How do, My branch of the RA, like many others, is really struggling for members. We currently attract about 10 people to our bi monthly meetings (they used to be monthly, but lack of funds meant we couldn't afford the room every month). One of the members has set up a twitter account @MedwayRefs, and I have volunteered to pick up the cost for registering a domain name, and the first years hosting for a website. As I believe that these days we need a social media/internet presence to get people involved. But, we'd obviously like to attract more members to turn up for meetings. A couple of ideas I've had are, on the website: 1. Have monthly competitions on the laws of the game, maybe with some cheap prizes etc 2. Regular online discussions on the laws, match incidents, Kent FA and local league news etc. I believe the if we can attract say 100 new online visitors then we may be able to convert 50% to RA members, and maybe 10% of those we may be able to entice to meetings. The branch is short of funds, so we can't currently afford educational sessions with guest speakers at the moment, so, how do the more successful branches out there attract new members, and more importantly, keep them coming back?
