  • A Shining Armor Award Card (Form #4292)
  • The most recent Council Newsletter
  • A list of dates detailing upcoming Programs and Fund Raisers
  • A schedule for Council Meetings

slide23

RETAIN (cont.)

What are some of the Retention Committee responsibilities? (cont.)

For New Members:

Prior to next meeting immediately after a New Member (or Members) are exemplified, the following steps should be taken by the Retention Committee:

  • Make sure the New Member(s) is(are) contacted by phone.
  • Make sure the New Member(s) is(are) offered a ride to the meeting. Better yet just pick him(them) up.
  • Make sure the New Member(s) is(are) signed up to work at the next Council function (Not as the Function Chairman, though!)
  • Sending the New Member(s) and his (their) spouse(s) a “Welcome to St. Bonaventure Council #1234” Card” will not hurt.

Why?

A habit of attending meetings must be established early in his tenure. This will go a long way in avoiding the “out of sight, out of mind” syndrome.

slide24
