"Why They Join - Why They Stay - Why They Leave" workshop emphasizes the need to understand the importance of both membership retention and membership recruitment as a key foundation for a congregation's long term success.

This workshop is designed to help both the Board and the Professional Staff understand the diverse needs of a congregation's members. Simple and low cost steps can be implemented to respond to the diverse needs of your members as a reflection of your mission and vision statement. The session concludes with a clear action plan for moving forward and implementing new approaches to membership services.

" My board of trustees thoroughly enjoyed our session with Steve. In just a few short hours Steve provided us with the tools to understand the different ways in which our members relate to our congregation and how membership engagement is the key to membership retention. Steve also helped us identify creative ways to engage our members in a deeper relationship with the congregation so that they move from being Jewish consumers looking to "get their child bar mitzvah-ed" to lifelong partners in a synagogue community. "
