    • Selected Board members are asked to call the new members, welcome them to the Board and review their role.
    • Current board members are asked to contact their Board Buddy prior to the first board meeting of the year.
    • The goal of this program is to help the newly elected board members feel more comfortable in their role and with the current board members.
  • Member level
    • Ask seasoned members to sign up to be buddies to new members.
    • As new members join the AFP {Chapter}, connect them with one of the seasoned members who signed up for the buddy program, and offer then one free educational program.
    • Seasoned members will contact the new member within the first 8 weeks of their join date and will connect with them in person at a chapter event to make them feel more comfortable with their new colleagues.
