Topics:

  • Should PHDSC continue to try to attract such a diverse type of members, or narrow its focus? What might need to change in its activities or positioning if such a narrowing were to be recommended?
  • What is the value proposition for joining PHDSC? Does it differ by member type? Is it sustainable into the future?
  • Does PHDSC play a significant enough role in workforce development? What should its members expect in this area? Does anything need to change about PHDSC's membership structure to support these activities?
