Good News and Bad News!
As we head into 2020, the club has much to be proud of. Over the past year, we have implemented our new website without encountering any major problems, the club’s finances are in excellent shape and we have continued to organise a large number of events right across England, Wales and Scotland, as well as a small number of trips abroad. We are indebted to all the volunteers who made this possible.
However, the major challenge still remains. Unfortunately, the club’s membership has continued to fall. Although around 200 people joined the club in the past year, since the beginning of March 2019, over 300 existing members failed to renew their subscription when it became due. This is alarmingly high. It is clear that in order to secure the club’s long term future, we need to become much better at retaining our existing members. The big question is how! We need to devise a concerted programme of action, and we need everyone to be involved. If you have any suggestions as to what we can do to reduce the number of members who simply drift away, I would love to hear from you. You can email me at [email protected] .
