  5. 5. A look back 2000-01 administrative year, 292 new clubs were organized Of those 292 clubs: * Only 110 of the 292 clubs, or 38%, are still active. * 76 of the 110 clubs, or 69%, are under charter strength. * Of those 76 clubs, 40 clubs (53%) have between seven and 15 members. * Only 17 of those 76 clubs, or 22%, have 30 or more members.
  6. 6. Why do new clubs fail? New clubs fail because the club: 1. Is built too small. 2. Lacks an initial service project. 3. Lacks money/funds. 4. Fails to train all officers, board members and club members. 5. Receives poor mentoring of the club by sponsoring club.
