                     Considered "on-the mend" in 2005
Why are Sections
Struggling?
      Lack of volunteers leading to burnout
      Apathy of leaders
      General decline in the economy, folks are more focused on
       their immediate needs
      Competition from alternative, more focused professional
       organizations
      Geographical spread of section
      “What’s in it for me?” attitude
      Changing, more demanding work environment that does
       not allow (time) for supporting volunteer professional
       organizations during working hours



                                                               47
Trends
   Shifting Industry Base
   Volunteer Burnout
   Increase applications for Project Connect Grants
   Re-introduce “Best Newsletter” Award
   Assist Local Sections “In Need”
   Facilitate Information Sharing between Local
    Sections
