This is part two of “How Big Is Too Big?”
The essence of a successful chapter is creating more referrals and passing more business for members. The more members you have in your group, the more referrals you can pass, the more one-to-ones you can have, and the more energy there is in the group.
Larger chapters still have growth goals. Keep inviting visitors. You have to consider attrition. And if a prospective member applies for a position that’s not available, you can forward the application to the region and make sure the person is placed. (Listen to Episode 308: 3 + 1 = Member Success and read Dr. Misner’s SuccessNet article on this subject.) Visitors bring in money.
Remind concerned members why they should welcome growth and make the larger chapter a success. A shorter commercial can get you more business if more people hear it–as long as you create a good one.
As long s you maintain an abundance mentality and welcome visitors even if they are members of your profession, your referrals will grow exponentially.
