Dear Presidents of District 308-A2,
The MD308 Convention has just concluded and all your clubs have been given awards by our District Governor. This year our District under the dynamic leadership of our District Governor Karen Koh has achieved a lot, not only in areas of services BUT in area of membership. Our District has the highest membership gain in our Multiple District and ALSO among the TOP 50 in the world.
Normally, after the Convention and getting your awards, most clubs started the so called “SPRING CLEANING”, i.e you started to drop “problem members”. As DC RETENTION, my job ends in June 2010 and may I remind all of you that your office also end in June 2010.
Our DG has put in a lot of efforts in the last 10 months plus in encouraging members to get more new members and we have achieved a fantastic result so far. HENCE, I would like to urge all of you also to target to set a record for this year to “MINIMISE YOUR SPRING CLEANING” IF NOT totally avoid this practise forever. Some, if not most of you will be holding the honour DG Nite and I strongly believe that the best way to honour our DG is to maintain a healthy membership growth for this fiscal year. One of the ways to help in retaining your members is to invite them to come for functions when the DG is around (if you are having honour DG Nite etc). Ask the DG to talk to them and give them the necessary encouragements.
Hopefully, with your dedication in refraining from dropping members AND YOUR EFFORTS TO TRY TO GET BACK THEIR PARTICIPATION, we will have a healthy growth for this fiscal year and with that, hopefully the word “SPRING CLEANING” will disappear from our Lions dictionary forever. I am sure that our DG elect will also continue from here and will strive for a positive membership growth in his year.
