Membership Committee

People involved with membership keep records of who attends meetings, ensure availability of membership brochures at meetings and other functions, poll members about their interests, serve as 'hospitality chair' and greeter at meetings, and provide assistance for efforts to recruit new members and activists.  These activities can be handled by a single (busy) person, or they can be assigned to several different people in a Membership Committee.

For more information about joining the Prairie Group of the Sierra Club, contact Jim Beauchamp, 217-344-3307.
