Wow I can't believe I have been on staff for five months already! Time is really flying. I'm an optimist, and because of that I have a desire to work with locals with low membership levels. In conversations with a lot of leadership I have found they have gotten so caught up in the act of putting out fires that they haven't had a chance to think about goals for their association. It's hard for people to want to be a part of something that they can't clearly see the vision of. In these locals with very low membership, people feel like they've already exhausted all their possibilities, like they've tried everything already. In areas where people feel like this, we are throwing out a wide net in the hopes of catching a small spark. Does this feel like your local? Let's talk about it.
