The Membership Committee is developing programs and resources for Massachusetts Subordinate Granges with the goals of promoting our Granges within our respective communities. We are concentrating our efforts within the following areas:

  • Membership Service: Identifying the needs of members and recommending the development of services to meet those needs.

  • Increasing Membership: Recommending means for increasing membership in Massachusetts Subordinate Granges.

  • Keeping Membership Informed: Working closely with the Communications Committee and other committees to make prospective and current members aware of the resources, services, and membership benefits of the Grange.

  • Welcoming New Members: Recommending ways to acknowledge new members and to encourage participation in Grange programs and activities.

  • Identifying Non-member Needs and Perceptions: Gathering information on and analyzing non-members’ needs and perceptions of the Grange. Recommending ways in which to meet these needs to attract non-members to join the Grange.
