I should’ve seen it coming. For six years I’ve been in school-based LGBTQA organizations, and it always, always happens at this time of year. That’s right, the second semester slump.
I’ve always taken it upon myself to work through it, get members back. But for some reason it’s just a dead zone for clubs. OPEN meetings have halved. Participation is a fraction of what it was. We still have the same number of events, but the enthusiasm isn’t there.
Does anyone have any suggestions for exciting and encouraging membership at this time of year? We have had some seriously great events, to no avail. Maybe I should just take a step back for a few weeks, and let people catch up their work. That’ll be a tough one.
