Membership Development involves both recruiting new members and maintaining the existing members of your club. Both of these membership categories require a targeted approach which will include a customer service focus, marketing, communication and pricing proposals. This will ensure that your club is best positioned to attract new members, engage with them to maximise the chance they will renew and make sure that your existing members become champions of the club due to the fantastic experience of being a member.
