Membership structure for D@W action groups?
Are there any D@W action groups out there that are using or have used a membership structure to encourage members to pay dues as a means to collect fighting funds for any local activities? In addition, here in DC, we have not enjoyed consistent membership, with individuals attending sporadically or attending their first meeting and not coming back or committing to doing more with the local group. Do other branches have any advice on how we might tackle this issue? In part, the issue is that DC is a unique community of paid activists, we have a lot of competing priorities in this city, including other groups who explicitly focus on organizing workers to start/take over enterprises to create co-ops.
