When we talk with clubs, one theme is almost universal, the constant struggle to recruit new members. Every club needs a good base of active members in order to ensure that members are staying excited about the program.
This January 12th, please join D7 STAFF at the Membership Forum (Registration Form). We are taking an entire morning to focus on membership at a D7 event. Lessons from the best, tips on ways to make it easier for new and existing members, and activities to learn and share with you fellow D7 members. The event will be at the Church of the Resurrection 21060 Southwest Stafford Road, Tualatin, OR 97062
Club membership is a huge part of the Distinguished Club Program as both a minimum qualifying level of 20 members (or growth of net 5) and for two of the ten possible points the in program, one for each time the club gets 4 new members. Attendance at this event will give you the tools you need to grow your club.
I invite all officers of D7 to join us on the 12th from 8:30 to 12:15. Please use the Winter Training Registration form to sign up and let us know that you will be at the event. Attendance at this event will count as officer training for the December through February period. Note: To receive credit toward one of the goals in the Distinguished Club Program, at least four club officers must attend a district-sponsored training program twice a year.
