Increasing Membership and Keeping you Members Interested go hand in hand. Without interesting topics and events to keep members engaged what’s the point in getting together. Many ideas for engagement can be found in our Keeping Members page. So we’ll concentrate on recruiting new members and communication platforms for your branch.

Your branch membership is your best resource. Getting them involved will give them a sense of ownership and community. You’ll need to identify their individual strengths and abilities and get them involved in helping make your branch the best it can be.
