The new-club team will use the information gathered during the community analysis to determine how the club can meet the needs of the community and of the members. Members will join your new club for fellowship and service, so focus on both aspects.
- Determine the type of club you’ll organize. Based on the schedule and availability of your prospect base, you may find that an alternative meeting format fits your group better than a traditional club format. Kiwanis International offers a variety of club types.
- Develop a prospect list. Spend time at a club meeting to create a list of people your members know who would benefit from membership. Be sure to include names you’ve gathered during community analysis interviews.
- Identify initial service projects. Use the case for a new club that you filled out after the community analysis. Keep in mind that the Service Leadership Programs—for youth and students and adults living with disabilities—are effective and easy to implement.
- Let the media help you get the message out. Use these tips for marketing your new club.
