Programme for week commencing 30th August 2012
Our Membership Action Group, coordinated by Senior Vice President Rachel Ashley says:
This week’s meeting is about membership recruitment, retention and mentoring. The Membership Action Group would welcome your comments and thoughts on the four areas below. We will then use the discussion to formulate the club’s membership plan for 2012/13.
1) We are a Rotary eClub, we have an ethos that binds us all as members, but what is this and how does it differentiate us from any other clubs? This is our unique selling point (“USP”) and is the reason people will want to join us rather than any other club.
2) The opposite of USP is our unique annoyance point (“UAP”) and the reason(s) members will leave. So tell us, what is not working for you at the moment. If we don’t understand what is not quite right about the club, how can we fix it and make a club that works for all of its members? How do we make this feedback from members a key part of the club and hence increase retention?
3) Our ‘vaccination’ against the new members leaving is the mentor/mentee relationship (“MMR”). What do you think this relationship needs to be to make sure those who are new to Rotary and/ or new to the club become an effective Rotarian as quickly as possible?
