What Makes Your
by Jane Gutierrez
Vice President - Membership, FWSA
One of the topics that I'm frequently asked about is recruiting and retaining members.
Many clubs and organizations are shrinking, and there is no sure answer to fix this issue. I
have spoken with clubs that seem to use some techniques that have worked for them, and I
hope that these suggestions will help you.
Coordinate Alpine skiing trips at local hills - can be day trips or weekend trips
Have a ski swap/sale
Fall and spring social events
Organized outings such as wine tasting, concerts, etc.
Ski trips with instructional training provided
Supporting local youth race teams
Engaging/partnering with other ski clubs during events
Family friendly events and community outreach
Community partnerships with high school and college ski clubs
(works well with peer connections)
Expanding membership beyond your city
Maintain goal of affordability of events for members
Benefits that your members like such as discount lift tickets
Current and interactive website and social media posts
(of special interest to millennials)
Annual strategic planning to examine what is working for your organization,
and what is not
Let Far West Ski Association help you with some of your efforts. We offer fantastic trips
and discounts on hotels, clothing, lift tickets, rental car discounts and more for your members
through our Membership Card. We can recruit a new member and direct them to your club.
Individual members can also remain as a direct member with FWSA for a nominal fee and
travel with your club. Through membership in your club, individuals can have access to all
that FWSA has to offer: recreational racing, legislative, safety, and resort information, leadership
and educational classes, and our fun filled Annual Convention!
To join as an individual member, fill out the membership form on the top left of this page
and attach with payment, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Also check
