The responsibility of the NAACP Membership Chair is to think of creative ideas to increase the organization membership. The Chair should spend time developing innovative methods and techniques that can be implemented by the Membership Committee to increase the membership of the unit. The Membership Chair must be a motivator. A motivator is one who understands the personalities of those around them. They understand what it takes to get their team to respond by getting the task accomplished. Thus, the Membership Chair must provide recognition, rewards and incentives to get workers to produce memberships. As membership workers are recruited, the Chair and committee must spend their time energizing every member to produce memberships.
