Membership Committee - Annual Report

The membership portfolio has had a very unsettled year, and it was only through the efforts of many people that most of its functions were performed.

In August, the membership year began with orientation coffee for all prospective members. Sophia Ann Aoki from Life of the was invited as guest speaker to help increase the attendance of existing members.

The housekeeping functions which fall to membership were delegated to more people than usual due to the lack of a chairman for several months. These included compiling and mailing the roster, mailing information and the Voter to prospective members, assembling new member kits, and manning the talent file.

The Membership Committee attempted to meet the needs of new members in several ways. The Susie Orient column was resumed in the Voter; 5-minute mini-orientations were used quite successfully in some units, and A President's coffee for new members has been scheduled for May. A very successful large-scale go-see tour of the Legislature was substituted for last year's smaller tours.

In trying to reach the members through their units, babysitting was provided in Hawaii Kai with outstanding results, and the Evening unit again tried to split into two locations. Honolulu Evening and Windward Evening are both planning to continue on their own in the fall, and we will hope for growth.

We were able to add slightly more members this year, but this gain was offset by a larger number leaving League. The attraction of now members and the retention of existing ones, will still be the primary goals of membership.
