Membership & Disciplinary Committee


The Membership Committee develops and implements an action plan for member-ship development. The ability of ECTA to serve the trademark community is directly related to the size and strength of the association’s membership base. To recruit new members, the Membership Committee sets goals, develops a plan for achieving them and communicates with association members and other committees in order to implement the plan. The Membership Committee leads the association’s recruiting efforts, and therefore encourages all members to reach out to colleagues and acquaintances in other law firms, at courts, in offices and in business corporations by asking them to join. The Membership Committee is regularly conducting association assessments in order to determine ECTA’s perception by members. The committee ensures that members are informed, involved, and recognized for their contributions to the association which will increase member satisfaction. Monitoring trends in attendance and length of membership can point out concerns that will be addressed by the Committee.
