Event Reports

by Dianne Cermak

A Round Table discussion of Recruiting & Retention was held at the AGM among seven ringers who began learning five or fewer years ago. In the hope that their perspectives would be most revealing about the current situation in North America, they were encouraged to discuss how they first heard of and came to ringing, what got them back the second time, and what has kept them coming in the years since. They also discussed reasons they thought others who began with them had dropped out. Their comments provide substantial grist for the Recruiting & Retention effort in North America.
