When you have delivery of services or goods, you expect a 100% perfect experience from start to finish, right? Well this year we are going to exceed that and set an expectation for 100%+ for our membership delivery service! Retention of our current members is a super important piece to our National Auxiliary puzzle this year. Have you ever lost a piece to a 469,322-piece puzzle? All that work to be missing one piece… So frustrating!! This is what is happening in our organization. This year we will be delivering and ensuring all pieces are in our puzzle.
“The Subscription”: Life Members!! Woo-Hoo. Thanks for subscribing to the best subscription you could ever have!!
“The Prime”: These are your 2 Day Prime Delivery members. These are the members that pay on time every time. We appreciate that, so why not give them a little appreciation for always being part of “The Prime” Membership. Offer a little something to your members who are Prime Delivery members and for those that “upgrade” to Prime this year.
“The UPS Ground”: The delivery of these members may take a little longer. Sometimes you may even have to put a missed delivery tag (dues reminders) at their door.
“The USPS Sure Post Delivery”: This is the delivery of members that may need a more personal way of delivery, one that comes almost every day is a reminder. This doesn’t have to be a reminder of just dues specifically. A reminder of events and happenings might be all the delivery service they need.
Push our Annual Members and New Members to Upgrade their delivery to a Subscription. Let’s work on guaranteed retention of our members by subscribing them to a Life Membership:
**Please note if using the payment plan, this is something your Local Auxiliary must have in place, this is not a Department program. Remember if life is not paid by the dues due date to stay current, you may still owe the annual fees until your life membership is paid off, please work with your Local Auxiliary for this option.**
Using the Membership Recruitment and Retention Tools and resources provided by National are there to assist you. USE THEM! You can find them under the Membership Program at https://vfwauxiliary.org/resources/ this can also be accessed through Malta.
