2011-13 Strategic Goals
- Determine role of Trade Companies and Rep Agencies in NIBA – Carefully analyze risks and rewards and present a recommendation to the Board of Directors on membership of these types of companies.
- Review Current Membership Structure– Consider the addition of new categories including the current structure, the end-user, and all entities in between.
- Review and Restructure Dues – Project dues scenarios based on different revenue tiers for Manufacturer and Distributor members, and consider incorporation of Annual Convention booth costs.
- Improve Prospect List – Involve key Manufacturer members and NIBA staff in development of the NIBA prospect list.
- Create Incentive Programs – Research beneficial programs that incentivize current members to be more involved in recruitment of new members. (e.g.: co-op dollars for first-time Distributor members)
- Create Recruiting & Retention Aids – Starting with a clear value statement, materials will be developed how to sell NIBA in a quantifiable and marketable fashion.
