Project Details

What We Need
  • A Membership Strategy document of 2-4 pages, including analysis of the Organization’s current membership program, step-by-step guide to a new or improved program, growth goals and creative outreach strategies
Additional Details

We offer memberships and would love to find out ways of optimizing this portion of our organization.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have A membership plan in place, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time to work with you, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This is important to our organization because it's one way we build community.
