The Co-Presidents Dear Friends and Supporters of GlobeMed at Whitman, This year, our chapter set out with a goal of increasing our reach and recognition. As a small, activism-minded campus, we realized GlobeMed needed to create its niche. To accomplish this, we wanted to grow and diversify our membership, and show our campus that GlobeMed could be applicable to anyone who wanted to join. We focused much of our attention on Whitman’s activities fair in order to interest new members, with a different tactic of helping potential future members visualize themselves applying their talents through a system of committees under each executive position. With the successful development and reception of this approach, we were able to have some of the highest numbers of members recruited during the fall term. Another large goal of ours was working on the relationship between our partner and GROW (Grassroots On-site Work) team. Both sides have previously expressed a desire to work more closely together in the months leading up to departure. This manifested in monthly Skype calls with our partner, co-presidents, and GROW interns to work out a list of deliverables, grants to apply to, and needed troubleshooting. Overall, these adjustments in communication had everyone feeling more prepared in the time leading up to departure. Next year, we hope to further communication by improving officer transitions and record-keeping, especially with the new Salesforce system implemented by GlobeMed Global Headquarters. In our recruitment process, we want to hold onto what we have learned this past year, and re-implement the successful elements this fall. We are all so glad to have had this opportunity, and many of us look forward to continuing working with the GlobeMed Executive Board this coming Fall. Sincerely, Kari Hampson, Jessie Friedman (fall) & Haley Case (spring) 2016-2017 Co-Presidents GlobeMed at Whitman
