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 Millington Junior Women's Club
Each year April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Kathleen Sweeney, Executive Director/Forensic Interviewer of The Child Advocacy Center of Tuscola County (CACTC), spoke at GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club (Michigan) monthly meeting and told members that 10% of the 235 reported cases of child abuse in 2017 in Tuscola County were from Millington Township, including Millington. It inspired them to take action with the "Color Me Blue" Project.
