G – GOLDEN F- FORCE OF W – WOMEN C – COMPANY
We are a mobile society and membership in GFWC knows no geographical restrictions. Reach out to former/current GFWC members living in your hometown or nearby communities but who are not current members of your club.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Local sports organizations are a great way to maximize your audience to talk about GFWC and potentially gain new members. Look for partnering opportunities with other organizations. Make contact. Tell them who we are, what we do for the community and how partnering can benefit both organizations.
GOAL STTING FOR MEMBERSHIP INCREASE:
The future of a club depends on its ability to maintain and increase its membership. Invite at least one prospective member to a meeting or club event, distribute a GFWC/club brochure to a prospective member or distribute in a place of business for clients/customers to pick it up, participate in planning a membership recruitment activity.
SCHEDULE EXTRA TIME FOR MEMBERS TO SOCIALIZE:
At the first meeting of the club year, it is always fun to find out what everyone did or went during the club’s summer break.
HOW ABOUT AN ICE BREAKER?
After a long summer break, introductions may be needed to help “refresh” our memories of members’ name. Have each member introduce herself and answer a question with a “short” reply, i.e. “Where did you go this summer?”
Or what special day you or your family celebrated this past summer.
Milestone Wedding Anniversary, a new Grand Child, a new Great Grand Child, something special in your life.
Again I am challenging each District to see who can Drum Up more new members thought the rest of the year.
We gained 190 new members so let’s beat that number.
Also, sponsors be sure you list your name on the New Member forms as now you are part of our band and you are in our HORN section.
SO LETS DRUM AND BLOW OUR HORNS FOR NEW MEMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
