  5. New Member Stewardship: encourage and support new members in integrating into the organization
  6. Hold a widely attended social event to build group cohesion
  7. Understand the requirements and recruit as necessary to meet the need for snowmobile responders
  8. Increase Pincher SAR's profile in the community through alternative media to increase recruitment
