Council Shelves Member Directory

As mentioned in prior postings and dues referendum information, Council has been exploring the creation of a members' directory, where engagers and directors could find member listings and be able to contact members directly. Council was preparing for a small-scale survey to determine the extent of the need for this kind of service, especially since there are other directory services out there.

Regrettably, Council has had to shelve the project due to budget limitations. Although the survey itself would have been inexpensive due to a limited scope, Equity does not currently have the financial resources or staff to bring a directory project to fruition, should it have received member support.

We'll keep the idea on the books for a possible future revival, if finances permit. Staff will also keep an eye out for alternative cost-effective options to create such a directory.
