This project focused on understanding current member motivation and involvement in the two organizations; Outdoor Activities Unlimited Club of Monroe Community College and the Genesee Valley Region Adirondack Club Younger Members. As a leader in both organizations it was intended to understand member motivation and involvement in an attempt to increase both. Through three months of events, meetings, and communication both membership and motivation have increased. Members have various reasons for joining clubs pertaining to the outdoors and there are cycles in the feeling of member responsibility and convenience as people’s lives change.
