WA Membership Analysis 08/09

What does this page of figures deal with?

This is an analysis of the membership situation in WA Clubs, Areas and Divisions, current to the latest figures from Toastmasters International on June 5 It is linked to the blog story.

The brutal truth is that the year has been a disaster.

Our credibility in the push for District WA has been damaged. Mike Helm and David Nicholas (sorry, that’s me) have propped up the membership figures in Innercity and Perth Divisions with 4 new clubs – shown in green below.  That is why their overall Division figures seem not as bad as Western.

How does this analysis help in any way?

We only have 3 weeks left for this year, so there is unlikely to be much significant change by June 30. This page is aimed at our incoming Division and Area Governors.
