How to VPM the RDG Way

Keeping members happy and helping guests become members are the main roles of the VPM. This lesson will show you how.

1. What is the VPM?

The Vice President of Membership's main goal is to maintain a minimum of 20 members in the club (with a goal of 30-35 members total). As a VPM, you should be working with your club's VP PR to get guests in the door, then helping them become members. After they become members, you want to make sure they become repeat members. This requires some sales and persuasion skills, especially being able to communicate the benefits of Toastmasters, as well as good people skills. 

Like the VP PR, they are directly responsible for the membership growth goals of the club. This requires consistent, strategic effort. This lesson will teach you some of the skills you need; ultimately it dovetails with the RDG TM Marketing course.
