ISSUE No. 82 Autumn 2007
The most important person to help build membership of FPRA
In the recent members’ survey the answer to the question “How did you first learn about the existence of FPRA?” resulted, in many instances, in comments such as “Recommendation” or “Word of mouth” or “Past director told us” or “RA member told us”.
However, these are all effectively the same thing: a member telling a potential member about the FPRA and when added to together this was the largest single source of new members. So please keep up the good work! Indeed spread the word even wider: make sure all the members of your association know you are members of FPRA and what the benefits are. Shout it loud.
We would like to draw members’ attention to the bar on the homepage, the headings on which take you to other areas of the website
