Getting members out to Chapter (Meeting)
I'm sure this has been posted before, but I can't handle going through pages of search when I type in meeting or chapter as it shows up so often on this site.
I recently became an alumnus of my chapter, and they have come to me with numerous problems this year. I was president last year, and all of the sudden there are divides and some apathy that was not there last year...
Largest problem is attendance at Chapter Meeting. We have an issue, 20 guys of 70 showing up to meeting is unacceptable... Our quorum for voting used to be 2/3, but last year we changed that to 51% for everyday motions and 2/3 for bylaw type motions... I had a feeling this would lower our attendance further, but not even I could have thought it would go down to under 1/3.
We don't use online billing and thus fines can be a bit difficult. What are some other(and maybe more constructive) ways to get brothers/sisters out to meeting. Last year if we reached quorum the chapter would buy a round of wings after meeting at a local place near our chapter house, was a cheap solution and it seemed to work....
