Are You an Engaged Member?
An engaged member interacts with the organization often enough and in meaningful enough ways that they find personal value in the relationship. MEA fosters an environment that promotes such interaction: encourages contribution, builds connections, communicates regularly, and creates confidence for all members. We encourage you to (1) join an MEA Board Committee and (2) talk to your colleagues and encourage others to become a member of MEA. For more information about the Committees, email staff@sfmea.com.
