What we were trying to accomplish
with specific recommendations
Keep what works.
Revise or discard what doesn’t
Stabilize and grow membership
The FIRST STEP is to HELPimprove the club experience.
Change task priorities
To more of what clubs NEED
Not just historical practice
Can’t look like an old man’s club
from the 1950’s
approved by majority but no consensus.
Years of calls for major changes

(Leading the Fun! Planning Guide for Officers)

2.4 Clubs should CONSIDERsome form ofcommunity service.
(Not to be a “Kiwanis”, but the fellowship of service delivery)
2.5Clubs should CONSIDER the value of a good speaker and meeting program
Member satisfaction is the key retention strategy.
It is vastly easier to retain a “customer” than to recruit one
A well-known business principle

Recruiting, best practices, committee

“Raison d’etre” , signature
