Starting a new branch, or restarting an old one?

By Marybeth Gardam

Starting a new branch, or restarting an old one can be challenging. There is a new PowerPoint and handouts available to help you figure it out.

As part of the WILPF 101 Workshop at the WILPF US 33rdTriennial Congress in Chicago, a presentation about outreach, recruiting and STARTING(OVER) was well received.  The attendees liked it so much they suggested it could be made into a presentation for branches struggling to add new members or for organizing to start new branches. 

The presentation has been turned into a PowerPoint that branch leaders could view, or that could provide food for thought at a program/business meeting for your branch. It’s got lots of good ideas and might be useful for turning things around at branches that have found it hard to focus on recruiting.
