, like a “spotlight section”
- What they like about the program
- What they have achieved in the program
- Calendar/event banner?
- Highlights from previous events
- DETAILED descriptions about future events
- Special guests/speakers
- Catered? Will there be food? Will there be alcohol?
- Benefits of attending the event/what it will offer
- How will the event impact the community (important for philanthropic/charitable events)
- Link(s) to social media platforms & links to Whitefoord’s website
Additional ideas …
- Take the “Executive Committee Members” out of the letter and place them into a designated place in the packet, that way the new members could place a name and what the member does with a face.
- Question: does the Society have a board (as in board members)? I noticed during one of my bing searches there was a result that brought me to a Morgan Stanley webpage, and a financial advisor had this within her biography, “She has recently joined the Whitefoord Leadership Society for Young Professionals Board” in her biography. If there is a board in addition to the executive committee members, I believe the board members should also be featured in the welcome packet. If there are more than 7 perhaps they should have a whole page dedicated to them? I suggest there being a short biography for each committee/board member that includes a professional picture, their name and title, and a brief synopsis of what they do within the organization.
- Here is an example of an advisory board page (for Whitefoord, since there are not as many people to place on the page, I recommend having a short summary of what that member does):
