FACEBOOK AS NEW AVENUE FOR GROWTH

Post #: 51
Our FB group, Choctaw Hikers, was formed 2 months ago after hearing the FTA's executive director, Dennis Miranda speak to the Choctawhatchee Chapter on the theme of growth. This group now has 128 members and is growing exponentially. It does not compete with meetup, it supports it. FB members have varying spheres of influence. I am the group administrator and will confirm your request to join if you wish. You are very welcome to adopt any of the ideas you see. We all have the same desire and that is to help the FTA grow and introduce more people to the outdoors.

Our last two hikes had 53 and 65 hikers, respectively.

Hi Steve,
I'm over here with the Trailblazers, and we've been using Meetup for several years. Have not set up a FB page. You think it is helpful, too, in reaching more people?

Leslie, After setting up a Facebook group, Choctaw Hikers (please take a look and join if you wish) our growth rate of our chapter doubled and attendance at events has gotten so huge that the events are difficult to manage. We are now contemplating two hikes at two separate geographic locations to reduce hiker load at one event. We had 13 trainees at activity leader's training in Panama City Beach this past Saturday. Total trainees from four chapters was 27. Something is happening, likely FB.

Thanks for asking.
Steve
