Do you ever complain that your members just don’t participate?
How do you know for sure?
Too often, we just guess. Now, the AAUW California Communications Committee has answered Membership’s call to develop an easy-to-use tool that will track how active your members are in your branch activities. It’s a simple spreadsheet that you can customize and use to count attendance at all your branch meetings, Interest Groups, fundraisers, etc. which will give you a true measure of your members’ overall engagement.
Why would this be helpful?
- Understand not just how MANY members you have, but how ACTIVE they are. Active members are what you need. They are loyal, contribute time and money, are more likely to renew, and will recommend AAUW to others.
- See which individual members are most and least active and reach out accordingly.
- Use the tracking sheet to set measurable goals for next year. “We want to improve participation by X%!”
- See which branch activities are most valued by your members and use it for next year’s planning.
It will be easy to get started with the Participation Tracking Form and easy to maintain.
