One of the most effective ways to foster new supporters is by members hosting house parties.
All you need to do is:
♦ Choose an event date that works for you and Friends of the Clearwater.
♦ Create a list of invitees that includes your friends and neighbors.
♦ Give a short pitch as to why your friends should join Friends of the Clearwater.
Friends of the Clearwater will:
♦ Send out an invitation to your guest list and keep track of the RSVPs.
♦ Staff, or a guest speaker, will give a short update on Friends of the Clearwater and the current issues.
Here’s a great example. One of our long-time members Ron Marquart hosted twenty friends in his home. He created a slideshow of his most recent trek into the Meadow Creek Roadless Area on the Nez Perce National Forest. He accompanied his high-quality photos with a wonderful, entertaining talk about survival skills in the backcountry.
