To provide the membership and the public with accurate information and top quality education materials about marine animals and the training community and to increase and maintain IMATA membership through guest services, career guidance, benefits assessment and all other membership inquires.
The committee’s goal is to assist in the organizational goal of educating the membership and the general public; and to focus on customer service. This will be accomplished through the production of articles for Soundings Education Forum, answering inquiry letters (student, career, and general information), helping IMATA’s Secretary in replying to membership inquiries, and contacting members when mail is returned to the Central Office. The Education and Membership Services Committee is also committed to finding new benefits at all levels and re-evaluating levels so that they serve our members optimally. This committee has also been tasked with developing incentives, and marketing devices to help grow our membership. We also assist the 1st Vice President in obtaining universities and colleges within a 3 state radius of the annual conference to canvas with postcards marketing the conference.
