Ask the RRIMC: How Small is Too Small?

Q. Our district now has two clubs that have membership of 9. We are working with these clubs to grow this membership. Is there any official RI policy regarding if a club’s membership declines to a certain number? Both of these clubs were formed three years ago with the minimum required membership of 20 and both had sponsor clubs.

A. There is no RI "minimum number" that causes a club to cease to exist, except for zero. However, there are a number of small club membership incentive programs trying to get clubs to reach goals above 20 members. That is defined by RI as an indicator of a "struggling" club.
