CLYC Junior Membership Survey
Did you know that nearly 80% of CLYC members are over 50? The CLYC has been a busy, happy place for many years, but it’s clear that our future vitality depends on the energy that younger members will bring. We need more junior members! Our committee has been charged with finding ways to increase the levels of Junior Membership for the long-term health of the club. To do this, we need to understand the reasons why young adults may want to join the CLYC or alternatively why they don’t. Your feedback is CRUCIAL to help us suggest changes for membership opportunities. Please take 10-15 minutes to respond to this important survey.

Your responses are confidential; no names or other identifying information will be retained in the database.

Please comment on any or all the ideas for encouraging junior memberships that we've brainstormed so far. [Note -- these are not at a proposal stage; we just want feedback]. Currently, the CLYC already offers an “absentee retaining fee” for supporting members of “fifty percent of the annual fee otherwise payable”. What do you think about a different absentee policy? Such as?
