President's Distinguished ... so close!
Is your club struggling to get one last member to achieve the 20 member mark?
Consider being a dual member for a struggling club. Your club might be one of the many clubs struggling to get that one last member to join to achieve distinguished status. It's not too late to call around to see if other clubs can help out and become a dual member.
Membership costs may be lower now with the pandemic without the cost of expensive room rental fees. Consider giving an incentive (bare minimum cost to join) for the month of June. Create a contact list with your executive of past members or members of other clubs who have been visiting your club that might be able to afford to be a dual member. Perhaps a last minute FUN-raiser for a struggling member who cannot afford to renew.
Your club has worked very hard to achieve education awards, training officers and you might even be one member away from receiving President's Distinguished. How unfortunate would it be if your club failed to achieve this last member.
As the VP of membership for our club Speak to Inspire we achieved 2 DTM awards, 16 additional education awards, all officers were trained, officer list was put through on time and over this year we had 4 new members join our club. Our only weak point is we are 3 members away from 20. As a plan of action we have an incentive to join this month with a minimum fee for new members, reinstated members and dual members. A plan to help struggling members to renew is in place with a FUN-raiser to gather funds for these 2 members. We are looking forward to achieving President's Distinguished again this year. As in coming President I have great plans for the future of our club to give our members an opportunity to achieve personal success and be the inspiring mentors that our club produces, and to achieve an amazing success plan for our club. GO Speak to Inspire GO!
