Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club hope to have their first Associate member within the next month. Associate membership gives a potential member the opportunity to see the club and what it does without early commitment and gives the opportunity for time to decide about becoming a full member . The ideal time limit for staying an Associate member should be 12 months but this can be extended if the candidate wants longer .
Mark Anderson made the point that promotional materials and members approaching potential members should emphasis that our club is helping charities, organises good quality speakers, visits interesting places, has good night outs, helps to avoid boredom and in particular it is about enjoying yourself and putting something back into the community.
We need to be more proactive in getting new members. Our programme is good, we should be able to attract more members.
Anyone interested in considering membership please contact the club via our Facebook or twitter page.
