JOHNSON CITY SENIOR MEMBERSHIP PLANS
At the most recent annual board meeting, I outlined the plans that I am proposing for updating the membership application, collecting data and marketing the center to more community residents.
This is synopsis of that report:
Why membership JCSC is not a Broome County agency, but it is a 501C3 non for profit center fully dependent for all operational costs, insurances, building repairs, equipment costs and utility bills.
Registration Data The card reader machine collects important information for grants, reports and volunteer hours. The program, called Access, stores member personal information including dates of payment. marketing the JCSC With assistance from the BU students, a new brochure, membership application and yearly donation letter were developed to be used for membership recruitment. Increased PR material helps get the announcements out in the community more.
The Annual Appeal for Charitable Giving letter will be sent out in late Spring discontinuing the former Sustaining membership drive. In this way, there will be less confusion about the yearly membership dues of $30. Yearly renewals will be cyclical and reminder post cards will assist members to know when to renew each year.
Future possibilities include linking the johnsoncityseniorcenter.org website with registration or trips, classes or membership. Gifts from estates, charitable trusts, insurance policies, stocks, bonds transfers or donating to the Endowment are appreciated also.
