Attendance (or lack thereof) is always a good topic. For the number of new Ordeal members we induct each year (300 - 500) we see only a small percentage of new folks at the Lodge fellowships and banquets. I would estimate less than 10% of new members ever make it to a fellowship weekend and only a couple percent to a banquet. Lack of communication and follow-up with new members is one of the drivers of declining attendance figures. I think we need to find a better way to communicate with the newest members (who have not yet developed a deep interest in OA and have not attended chapter meetings) than simply a quarterly newsletter. We should consider driving some OA energy through the units rather than using a shotgun approach aimed at individuals that invariably misses the mark.
