Tonight’s meeting was a Club Assembly, with Terry Brewer presenting the results of the recent member survey he conducted.
Terry noted that 25 people responded, which is more than 50% of our total membership list and a solid number to statistically present a cross-section of opinions.
He presented responses grouped into categories:
• Membership background and interests
• Membership and meetings
Membership projects and participation
• Club leadership and new members
• General comments on increasing membership, participation and engagement
The presentation was followed by a general discussion.
