What and Why

Only You Can Grow Your Club!

The future of every club is in the hands of its members. This becomes clear when you look at our strong and growing clubs. You can see the members of those clubs who are actively doing the work that needs done. Getting members to be active workers begins with them sharing why the work is important and how to do that work. 
People need to believe in what they are doing. They also need to know what and how to focus their efforts to get the best results. It is the same for long-term members, new members and all those folks who could and should be part of your club’s work.

The Club Development Workshops will help you rediscover and define the why of your work. It will help you identify the best ways to share your why so you can recruit others who feel the same. You will leave with a plan of work so you can make the most of people’s time and money. 

Been There Done That

You went to a previous CDW and because your club is now growing, you see no need to participate. If you are growing, consider coming to share your why and how. There is no “one-size” fits all, but we can all learn and be inspired by the experience of others. If your club is not growing, maybe then maybe you should come back with a team so you have more help in the coming year.

How

You Build It and We Will Come

The value of the CDW begins with the work and commitment you and your club makes to attend, as well as what happens after the event. Sertoma will bring the CDW to an area based on the commitment of the members to participate. So members, begin the work with your club leaders and the other clubs in the defined areas to make sure you all have access to a CDW.

Selecting Cities/Facilities: 

Sertoma has suggested 10 host cities that are centers for groups of 10 to 20 clubs within 120 miles. In addition, two Region Meetings (Great Plains and Mountain West) will host a CDW in the fall of 2017. 

Sertoma will work with local club leaders, Governors and Directors to identify appropriate and cost effective locations to host the CDW in the host city.

Reserving Dates:

Clubs in each area will determine the best date for their CDW. Clubs can schedule CDWs in January, March, April, or May of 2018. Dates will be reserved on a first request basis. Depending on the availability of trainers, we could do two reservations on the same date.

Confirming the CDW 

Once the date is reserved, the work to commit to the CDW begins. Sertoma will provide the training when an average/minimum number of members (40) and clubs (10) register for the CDW. To allow time for travel and logistic planning that number of registrations is needed 30 days before the date of the CDW. 

Sertoma will provide the online registration service for the CDWs. 

Cost 

Sertoma will provide the trainers and program. The cost for the facilities, food, and beverage will be provided by the registration costs. Based on last years’ experience these expenses will average $30 to $50 per attendee. 

This will depend on how many attend, as well as the types of facilities utilized in each city. Support of local members can help hold these costs to a minimum, but a good outcome is what we expect when our members are committed to the work that needs done. What does not matter, is whether the work is in the local community or within the greater Sertoma community.
