On Saturday 29th February the Province held a Marketing & Membership workshop at Lea Marston Hotel. Circle marketing and membership officers were invited to attend and the response was brilliant! All 22 Circles in the Province were represented with 43 brothers in attendance. They were treated to some very inspirational speakers on subjects such as Marketing, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Strategy and Membership statistics & retention. Brother Ed Murphy from Hastings-Bexhill Circle travelled up from Sussex to talk about marketing our Circles in a positive way that brings the message to Catholic men in our parishes. Brothers Raymundo (Stafford) Tom Brassil (North Warks) and Bernard Baxter and Ciaran Convey (both Kenilworth) also gave very interesting perspectives on the use of social media, statistics and retention. More information will be available in the summer edition of Newslink.
All Circles should now have received their invitation to the above workshop to be held on Saturday 29th February. The session will commence at 10.30 and will finish at 2.30pm. Membership is THE most pressing topic for all Circles and we hope that all Circle Membership and Marketing Officers will be able to attend. Please do make sure your Circle is represented if the Marketing and Membership officers are unable to make this date. Topics covered will be:
How to effectively market your Circle
Social media including the use of Whatsapp
Writing a Circle marketing strategy
The workshop will be held at Lea Marston Hotel near Kingsbury B76 0BY.
Calling all Circle Membership and Marketing Officers………

Stoke on Trent Circle enrolled new brother Stephen Thomas at their May Circle meeting last night (21 May 2019). Newly installed President Anthony Birks (on the left) was delighted to enroll a new member on his first night as president.
Membership Officer Barry Tunnicliffe is hopeful that initiatives being undertaken in local parishes will bear fruit with more new brothers joining in the near future.
The enrollment of Stephen Thomas follows 3 other new brothers joining Circles in the province which is an encouraging start to the year. If any Membership Officers would like support in attracting new members for their Circle then please contact David Prescott on 07702 605611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
