Adopt-A-Club Program

The purpose of this program is to strengthen low member clubs in situations that require more than a simple club coach. This also gives additional leadership opportunities for club members participating in the Adopt-A-Club Program. The District will benefit by increased member and club retention, and raise the number of distinguished clubs in the District.

How it works

Strong clubs with 20 or more members adopt a low member club in the area and become responsible for that club’s well being. Clubs who participate assign a member to lead the program as a High Performance Leadership project. The HPL leader should recruit other club members to become the action, or “rescue”, team and assist the HPL leader in working with the adopted club. The HPL leader should appoint one or two experienced members to be designated as the official Club Coach on approval of the Club Growth Director and the District Director.

Once approved, the HPL leader, coaches, and rescue team begin working with the adopted club to set up a plan for the club to become a distinguished club with 20 or more members. The adopting club shall be fully responsible for the success of the adopted club. The rescue team should begin by conducting a Moments of Truth exercise with the adopted club and follow up with a report and action plan to restore the club to its distinguished status. The rescue team shall make periodic reports back to their club to report on progress and receive suggestions for improving or adjusting the plan going forward. The club coaches shall also make reports back to the Adopt-A-Club District Chairperson or the Club Growth Director. The project ends when the adopted club achieves its distinguished goals.

Clubs that have succeeded in the Adopt-A-Club Program shall be recognized and receive a special plaque to be presented at the next District Conference. The HPL leader and members of the rescue team may also receive special awards presented by the Club Growth Director. The club coaches shall also receive Advanced Leader credit as a successful club coach.

Requirements

Clubs participating in the Adopt-A-Club program must be distinguished clubs with 20 or more members. Acceptance of the program must be approved by a majority vote of its members. The designated club coaches must be approved by the Club Growth Director or the District Director. Clubs that are adopted shall be clubs with 12 or less members at the time of adoption and assignment of the club coaches. The officers of the adopted club must agree to be adopted and be willing to work with the rescue team.
