Reminder that councils are asked to refrain from finalizing any suspensions from January thru June. This is the time of year to activate your retention committee to make personal contact with your members to keep them engaged. If you haven’t already done so implement the power of 10 council structure.
Councils need to be about relationships – building a Band of Brothers. Using a modified power of 10 approach is working in many councils to keep members connected and engaged. Councils are encouraged to engage existing members in small teams with an active leader who employs a 90 day touch rule – each member is contacted 4 times per year – birthday, anniversary as well as opportunities to get involved with a charitable event. (Thank you DD Burton Rausch for this suggestion).
