Membership Committee

Committee Mandate

Membership recruitment and retention is a joint effort of CIRI National staff and CIRI Chapter volunteers. These efforts are coordinated through the CIRI National Membership Committee. This Committee meets by teleconference on an as-needed basis, and with representatives of CIRI National.

The Membership Committee:

  1. Works cooperatively with CIRI National to set annual recruitment and retention targets;
  2. Participates in outreach campaigns to encourage membership recruitment and renewals;
  3. Analyzes membership data supplied monthly by CIRI National to determine trends;
  4. Identifies opportunities to drive retention/recruitment;
  5. Encourages member engagement by welcoming new members through welcome calls and/or at events and promotes volunteerism; and
  6. Provides their boards and committee itself with timely feedback on developments within the membership base.

The Power of Volunteers


Through the dedication of 60+ volunteers who donate their expertise and time to CIRI, we are able to further our mandate.

These collective efforts contribute to the transparency and integrity of the Canadian capital market by advancing the practice of investor relations, the professional competency of our members and the stature of the profession.

Thank you to all who have given generously of their time and expertise.
