10:15 Telling ain't selling As clubs we complain how difficult it is to get the public's interest when we have membership drives in shopping malls, country fairs, galas etc. During this workshop we will look at how, without making drastic changes to our approach or what we say, we can better our chances of gaining the person's interest and possibly gaining a new member by using the penny card and other approaches.
