Marketing & Membership Committee

In 2018, the Membership Committee merged with the Marketing Committee. The Marketing and Membership committee handles the task of crafting HUPO’s marketing message (i.e., promoting proteomics and HUPO) as well as the marketing message for the various causes it promotes (e.g., HPP). The Marketing and Membership committee also plays a key role in supporting some fundraising efforts (e.g., contacting major philanthropic organizations, generating income for the society via various events). For increasing membership, the committee is to develop strategies of outreach and provide ideas of incentives to gather new members and retain current members. The HUPO website is an important tool for achieving these goals.
