Invite a Friend to Join!
By Nancy Gerdt, Membership Committee Chair
This spring the VWC Membership Committee launched a challenge to current members to Invite a Friend to Join! We need your help!
Community involvement here in the valley is a well-known phenomenon that truly improves and enhances our lives, and the VWC provides an important way for SLV residents to contribute to the welfare of their community.
One way to stay current with issues and events is to read the quarterly Newsletter mailed to VWC members, or to check out the VWC website at www.vwcweb.org. Not only does this provide valuable insights into community activities; it allows members to look at ways to get involved. Many new members say that they’ve been looking for opportunities to give back to the community and they know that the VWC can provide that. The Newsletter and website provide numerous ideas for volunteer opportunities.
It is critical to increase Club membership in order to continue with the work we do in the community. Your ongoing membership supports the Valley Women’s Club’s work in the areas of the environment, education, scholarships for continuing education, women’s issues, disaster preparedness planning, and community connections with other local organizations.
One way to help build our organization is to invite more people into the circle. A membership can be a great way to offer a meaningful gift to a friend and we encourage you to gift a membership. Some members have given memberships to younger people as a way of encouraging the next generation to learn about the Valley’s history and to become a part of building the future, which is wonderful.
