Attracting New Members
 
What have we done to attract new members?  We have gone to ski and outdoor sports venues and set up displays and talked with people who might be interested in skiing and our other activities.  A few that I have participated:  Midwest Outdoor Experience and the swap meets at Valleywood, Mad River Mountain, and Perfect North.  All of that effort might have gotten us one member, if that.  The volunteers gave up a good part of their days and drove hundreds of miles for these events.  It wasn't all that successful.  Lots of lookers but no buyers. click for more

 
Highlights of the OVSC Summit
 
There were many fun times at the OVSC Summit last week, but there was also some serious business discussed.  Declining ski club membership and participation is a topic that has perplexed all ski clubs, not only in our region, but across the country.  What, if anything, can be done to reverse the trend.  Your own ski club has been discussing this issue for more than two years.  Your Board of Directors has had many suggestions about how to market ourselves (spending money and resources) to attract new members.  Personally, I've been reluctant to spend our money if there is no proven benefit.  My main task at the OVSC Summit was to sit on sessions that addressed this issue.  There was one session that Karl Winter of Winter Ski and Sports talked about it.  Sadly, while he had a lot to say, he had, (in my opinion), no new or productive ideas.  The club presidents met the following day and discussed this again,  I did gain some insight as to what other clubs have tried (and mostly failed at).  click for more
