Membership

The Admission Committee, used correctly, ensures that applicants understand the Order and that the council understands what the candidate expects from his membership. This mutual understanding makes for a more thorough recruitment process and is the first step to membership retention.

Objective:

To strengthen council fraternalism by improving admission and retention of new members.

Description:

If you find your membership quotas being met year after year but the attendance to your meetings and functions remaining stagnant, the problem may not have anything to do with the programs. Many councils lament that their meeting attendance keeps going down although they keep recruiting. The answer lies not in how many they are recruiting but who they are recruiting. Most councils never get beyond the point of seeing the signature on the Form 100 before they are already setting up a 1st Degree for the candidate.
