Membership Retention

This note is from District President Paul Cuneo:

I am enjoying writing my series of articles for the Scorecard.  The July/August article addresses membership retention.  New member attraction and retention will be a topic for the District meeting on July 4.

When I received the QUIP report from ACBL on April 1, I was shocked that D16 ranked last in new member retention.  I immediately contacted ACBL to request data on membership retention from the largest clubs in our District.  I was optimistic that some clubs were excellent and others would lag.  After I received the data from ACBL, I started talking with teachers, club owners/managers, unit board members and others about the issue.  Through those discussions, I compiled the list of Best Practices for New Member Retention.  Click here to see it.  Then please encourage your clubs to adopt as many as possible.
