Description

Everyone is welcome to join us at this relaxed and informal session which will offer an opportunity to meet members of other local community businesses, exchange ideas and network.

We know how vital members are to the success of every community business and how essential it is to keep members active, up to date and engaged so, during this informal session, we will explore the topic of membership strategy together; with plenty of time to discuss key ideas and learn from one another. We'll share top tips on keeping your members engaged, ideas on how to keep your membership strategy up to date and consider the role of members in ensuring the long term sustainability of your community business.

The team at Ropley Courtyard Shop have kindly offered to host the session which gives us a fantastic chance to hear their story. Their community business has been thriving for over a decade and this get together will showcase their shop and post office. Members of the team and committe will also be on hand to answer questions and for you to swap hints and tips with.

The event is FREE and is open to all community co-operative models; whether you're a shop, pub, woodland or any other co-operative enterprise you'll receive a warm welcome.
