1/1/2010 - The Captains Program
The New York Capital Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants is embarking on a new program to help promote the chapter's events to members and nonmembers. This effort will complement our already extensive email, newsletter and website communications in hopes of reaching more people and increasing participation. We believe this program will improve the chapter's delivery of services to members and the government financial community fulfilling our goal of enhancing public financial management. Please consider being integral to the success of this program and become a Captain!
The program is simple. Volunteer members from government agencies and private firms represented in the chapter will be asked to be our marketuing liaisons in their organizations whenever we announce an upcoming event. This can be done by emailing members and nonmembers in their organization who might be interested in attending the event. They could post flyers throughout the organization and possibily on their website. We believe this will maximize awareness of what the chapter has to offer and increase membership.
If you are interested in becoming a Captain, please contact Sigrid Coons, Vice President for Membership at firstname.lastname@example.org or (518)473-7674.
We plan to list the Captains on our website to help with this communication and marketing strategy. We will also honor those who prefer not to have their name included on such a list.
