Hi folks:

The current issue of Grassroots Fundraising Journal 
( has an interesting article on 
building membership programs.


Revitalizing Your Membership Program:
Why Do You Need Members- and Why Do They Need You?
By Ellis M.M. Robinson

[ed:  the above article is now linked from the COMM-ORG 
"Readings" page.]

I'd also like to make folks on this list aware of a new report co-
authored by one of my colleagues who works for the Chemical 
Weapons Working Group.  The report - called "Learning Not to 
Burn: A Primer for Citizens on Alternatives to Burning Hazardous 
Waste" - covers a grassroots strategy to oppose incineration, how to 
judge technologies, technology options to inceration, and more.  If 
focuses on the need to combine zero waste/clean production 
strategies and anti-incineration strategies for a holistic approach. It 
also includes case studies on the movements to stop chemical 
weapons incineration nationally and to force clean production 
strategies at Kodak's facilities.  

The report is available at
