National Philoptochos Membership Guide

"The best way to reach out to new prospective members of Philoptochos and grow our organization is to get them involved.

It is not sufficient to invite others to join Philoptochos, we need to give them something to do, get them involved, assign them a task even if the task seems small and unimportant, listen attentively to their suggestions, do not discount them, welcome them as equal members of the organization.

When we do that, others have a “stake” in the organization; they feel empowered, valued, and have a sense of belonging. They feel part of the Philoptochos Family."
