Membership Occupational Classification as of May 2016 breakdown is as follows:
A review session on membership strategy was held on 30 May 2015. We are very thankful of the support from Lilian Lau, Betty Fu, Yvonne Chua, Winnie Wong, Jackie Ma and Patricia Yeung to explore in details the best option going forward. We explored:
1. What would be the ideal number of memberships for our club?
2. What membership profiles should be targeted?
3. Which occupation classifications should we target?
4. How does that align with ZI and District 17 goals?
Membership growth is the Zonta International and District 17 goal. We concluded occupations in financial services, Government civil service, medical and social services should be the Club’s membership recruitment focus. Younger members should be recruited for succession planning purpose.
Three member’s lunch gatherings were organized by the Membership Committee to provide members an opportunity to reinforce their network of relationships.
Our congratulations to members:
