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.
Minnie Bell Johnson
Minnie Bell Johnson is described by her fellow clubwomen as the happiest person they know, with a smile that brightens the whole room. Having just celebrated her 100th birthday, she has many reasons to smile. During her time with the Portland Woman’s Club (Oregon), she has served as both the club treasurer and club president. She’s still an active member to this day, voting on issues and club elections, and participating in projects like handing out personal care products to homeless women at the Rose Haven Women and Children’s Day Shelter.
