I am a member of the Southern Herp Society based in the Shreveport-Bossier metro area in LA. Currently, this herp society serves as a branch under the LGCHS. However, we are looking to expand and become a more independent society. I have been selected as an interim president with the task of building the society up and gaining more members.

What I am looking for from you are any suggestions, opinions, advice and help on achieving this daunting task. I have a feeling that the biggest problem facing our society is the lack of exposure. So how do I get the word out that we exist, with the hopes of attracting new members? We have been holding monthly meetings for a few years, but participation by the existing members is fleeting and sporadic to say the least. Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the members interested and committed to coming to the meetings a little more faithfully? We only have about a dozen members of the 35-50 total that come regularly, many being students in high school. Our meetings are Tuesday nights at 7pm, does this seem to be an inconvenient time that prevents a better attendance by our members?

I appreciate any help or suggestions that you may have and welcome all comments.
