NEWS

This area contains all of the news articles from the Prime Timers Worldwide quarterly newsletter.  They are listed in chronological order, with the most recent news article listed first.  Feel free to peruse this article archive; it is chock full of interesting stories from local chapters, the worldwide organization as a whole, and important news to its members.

Some of you may know me already as your Chapter Advocate representing you on the Prime Timers Worldwide Board of Directors, others I have met at the Prime Timers Worldwide Convention in Chicago last October, but I now want to address to all the Chapters.

As we review the Chapter Surveys we received from your Chapter Advocate, it seems the most consistent problem the chapters have is acquiring new members, acquiring volunteers and increasing numbers at events. Today, I wish to address acquiring new members. We have a few ideas that have worked quite well and will share them with you.

This year, I celebrate my 15th year on the Board of Prime Timers Worldwide. It is the first time in two years that I am not in the position of being one of the officers on the board. I love it! I can now stretch and sit back and observe from a safe distance all there is to see. What I see is a clear picture of how we operate as an organization and what it is we still need to do to continue to grow.

What do you do on the Worldwide Board? That is a frequent question posed as I'm explaining the makeup of the Prime Timers Worldwide Board to someone learning more about our organization. A short answer is, "you can read the minutes of our meetings on the Worldwide website." That would be factually correct but less helpful than providing a direct response to the question. The other short answer is "a lot!"
