Recently many of you completed a survey concerning potential, optional changes to the NEHS Connect system. Thank you for responding so thoughtfully; we received many comments and numeric responses that will guide future decisions. Highlights from the data received:
- 87% of chapters hold induction once a year;
- 71% of chapters induct between 10-50 new members each year, while 12% induct more than 50;
- 85% of respondents would be very likely or likely to use a “batch” upload system to simplify membership enrollment.
While we want to stress that any changes to the NEHS Connect system will be optional, we are encouraged that so many Advisors would welcome an easier way to upload memberships, particularly since so many chapters enroll significant numbers of new members each year.
We continue to work with the IT department at Northern Illinois University to enhance all our systems, particularly in light of the responses Advisors have provided. Once the enhanced system is ready, we will alert all Advisors to new options in NEHS Connect.
