     One thing with student and young professional associations is the very high turnover rate. Every year – if not every two or three years - the members change as they move on in their lives and all the knowledge they acquired through their short stay leaves with them. So how do you recuperate this knowledge and how can you transfer it to incoming members?

“ People rarely struggle with an issue because of the lack of some specific piece of information; often, the best help is helping the person to come to a better understanding of their issue, how it developed, and how they can identify actions to address the issue more effectively.”

            Did you ever nottice when you talked with members of other clubs how you never quite seem to speak the same language?  You come up with a fundraising idea, they tell you about their own club's, you ask each other how it went and the dialogue ends here.  Or perhaps you decide to give their idea a try.  I know our club tried the famous Samosas fundraising -- which with two other clubs in our district makes really good profit -- and we barely broke even.  And that's after people that were part of the volunteering crew bought quite a few themselves.  This is all to say, circumstances are so different from one organization to the other that there is no "quick fix", universal solution to the same problem in two different clubs, or chapters.

Recruiting : An ongoing process PDF Print E-mail

          We all have our little tricks to attract new members.  At the last district conference, everyone exchanged ideas on what their club was successfully doing;  some were relying heavily on internet technologies, others didn't recruit at all but functioned with word of mouth, and others had an intensive recruitment week.  All the ideas were excellent -- but it occurred to me that most of us were seeing recruitment as a punctual activity we could do a few times a year and close the topic at that.  The fact is that having a new member into your organization is a little bit like having a friendship;  Relationship between prospective members in volunteer clubs and the club itself can be compared to the relationships customers have with companies.  Following the theory laid out by Zeithaml, the relationship you have with your members could evolve from complete strangers to partners. Holding your Frosh events or luring candidates with treats is then only the beginning of the story!  Let us look at the entire recruitment process from the very top.
