The Los Altos Village Association (LAVA) has named Shelly Potvin as membership coordinator in a new position that will focus on implementing the goals for the 1997 membership campaign.
At a recent LAVA goal-setting retreat, the membership committee established a business plan to increase membership, enhance merchant relations and encourage a high level of merchant participation in all programs and promotions.
Potvin, of Los Altos, a graduate of the University of Phoenix, has worked in sales for several years before she started developing systems using principles for setting up offices, and customizing office and home office environments.
She intends to talk to new businesses about LAVA and contact other businesses whose memberships have expired. Potvin will maintain the LAVA member database and handle membership billing.
