Club Recognition Awards

2023 Ontario Council Recognition Awards

At the 2023 CFUW Ontario Council AGM, clubs will be recognized for their winning membership strategies. As well, the recipient of the Carolyn Day Award for Environmental Action will be announced.

2023 Membership Challenge

Last year many Ontario Council (OC) Clubs used several strategies to attract new and former members and successfully engaged them to be active in their clubs. We heard about such strategies and the OC Membership Committee looked to discover what has worked. We were very interested to learn of your success so the strategies and/or activities could be shared with all of the OC clubs.

We know there are many more ideas that were used this year, so the contest is back! Your Club could win $300 for Recruitment or $300 for Retention! It’s simple to enter – answer five questions for recruitment and/or five questions for retention, in 250 words or less for each category. We are looking for any strategy/activity, with a focus on the last couple of years. Download the Membership Challenge brochure here. Follow the instructions and submit your Club’s application on or before April 15, 2023.
