NFC: Re: NFC ....any help out there ?RR's rant


I feel for you, for sure. I've been head of volunteer organizations before
and in fact work as a staff member for a large volunteer organization, so I
know how much pain and frustration you're probably feeling. I feel your
pain, dude. ;)

In any given organization, it's generally the case that 10 percent of the
members will be active at any given time, with about 5 percent active on an
ongoing and consistent basis. If the NFC's numbers are better than this,
then you're doing pretty good.

Knowing that you're only gonna get 10 percent of your members off their
butts at any given time means that you need a large membership base from
which to draw volunteers. Fewer members means fewer volunteers.
