Presentation Transcript
  • As Stephen Covey says, "Seek first to understand, then to be understood." Before implementing any motivational strategies, take into account the factors which are existent within your club (personalities, personal lives, etc.)
start off on the right foot
Start off on the Right Foot
  • Don't start off the year with unreachable expectations. Keep a positive, enthusiastic attitude, and make your goals seem attainable.
create an incentive program
Create an Incentive Program
  • Incentives can be as small as candy for a job well done, or implementing a points system based on levels of involvement. Contact the CCAL Office for suggestions on creating an incentive system tailored especially for your club.
lead by example
Lead by example
  • Do what you say you will. If you are expecting your members to attend meetings on time and get their projects completed, you should do the same.
recognize good work
Recognize good work
  • Let your members know you appreciate them by:
    • Create an annual "Club Member of the Year" award, which is presented on an annual basis.
    • Include a "kudos" section to your meetings, where club members can thank each other for what they have done to help each other out.
    • Buy the person a soft drink at The Grille, and tell them how good of a job they did.
    • Send flowers/balloons
    • Bring a food to the next club meeting and praise the individual in front of his/her peers.
    • Say "Thank You, I appreciate all that you do."

Increase Involvement
  • Share praise Freely
    • Important to all members, and especially new members, is positive reinforcement for a job well done. Often, simple acknowledgements are best—a special thank you during a club or committee meeting, a personal thank you note, a word of encouragement. Consider creating “Kudos” column in a newsletter or website to list members who have done their jobs well, made good suggestions, or gone above and beyond.
increase involvement8
Increase Involvement
  • Share your enthusiasm
    • Attitude is infectious. How you feel about making positive changes to your club will affect how members respond. Be upbeat and enthusiastic—your members will be motivated to support your efforts
  • Have an informal gathering
    • Invite new members to meet with club officers in a casual, non-club setting. This will help them become acquainted informally with the leadership team where they can ask questions.
increase involvement9
Increase Involvement
  • Emphasize Social Involvement
    • You want to involve members in your club socially as well as through activities. Socialize with members during and outside of meetings.
    • Share happy moments together—birthdays, holidays, etc.
  • Communicate Constantly
    • Open communication is vital to the success of your club. It creates a comfortable, productive environment that will motivate members to do their best. Encouraging input from members and using club meetings, newsletters, and website to communicate club happenings will help you with the task.

  • Make it fun
    • Have some fun while encouraging members to mix with their fellow members. Before a club meeting begins, select a member to be the “Secret Lion.” In a clique-free club everyone mingles freely and will eventually meet the Secret Lion. As the meeting nears a close, you ask the Secret Lion to identify those members who never made contact, and encourage the Tail Twister to humorously levy a fine. Done with a light touch, the Secret Lion method gets the “no-cliques” message across.

  • Attendance Cues
    • Paying close attention to attendance trends can help uncover retention problems. Not attending meetings is one of the first signs of lack of member interest. Confer with your secretary and get a list of members who are “slipping.” If they have missed three meetings in a row, call them and find out why. Personally calling them shows them that you care.
  • Scramble Seating Assignments
    • Change seating arrangements at meetings from time to time to allow all members to become better acquainted.

  • New Members make great Greeters
    • Have new members serve as greeters for club functions for the first several weeks of their membership. It’s a great way for them to meet all club members.
  • Retention is for All members
    • While making sure new members feel welcomed, involved and comfortable, it is important to remember long-term members. As people belong to an organization for a longer period of time, their goals and needs may change. Let long-time members know that their continued membership is important by periodically asking them if they are still satisfied with the club.

Club Dynamics
  • Think Positively
    • When considering any changes to your club, keep a positive attitude. Your club might be steeped in tradition and used to doing things a certain way, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try something new. Today’s “experiment” could be tomorrow’s new tradition.
  • Mix it up
    • Keep your club meetings fresh by trying something new every once in awhile. Consider having people change where they sit every few meetings to encourage camaraderie with new people, add a new quick agenda item to boost morale (such as suggestion of the month or recognizing a member who went beyond the call of duty) or change the order of your agenda items (make sure everyone involved knows if you do this so they will be prepared!).

  • Change meeting places
    • By changing locations you will also give a new perspective to the meeting. Possible venues include different restaurants, parks, hotels etc.
  • Give Ownership
    • Allow members to lead the activities. This will make the members feel needed and increase their motivation to do more in the club.
