Membership Growth and Retention

This workshop will give you suggestions about how to attract new members to
attend your chapter’s meetings and, also, how to motivate them to become involved in
chapter activities. As the words connote, “growth” means ways to increase the number
of new members in your chapter. “Retention” addresses actions and activities that
encourage members to renew from year to year and, even better, to become more
active in chapter activities.

Trainers will give you specific ideas on programs that are effective in various
areas of the state, both urban and rural. Through question-and-answer, you can
explore which ideas might work best in your geographical area. Trainers will provide
actual “how to” steps, as well as the details in the programs that they recommend.
