Introduction

Introduction

  • Research into both membership and communication is a fluid study by nature.

  • This research was conducted in collaboration with ITEA to learn the status of affiliate and ITEA membership and communication abilities.


What was done

What was done…

  • Lari Price, ITEA’s Member Services Coordinator, shared a list of current and past ITEA affiliates in the United States and a roster of ITEA members (May of 2008).

  • A method to collect and compare data by region and state was established.

  • Zoomerang questionnaires were sent to ITEA affiliate representatives. Response rate was 48%.

  • 100% response rate achieved through email, networking, phone calls to affiliates presidents, membership chairpersons, state supervisors.


Questions i focused on

Questions I focused on…

Membership-Related Questions

  • What is the current official name of your state association?

  • Current number of “regular” and other such as “life, professional, student, etc.”

    Communication-Related Questions

  • Web abilities

  • Postal abilities

  • Email abilities

  • Electronic networking abilities

  • Publications


Of the 46

of the 46...

  • 35 affiliate websites had membership forms/information.

  • 32 affiliates shared information about their state conference.

  • 26 affiliates had information on how to honor a colleague/awards.

  • 10 affiliates had ITEA membership information online.

  • 5 affiliates formally share that they are an ITEA affiliate.


Recommendations

Recommendations

  • There are between 3,933 to 4,271 additional/potential teachers in the respective state/regional affiliates who could also become ITEA members. Why are they not?

  • ALL affiliate members should also be ITEA members.

  • Benefits and services could grow from 10% to nearly 23% of the total population of technology educators in the United States.


Recommendations1

Recommendations

  • The role and responsibility of affiliates to ITEA must be clearly defined.

  • Affiliates must share information about ITEA membership & affiliation.

  • Affiliates need to be more active in helping grow membership.

  • The role and responsibility of ITEA to the affiliates needs to be more clearly defined.

  • Mutual services that benefit (and help) both affiliates and ITEA need to be explored in order to attract, sustain, and support membership.
