Photo: PHIL BARNES Grey Power keen to grow By PHIL BARNES Although Nelson Grey Power has the highest membership of any branch in the country it is keen to further increase its numbers and to communicate with its members by email rather than by using the traditional and more expensive option of the postal sys- tem. Neville Male, who was appointed Nelson Grey Power president last September, said increasing the branch's membership numbers was a top priority for its new management and executive. We are trying to increase our membership from 9000 to 10,000.'' He said it was not just a case of seeking new members as there were plenty of past members who had not renewed their membership. Neville said numbers had dropped considerably from six or seven years ago when they peaked at around 14,000. This was largely because of the collapse of the airline Origin Pacific as Grey Power members were offered discounts to fly with the air- line. In an effort to encourage member- ship, Grey Power has introduced a prize draw for the next three months. Margaret Wells won this month's draw, which was for members who had renewed their membership by the end of January. She was given two free passes for a full day bus and cruise trip to the Marlborough Sounds through SBL Group Ltd Leisure Travel. The prize for the final draw will be for a weekend for two at the Queens- town Winter Festival. Neville said another priority for the Nelson branch was to encourage communication through various information technology resources rather than the post. If you have to communicate with 9000 or 10,000 members by using the post then it's very expensive so that's why we are having a big push with email and Facebook.'' Neville said he realised there would be a certain percentage of members who had never used com- puters and would probably never have access to them but he hoped most members could use IT as a form of communication even if it was done second hand through their sons or daughters.
