I'd love to hear any advice that you might have to offer to me. I'll be joining the BOD for my tiny, all volunteer humane society. I've found a couple of books with some good info but mostly geared toward larger organizations that have a physical office and at least some paid staff.

We're not doing too badly when it comes to finances - received a couple of good sized (for us) grants so we know we are doing some things right.

We need to grow our active members to continue to do all the things we hope to accomplish. We have a very good low cost spay/neuter program and are one of the only groups in the area tackling the feral cat issue and doing lots of TNR - nearly 500 this year.

But we all must wear many different hats and do several things. So if you have suggestions/best practices for recruiting new members I'd love some input. This is a rural, agricultural area with just over 15,000 people in the county.

Thanks so much.

Suggest you contact Lisa Tudor, Indyferal.org, for any good advice she can offer. She grew our feral cat organizations and even got the laws changed to allow for TNR in our city. Huge program that is now a part of a big low cost spay/neuter clinic operation.

She can point you to bigger groups that offer training and more specific help for your group. Thanks for doing what you are doing.
