The importance of new member orientation cannot be emphasized enough. Imagine belonging to a community and having only a vague idea of its goals, services, programs, history or traditions. Would you feel like you belonged? Would you be motivated and committed to reach your goals? Of course not! You’d likely be wondering why you joined the community at all.
The information presented during orientation provides a foundation for new members. It helps them understand how WomELLE functions, what their role will be and gives them the big picture of how WomELLE can help. When new members are properly informed, they are more likely to feel comfortable with the WomELLE and become actively involved in community activities right away. A properly oriented member is also one who is most likely to remain in WomELLE. WomELLE was created to inspire, educate and encourage engagement as a leader.
Members will need to RSVP to sign up. You will receive an email with a link TWO HOURS prior to the start of the meeting.
