Tips for Using the Council Welcome Letter
The Council Welcome Letter is used to welcome new members to the council.

  • Send the Welcome Letter as soon as you receive word from IFMA headquarters that a new member has joined your council.
  • Personalize the letter. Insert appropriate information about your council where indicated between these marks < >. You might also consider including the telephone number and e-mail address of a council officer for ease of contact.
  • The Welcome Letter is a great way to notify a new member of the benefits of council membership. Take pride in your council’s offerings and explain the value members receive through your online community, newsletters, Web site, Webinars and meetings. Be sure to include information about the next council event, and let the new member know that this is his or her personal invitation to participate.
