GFWC’s Membership Quarterly is mailed to club presidents four times during the year to share with their club members. The focus of this GFWC publication is to highlight specific GFWC membership benefits and provide resources for membership needs, such as recruitment and retention strategies. A downloadable version of each newsletter will be posted to gfwc.org upon completion.

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.

GFWC Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
