This morning I was at the meeting of one of the service clubs I belong to and, as usual, there was the common complaint that young people just aren’t joining and that membership is down. This made we wonder - are service clubs passé?
It used to be that being invited to belong to a service club like Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions and so many more was a true social feather in one’s cap. Furthermore being on the committee at a Chamber of Commerce or volunteering to help with community-focused functions was a mark of a true forward-minded community member. The Elks dotted the land with their halls and so many clubs did so much for the community.
Last week I wrote about joining the local Chamber of Commerce and why you should do that. I got a number of emails from folks saying they had been to mixers and it didn’t help at all. So here are my six rules for maximizing how going to chamber mixers will help your bottom line.
