Hi friends,

Another month has come and gone, with spring just around the corner. That means opportunities for outdoors service projects!

About half of the club has filled out our membership survey, and service projects are currently ranking as the favorite reason to attend meetings. If you haven’t filled out the survey, please take a moment to do so now: We’ll use your insights to improve club meeting agendas, events, and more.

Another trend we’re seeing in the survey is that everyone is busy—something we already knew! Since that is the case, I’d like us to focus this spring on quality over quantity. By that I mean, I suggest we don’t take on anything new until we get a better handle the current commitments we’ve made as a club: Can/bottle collections, Polio Plus and Foundation fundraising, and one service project a month.

Looking forward to sharing the full survey results and action plan when everyone has completed it. Thank you for all that you do!
