Report from the Membership Working Group Posted
In January, we asked for COED members to strike a membership working group to address questions related to possible changes to COED’s membership structure. Members can read the working group’s original terms of reference where the executive asked the following questions:
- Should COED charge a membership fee?
- How do we, if at all, value inclusiveness while encouraging membership engagement?
- Who should be charged a membership fee? (i.e. individuals, institutions, other?)
- If a fee were charged, what would be an equitable fee?
COED members Beata Pawlowska, Joe Lipsett and Pierre Boulos agreed to form this working group. We have received their final report which is now accessible in the General Membership Group. Thanks again to Pierre, Joe & Beata for their work on this report. The executive have taken the recommendations into consideration and will be posting a response.
