Shannon, today is all about membership. What we are doing differently this year: we’ve created a membership committee. Our club seems to gain a few, lose a few. It’s not just about bringing in people but keeping the members we have here. We need new ideas! Creating a mentor program, and a welcoming committee. Change up the table layout at meetings, change up the food every now & then. If you have ideas, reach out to Shannon. He wants to hear them! Always more room for improvement to make the club better!
