The Membership Committee incorporates communication and generates revenue as well as maintaining our membership. The committee is chaired by Alanna Jones and is currently looking for volunteer members who are interested in spreading the mission and mandate of NATOA.
The Membership Committee will meet quarterly or as needed and the chair of the membership committee will report to the full Board of Directors on a regular and on-going basis.
The Membership Committee is responsible for growing the Membership, Finances of the organization through fund raising campaigns and personal contacts. The Membership Committee is also responsible to develop and deliver effective communications with existing and potential Members. The goal of the committee is to ensure NATOA can exist as an independent, self-sustaining organization, operated by the membership and responsible to the members.
The Membership Committee will develop strategies and execute approved methods of growing the membership of NATOA, which includes First Nation, Inuit and Métis people/communities (herein Aboriginal Peoples), anyone within the service provider community to Aboriginal Trust and any other organization/person with an interest in Aboriginal or Non-Aboriginal communities or trusts.
The Membership Committee will develop and deliver communications on behalf of NATOA to effectively communicate NATOA goals, events and any other message approved by the Board of Directors.
The Membership Committee will perform activities previously held by the Economic Viability Committee, as they will undertake fund raising through the corporate sector of Canada to raise the funding necessary to operate an independent organization. Committee members will be requested to work with existing contacts and funding sources to assist the committee in generating sufficient funding to operate. The end goal is to establish and maintain a national office that will coordinate all activities and report to the Board of Directors.
