CMC Boulder Group Council Chair’s Report


Roger Drake, Boulder Council Chair
While this winter was short on snow, we’re certainly having a lovely spring. I hope that all of you have been able to take advantage of it and enjoy the outdoors.

As chair, my biggest overall goal for this year is increasing our membership – attracting new members and retaining our current members. As our membership grows, so do the number of trip leaders and consequently the number and variety of outings and other events we can offer.

Fortunately, there are actions we can all take to promote the CMC as a whole and the Boulder Group in particular. I’ve been putting together a list of things each of us can do which don’t cost anything.  I hope you’ll find ideas which you like, below, and/or will come up with your own ideas.

So, here they are:
1. Put a CMC bumper sticker on your car. We all receive these in our renewal package.
2. Put a bumper sticker on your helmet – I cut mine down to fit my helmet.
3. Put your bumper sticker on a water bottle or coffee mug. (We have some extra bumper stickers in the clubroom
4. Write an on-line review of a CMC press book.
5. Invite friends or co-workers on a CMC outing – use your guest passes from your renewal package.
6. Feature the CMC logo in your on-line e-mail signature.
7. Make online postings about your CMC experiences to your social media pages.
8. Use social media to promote the CMC (Facebook, Yelp!, Twitter)
9. Post to the CMC Facebook page.
10. Put out/post CMC brochures at your workplace, if appropriate.
11. Write articles promoting the CMC: these could be in work publications, newsletters for various organizations, as well as local newspapers.
12. Submit articles to the Compass about your experiences

I hope this list will stimulate your own creativity and lead you to think of other ideas which you are comfortable with.

Happy Spring to all of you. I hope that you are all able to take advantage of this very special place which we are fortunate enough to call home.
