High Touch: Keeping Connected to Your Society Members

As a society, do you spend a lot of time and effort trying to recruit new members?  Have you given any thought to your current members? 

Join guest Pam Treme, Editor of Florida Lines, the newsletter of the Florida State Genealogical Society, as she provides hints on how to keep in touch with your current society members the way(s) they need to be contacted so they don't feel forgotten.

Some older members may not have (or may not be comfortable with) current technology and prefer to be contacted by phone or by "snail mail."  On the other hand, if you have younger members, they may prefer to get their news from a Facebook page or website.  Other members may prefer text messages.

And how about that time before, during, and after your meetings?  Are you connecting with your members as much as you are with potential members?  What about your out-of-town members?  Are you making sure they're kept in the loop?

Listen to the archived broadcast of "High Touch: Keeping Connected to Your Society Members" on the blogtalkradio My Society channel by FGS, or you can listen below:
