It's Membership Month, and we're sure your club is outlining new strategies for the year for membership development. As you begin to welcome new members, do you have a set onboarding process? How does your club determine which member welcomes the newest addition to your club and who shows them the ropes?
Did you know that the built-in New Member Program lets you assign orientation activities to existing members in order to welcome new members?
A personal touch goes a
long way compared to a booklet or an email briefing new members what they need to
know. Rotary allows everyone that shares the same passion to do good for the community to come together, network and be part of something great. As such, we need to always try to make our new members feel welcome and part of the club. The best way to do that? Have existing members brief them on everything they need to know about the club! This allows them to get to know everyone on a personal level and get involved from the very beginning.
How do I add a new member activity?
1) Select the newest member
2) Create a list of all your orientation activities (example: Meet & Greet, introduce new member to all club members).
2) Assign each activity to an existing member of your club
Members see these commitments under their Commitments tab on their profile as well part of every newsletter, should you include the commitments section.
