Getting GMO members interested and involved
I am a member of a Chapter of a very long established GMO.
Over the last 2 or so years we have been running into the problem of lower and lower member participation. The same 8-9 people do everything. run the schooling shows, participate on the board etc.
We had to strong arm someone to be the President this year.
We just had our year end awards banquet.
Out of 104 members 8 people showed up, the awards secretary didn't make it either so no awards, but no-one came anyway.
We cannot get folks to run the schooling shows or organize the clinics, yet when we put out calls for the membership to tell us what they want or to come to Board meetings we get silence.
The same 8/9 people are very tired of doing it all. How do we get the membership interested and involved?
Looking for ideas here, Please give us any and all ideas that you might have and especially ones that have worked.
