    Agitation Can Be Fun!

    Thanks for your comments (both public and private) and your responses to the mini-survey at the end of my most recent blog posting.  Lots of food for thought in there.  I’ll be on the road this week at the President/Secretaries Section meeting and then moderating a Board Institute session for a member society in St. Paul, MN, where I’ll be discussing your feedback with society leaders and board members.  Look for a future blog posting with some thoughts on how we want to take all these great ideas and put them into action.  In the meantime, if you haven’t had a chance to respond to the survey, now’s the time!

    1. My background is 30 years with several commerical carierrs. I am a member of a fraternal and have worked with several fraternals to provide products that those organizations decided not to manufacture.

      I believe that fraternals provide value that no commerical company can provide.

      Joe’s analogy with “The Painted Ladies” is perfect. To even take it a step further and thinking of the challenges faced by some of the societies, I am reminded of the book, “Change or die”.

      Agiatae Part II touched on the important factors to long term growth and survival. I beleve the one most crucial factors is building a sales force which will drive membership and fund fraternal activities into the future.

      There are tremendous challenges but by following the agitate approach you find opportunities.
