Many membership organisations are experiencing reductions in member numbers. The current restrictions in university and health funding are likely to put member numbers under even greater pressure in the next few years. Even societies that have had stable figures so far are likely to experience this pressure.

This can be turned round as long as you focus on why members join, why they stay - or leave - and what they want from your organisation. Talk to me about how to assess what is happening within your charity and what steps you can take to optimise your membership numbers. I will help you to minimise lapsed memberships, recruit new members and understand what your options are for the future. I can also assess your membership database and systems to ensure optimum effectiveness.
