A Time for GFWC's Seasonal Recruitment Campaign
"Three New Members is a GREAT Reason to Recruit This Season"
Based on your feedback, GFWC is initiating a new, nationwide membership recruitment initiative, which builds upon the previous ACT in OCT campaign. Join GFWC clubs nationwide in our seasonal membership campaign: "Three New Members is a Great Reason to Recruit This Season."
There is a reason in every season to roll out the red carpet to invite and excite potential new members across the year. Each season will focus on a different theme:
“Rake in New Members”
Fall: September, October, and November
Recruitment Report due December 1
“Flurry of Members”
Winter: December, January, and February
Recruitment Report due March 1
Spring: March, April, and May
Recruitment Report due June 1
“Warm Up with Members”
Summer: June, July, and August
Recruitment Report due September 1
Recruiting members is a year-round process, and our new initiative reflects this. A club that recruits three new members each season will end the year with 12 new members. Plan creative membership recruitment campaigns and events around the many national awareness and commemoration months and days aligned with GFWC Community Service Programs (Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach, and Public Issues), the GFWC Signature Project: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention, and GFWC Juniors’ Special Project: Advocates for Children.

Clubs achieving and reporting three new members, as a result of their seasonal recruiting efforts will be recognized in the GFWC Clubwoman Magazine.
