Ottawa Outdoor Club

Membership Report: Membership Secretary, Marion Perry - 2017 AGM

This year we have 240 members, an increase over both 2014 and 2015 but a decline of 10% over 2016.  The largest cohort of members is the 49-to-56-years age group with 48% of members younger and 31% older. The majority of members (94%) registered online and 90% paid via PayPal. A complete breakdown of membership statistics from 2014 to 2017 is found in the tables below.
    
This is my last report as Membership Secretary and I would like to thank everyone who has assisted me over the past three years, particularly Rob Burnfield for importing database records and problem solving, and Ronalee Carey who for the past year completed and mailed the membership cards.  Thanks as well to my fellow board members and activity leaders who make all the activities of the Ottawa Outdoor Club possible.

Enjoy the outdoors!
Marion Perry
