MGR Task Group

Our Membership Growth & Retention (MGR) Task Group is a group of volunteers working together to promote Growth and Retention. The way the group works is simple:

  • The group meets generally three times a year to plot, although while we are meeting virtually it has been more frequent.
  • The group has members from a range of volunteer roles as well as members from different areas of the county geographically
  • The group works with the MGR Plan which is devised each November at the SWE Region MGR conference and runs for the duration of the year
  • The group also has scope to come up with their own ideas to add to the plan and members are always on the lookout for bright ideas and new ways to spread the word about how great Guiding is
  • Members are asked to commit to the group for just one year initially, with the option to extend by a further year at the end of each year's commitment if they wish
  • At the meetings, the group discusses the MGR actions within the plan and each person agrees to take on a small task based on their availability and their own skills

Get involved - We are always on the lookout for new members of our MGR Task Group. If you would like to know more or would like to get involved then get in touch.
