Craig Harrison, DTM

About the Workshop: What if every member who joined your club stayed for a decade? While clubs forever chase new members, who is minding the club's back door?

Attend this session to learn why and how to pay attention to retention -- to keeping your existing member base engaged. Learn formulae for continually engaging members through various challenges, opportunities and projects -- for everyone's benefit.
