Growing the Organization.
The primary focus of the Grange is not recruitment, yet
an organization that does not have a sustaining membership
will soon find itself in trouble.
The Membership Committee assists Community Granges by providing resources and training on member recruitment. At the State Convention, they recognize those Granges which had the largest membership gains at the Membership Luncheon and also provide Grange pins, shirts and accessories for sale to members at the Convention to show their love of the Grange.

Please see the resources listed at bottom of page for membership brochures and some examples of brochures Granges have made for themselves.
All Granges that have a 15% of greater annual gain are eligible for an indoor/outdoor flag drawing at the Membership Lunchoen.
