What Is It?
The Spring Ahead Membership Drive is a 2017 project that will ask each Lions Club in MD19 to hold a membership event during the week prior to the start of Daylight Savings Time (Sunday, March 12, 2017).
Why should my club participate?
Almost all Lions Clubs will benefit from new members. More members equal more service. New members bring new energy, new talents, and new ideas.
Also, participating clubs have the opportunity to win some great prizes. We will send more prize information in the coming months.
So what do we do next?
1. Plan a membership event for any day during March 5 – 11, 2017. You can plan an open house, contact potential members at a community event, or walk your local businesses with membership applications.
2. Send an email to MD19 Public Relations Chairperson Kathy Crawford at katmc (at) live.com to let us know that you are going to participate. We will share the names of clubs that plan to participate.
The MD19 Membership Manual includes a complete Open House manual. This is a proven method for holding an open house. We encourage you to follow the manual and avoid taking short cuts. Here’s a link to the manual:
