Give Everyone a Job, Especially Newer Members

Let them serve! Consider Smaller Jobs.

Members should feel like they are needed and wanted. The best way to do this is have members participate, be involved in specific valuable actions, particularly in an area of interest to the member.

Participation does not have to involve an extensive commitment. It can involve small but important jobs. Each President should establish their own priorities. Be creative!
