Regional Membership Coordinators (RMC)

IFWTWA is pleased to provide Regional Membership Coordinators (RMC). Their purpose is to assist in helping our members network, recruiting new members, plan local events, and when possible, assist in helping us provide press trips in the region they cover.

All of our RMCs volunteer and use their time and contacts to promote us. We appreciate their efforts. We support them with suggestions, brainstorming and working together to provide ideas on how to offer networking on a regional basis. We will announce any events on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, etc. as well as have the Administrative Director send announcements to members. We will also see that press releases go to particular area of the world on TravMedia, Food4Media, and other outlets.

Some areas, will have Co-Coordinators. Countries, cities, states and provinces are large and we have room for more RMCs. So, please let John Lamkin, Global Membership Chair, or the Administrative Director, know if you would be interested in being a RMC for your area.
