Membership Zoom meeting – the way forward.

Membership Zoom meeting – the way forward.

On Wednesday 30 March 2022 there will be an on-line meeting of Circle Membership Officers for Province 6.
I will send an agenda and zoom link a little nearer the date but we will be discussing the way forward for our Province, the membership data from Head Office, ways in which the Province can support your Circle and looking at the recent marketing and membership successes of Circles and also the challenges some Circles face.
I am really encouraged by the number of visiting gentlemen emerging at many of our Circles in the last 4 or 5 months and truly believe that if we have a solid plan to recruit and retain we will increase our numbers.
There are no Circles are meeting on that evening and hopefully with the notice I am giving, all Circle Membership Officers will be able to join. It is really important that all Circles contribute so if you cannot make it please let me know and/or find another brother in the Circle who can join the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you all (virtually) on 30 March.

Three In A Row

Sutton Coldfield Circle’s October meeting witnessed a unique event when three brothers — Peter Blackburn, Jim Phillips and Geoff Dorrett (now of Windsor Circle) — were presented with 40 year scrolls by Brother Provincial President Jim Gillen of Stoke-on-Trent Circle. The event was unique as all three brothers joined Sutton Coldfield Circle on the same evening in September 1981. All three brothers have given outstanding service over the years in such offices as President, Secretary, Treasurer and Welfare Officer. The October meeting was also a circle race night when brothers, visitors and friends were able to become winners and, unfortunately, losers. However, £700 was raised for Brother President Peter Westbrook’s charity – Macmillan Cancer Support.
