    Need some good ideas to recruit new members to the board. Have had some success asking coaches for suggestions of people on their team that they thing would like to get involved and have asked others on my team.

    Re: volunteers

    We have had some good success doing one of the things Berry Stallings suggested during her presentation at convention and inviting people to volunteer for a task rather than a position (eg "work the registration table at this particular meet" or "help plan the party for after the annual meeting" rather then "volunteer as meet director" or "volunteer as social chair") - that way it's a smaller commitment (at first!) so they are more likely to say 'yes', then when they see how fun we are, they are hooked!
