ARDA-WIN Content Group Objectives
The ARDA WIN Networking Content Group is responsible for the growth and retention of the membership base.
In addition, this content group is responsible for creating and overseeing networking opportunities to sustain the membership as well as attract non-members to join (For example, "WIN Wednesdays"). Recommendations from the Networking Content Group are subject to review and approval of the ARDA WIN Committee and/or ARDA.
This content group was created to help inform and engage the ARDA membership at large to encourage participation in this group’s overall activities. It supports ARDA by helping to publicize specific ARDA WIN events and programs (via print media, social media, etc.).
The team works closely with ARDA Marketing, Communications & Industry Relations and Membership staff, and it consists of a core group and representatives from the other content groups so all the various initiatives are promoted.
