Membership retention presents both a challenge and an opportunity for GFWC clubs. This edition of the Quarterly discusses the various reasons why clubs may lose a member and suggests ways to keep that member active and involved in club leadership and projects.
The focus this quarter is on Membership Recruitment, which is timely for planning recruitment strategies and events for this club year. The issue is full of ideas and themes for recruitment events and how to plan them, strategies for finding potential new members to invite and bring to events, and ideas for communication with potential members after events.
The theme of the first issue is the “Benefits of Belonging.” The publication outlines many of the valuable reasons to be a part of GFWC and how to find additional information about perks and programs.
