2015-2016 Member Diversity and Outreach Team

Committee Charge: The Member Diversity and Outreach Committee solidifies NACE’s position as the premier association for colleges and employers through targeted and customized outreach and initiatives to current, former and potential members. The team also strengthens NACE outreach initiatives for diversity advancement and effective engagement of diverse members for leadership opportunities. In close collaboration with the NACE staff and building on the work of the 2013-2014 Membership Outreach and the Diversity Research Committees, the team will contribute to the overall success of NACE by achieving the following outcomes: • Working with the NACE staff, conduct an analysis of how the new membership model has influenced the demographics of member organizations and provide any related recommendations by January 5, 2015. • Strengthen the strategic intentionality and outcomes of membership outreach efforts. o As soon as possible, identify targets and implement strategies for the 2014-2015 NACE AMBASSADORS outreach initiative. o Identify opportunities and provide recommendations for encouraging under-represented groups of employers (e.g. size and industry group) and colleges/universities (e.g. two-year) to join NACE and engage as members; explore potential NACE participation in events associated with underrepresented groups (NSBE, etc.) to increase visibility and presence. • By March 1, 2015 develop and recommend a three-year plan with objectives and strategies for increasing membership size and diversity with 1) attention to embedding diversity into member engagement and leadership development efforts and 2) focus on increasing NACE membership particularly among under-represented employer and college/university groups.
