Agree with Brad. One phone call should sort it all out.

The club sent out an email today to members providing an update as to some of the initiatives and steps that had been taken to reduce debt and shore up the financial stability of the club.

One of the key areas to address was to continueto grow the clubs membership base.

The target is now set at 5000 members, and the club is looking at several ways to attract new members to the club.

If the club could get somewhere in the vicinity of that kind of number in coming years then it would go a long way to securing the future of the club.... It's an ambitious target, but I'm happy that the club is setting these kind of goals.

Yeah i also thought that 5,000 was a ambitious tarket however you have to dream big to get big numbers. If your goal is 400 members then you will never get over 1000 like how they have done this year. I don't have a idea how they are going to go about it though. With funds being tight I doubt that they will advertise in major streams and if they play on public sentiment then that will be seen as, not this old tune again. I doubt all those neutrals will resign next year - ie I doubt we will get 20 memberships out of SEN radio and Sam Newman.

How do you grow it beyond what it is now ? I wonder how Ballarat did it - Digs mentioned that their membership is somewhere in the vicinity of 2.5 k.

Start by door knocking on, or flyers to those hundreds,(or are there thousands) of units on the old soap factory site. You might pick up one or two.

Be very careful with junior memberships. The main reason for the destruction of the Roosters !!

Junior parent memberships at a reduced cost incorporated in player subscriptions both netball & football.

Dont forget the North Ballarat Football Club field over 20 different teams every Saturday.

MegaA, I wouls suggest with the Fisherman's bend urban renewal project, the club considers giving every new resident in the municipality that is paying rates a complimentary or heavily discounted membership to try and get them to engage with the club.

There will be a population boom in the coming years and it is important that the club capatilises on that.  Auto-renewal of memberships should also be a given.

Charge the ratepayers a extra 70 bucks and give them a membership in return :)
