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.

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.
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.
Membership retention presents both a challenge and an opportunity for GFWC clubs. Healthy clubs should always strive to retain their current members, whether they are long time members or new recruits. The latest Membership Quarterly focuses on strategies for membership engagement and activities that ensure continued membership. 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.
