CCI-GRC Membership Committee Spotlight
Since the formation of the Grand River Chapter in 2017, the Membership Committee has been dedicated to maintaining and expanding the member base in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Brantford, and surrounding areas. Initially, the Membership Committee also included Social Media responsibilities. Recently, the Membership Committee narrowed down our mandate to include only membership and marketing related duties, as Social Media became their own committee. This change has allowed the Membership Committee to take a proactive role in providing assistance to current members, engaging new members to join CCI, and coming up with initiatives that will improve the member experience.
During the first year, the newly formed Grand River Chapter finished the fourth quarter with 436 members. Currently the Grand River Chapter is at an impressive 497 members at the beginning of the fourth quarter of the Chapter’s third active year. From inception in 2017 there has been steady growth in the number of new members taking part in CCI. These members include Condominiums, individuals and professionals. An important role of the Membership Committee is to follow up with all previous and existing members to ensure they understand and see the value in renewing the CCI-GRC membership each and every year.
Being a member of CCI-GRC makes you part of a family of over 30,000 condominium units throughout this region. There are many benefits to being part of this family, including discounted rates on CCI educational courses, advocacy on behalf of condominium corporations and exposure to industry experts in various fields serving the condo community. Access to networking with industry professionals at various events throughout the year is also one of the many advantages of being a CCI-GRC member. As a member of CCI you may also provide blog submissions which will be posted to the CCI-GRC website.
As we look forward to a new year, the Membership Committee is even more dedicated to ensure all members have access to education, advocacy and benefit from the vast knowledge and experience all members bring to the organization. Look out for new membership initiatives, including targeting newly-built condominium corporations, as we plan for 2020 and beyond. The Future is indeed Looking Grand!
