The theme at the Regional Zone 33 – 34 Membership Seminar in Evanston is to encourage Districts to develop and execute District Membership Strategic Plans designed to inspire, encourage, and equip clubs to set long term membership development goals (three to five years) with short term benchmarks. (Our short term benchmark is a 10% net membership gain in 2008-09.)
At our Regional Seminar, we are going to allot time for districts to outline District Membership Strategic Plans, exchange ideas, and advise what support from RRIMCs and RI will be needed in order to more efficiently execute their plan.
To make efficient use of the time, some advance preparation is necessary. Please complete the Strategic Planning Questionnaire (full link below) prior to the Regional Membership Seminar and turn it in when your register on June 3, 2008. We would prefer not to have any identifying names or wording on the questionnaire you turn in. We will tabulate the responses and make them available Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning of the Seminar.
You may find it beneficial to ask your Districts incoming leaders and other interested District leaders to complete the questionnaire and return them to you. Bring all with you to the Regional Seminar for tabulation. They will be returned.
If you are not attending the Regional Membership Seminar but want to participate with the questionnaire, please complete it and return it in pdf or jpg format electronically to Jim Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail it to:
255 Suntan Avenue
We will post the survey results on our BLOG so you can compare your response.
