Thanks for your work to try and bring back the members that have left. I think that will be a hard fight, but it can be done.
Any plan that we have will have to focus on bringing those people and clubs back to the association. But we also need new members to help increase the cash flow of the association.
Is there a specific reason why the rest of the BOD does not want to bring the BOD meeting to the South District area? I could see the cost of having to rent a meeting room as one, but really small compared to the possible outcome.
I think convention will be interesting this year. We will be there as we are planning on it this year. We missed the last one, as I had to work, and had other things planned just after that.
How do we bring more business memberships to the association? They can help with more than just bringing money, but their customer base that we need to leverage as part of their membership with the association. An example is 4Wheel Parts, and they have a monthly magazine. Do we see our logo in their magazine? I would ask why not. Maybe pass them some articles that we have run in the In Gear and then take stuff from them for the In Gear also.
If you would like to see the marketing plan, get me your email address. The link of the web page is form based, and I do not think I can attach anything to it.
