Jeff is entirely on track with his thinking.
Membership is important
membership means something
membership should have privledges (not just could... it should!)
side note: Membership means so much in how you relate to the community.
"Hi, I'm a board member of the non profit disc golf club named Stumptown disc golf"
- "Nice to meet you. So you can speak for them - how big is your membership and how many people do you represent?"
These are almost verbatim the exact questions any official or agency will ask to evaluate how much your input is worth. Who are you, and how many people do you represent?
One of the great ways to enroll membership is in offering benefits to membership besides commodities. Instead of just relying on "become a member and get a [shirt][disc][etc]", the ability to provide a benefit that costs the club nothing is fantastic! I've advocated for members priority registration or.. gosh, I'd even be good with a members only event/drive.
