Greetings to you northeasterners,

I seem to remember a while back that NEM launched a coordinatead membership drive with a fairly ambitious goal of expanding their numbers. We're considering something similar in St. Louis. Can anyone help me out with what you did, what worked, what didn't work, and how you did overall?

Hi Matt,

There is an article in a recent Coaches Committee Quarterly with some ideas about NEM's success in membership, member retention and participation. The article is an interview with Bob Seltzer, who is one of the key individuals involved with this effort. The article should be available in the "Coaching" section of this web site, and it was also reprinted in the latest NEM Newsletter, which should be available at www.swimnem.org
