The purpose of the GFWC/CFWC  Membership Program is to recruit, retain and educate current members, as well as building new clubs where they are needed.

 

ACTION PLAN - Recruitment:

  • Urge your Club/District Membership Chairmen to establish a membership committee.
  • Set reasonable goals and include every member in achieving them.
  • “ACT in OCT” – follow the GFWC guidelines in the GFWC Club Manual.  It’s “4 more in October ’04” and “5 to Thrive in October ‘05”   Clubs achieving these goals will be recognized in the GFClubwoman Magazine.
  • Develop an orientation program for potential members, and use it often!
  • JUST ASK someone to join your club!!

ACTION PLAN - Retention:

  • Use the printed resources available from GFWC Club Manual and CFWC  Procedure Book,  electronic  resources at gfwc.org and cfwc.org  AND in person.  Your Membership Team is eager and willing to work with any club or district.  Just ask them!
  • Recognize members with 50 years of service by presenting them with a GFWC Gold Card.  Allow a minimum of 60 days for processing. 
  • Use the Member Transfer Form when a member moves to another area.
  • Take advantage of the FREE Subscription to “MEMBERSHIP MATTERS” from GFWC, limited to one per club
  • Continuing orientation and education is essential.   “The more they know – the more you’ll grow!” Use the GFWC Video “GFWC – Now More Than Ever”,  share all GFWC/CFWC/District and Club historical information,  highlight achievements  and programs,  use the “Benefits of Belonging” and “Know Your Organizations” sections from the GFWC Club Manual, explain your club/district procedures and customs.
  • Mentor your new members to put them at ease and to get them more involved from the beginning.
  • Celebrate Federation Day on April 24th
  • Nominate one of your members for “The JENNIE”. Details and nomination forms in the GFWC Club Manual
  • Recognize your members for membership anniversaries.  Certificates available from the CFWC Second Vice President.
  • Live by “The Collect”.  Treat your members with warmth, sincerity, and generosity.
  • “Strike Up a Friendship  Participate in the CFWC Sister Club program.  Contact a club outside your membership area to exchange newsletters, membership ideas, etc.  Contact your Area Vice President with the name of your club,  the name of your Sister Club, and the name/address/phone number of a contact person in both clubs.

ACTION PLAN – Rebuilding GFWC/CFWC:

  • Focus on New Club Building in communities without a federated club. 
  • Establish a New Club Building Team. 
  • Order “How To Build New Clubs” from GFWC Materials Center, use it!
  • Refer names of potential members in communities without clubs to any of the Membership Team
  • Contact formerly federated clubs and members.  They may consider re-joining when they are brought up to date on current Federation activities.

ACTION PLAN – The Future:

  • Juniorettes are young people of middle school and high school age with an interest in community service.  Any active General club may sponsor a GFWC Juniorette Club.
  • Use the New Juniorette Handbook available from GFWC
  • Encourage Juniorette participation in district/state/region meetings
