Membership Commitee

NACE will be an engaged membership organization for the catering and events industry. 
• The Membership Committee will look at ways to implement potential changes to bring up the retention rate 3 percentage points a year within the association
• The committee will discuss methods to improve retention within the association; decide if the benefits currently being offered are in the best interest to drive membership; and what we can do to give members what they are looking for with their NACE Membership
• The Board would like recommendations from the committee on what is needed to improve our retention rates, which will in turn drive new membership
