“Bring them back home”
2022 Membership growth campaign from February 1 to March 31 Vice Presidents of Membership, when was the last time you contacted your past members? Did you:
- personally invite them back to your meetings?
- remind them of the many Toastmasters benefits?
- tell them how much they are being missed?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful for them to be active members again? Club VPs of Membership who succeed in bringing back one or more past members will receive a copy of one of 3 e-books of their choice for every past member that they reinstate, along with the enthusiasm award ribbon. If 5 or more members are reinstated, the VP Membership will also be added to a raffle for each re-instated past member for the chance of winning a US$100 TI gift certificate.
To claim your incentive, please email the Club Growth Director at CGD@Toastmasters60.com and the District Director at DD@toastmasters60.com with the name of the past members and the name of your club.
