Tips to Improve Upper Management Support

  • Maintain fresh contacts with management.
  • Invite management to attend or speak at your meetings.
  • Encourage members to take the initiative to sell GEAPS to their management. Members are in the best position to demonstrate the benefits of GEAPS to their supervisors.
  • Clarify that GEAPS membership is for individuals rather than companies, but show management how membership benefits both the individual and the company.
  • Route your copy of In-Grain to management, noting articles you found valuable.
  • Keep management informed about meetings. Explain what you gain from the programs you attend.
  • Maintain strong technical programming in your yearly chapter meeting schedule – avoid too many social functions.
  • Keep meeting costs reasonable.
