Is your Chapter have a tough time with retention? This semester, the Chaptership Team was able to meet with FIMRC Chapters to discuss what makes their Chapters awesome and what they would like to improve on. A main focus for each Chapter we spoke with was the problem of member retention.

We interviewed Daniel Weng, the Director of Internal and External Affairs, to see how the addition of FIMRC Families has increased their number of active members!
