The membership committee was formed this year and a number of activities were planned by regional directors. An operating procedure was prepared to help regional directors step by step in planning and implementing regional plans. A request was made from all regional directors to submit a list of activities in their region by August 30 2014 in order to get the approval from CSBE council. All regional activities were discussed in the membership committee before being planned and funded.A number of activities are planned for the coming year for different regions and they will be carried out by the help CSBE seed finding. The membership committee had a number of conference calls over the year to discuss all plans and to update all members of past/planned activities.
I also had meetings with Rene to discuss and implement a new format for the CSBE newsletter. It resulted in a new Newsletter format which has been adapted since then. I have also helped the webmaster in preparing CSBE newsletters.
