Default Australian politics and the Jewish community


Quote:
Australian politics and the Jewish community
By Philip Mendes - posted Wednesday, 1 June 2005


Historically Jews have been involved in Australian politics at both an individual and collective level.

Jews have been individually active in a range of Australian political parties and social movements, including the environment movement; feminism, gay and lesbian rights; anti-war activism; trade unions; Aboriginal rights; and refugee issues. The perennial question is to what extent these Jews represent specifically Jewish concerns and values, or just themselves.

Collectively, Jews have impacted both as groups of voters (although in serious numbers only in the federal seats of Wentworth and Melbourne Ports) and through representative roof bodies and organisations such as the Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ), the state Jewish Boards of Deputies and Community Councils, the Zionist movement, private think tanks such as the Australia-Israel and Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) and some radical or leftist groups. Again, the extent of representativeness is contentious.

Within electoral politics, Jewish involvement in the Australian Labor Party (ALP) seems to have been more prominent than within the Liberal Party. Since World War II, eight of the nine Jewish members of the Federal Parliament have represented the ALP. These include such prominent figures as Senator Sam Cohen who was Shadow Minister for Education when he died prematurely in 1969, Whitlam Government Ministers Dr Moss Cass and Joe Berinson, Hawke Government Minister Barry Cohen and the current member for Melbourne Ports, Michael Danby. A number of Jews have also been prominent in New South Wales State Labor politics.

It has often been said that Jews and the Labor Party enjoy a special relationship since Dr Evatt supported the creation of the State of Israel and Arthur Calwell supported post-war Jewish immigration. Consequently a clear majority of Jewish voters favoured the ALP from the late 1940s until about the late 1960s. Nevertheless, tensions have often existed and have sometimes tested the loyalties of Jewish Labor parliamentarians.

For example in October 1962 Senator Sam Cohen - former President of the left-wing Jewish Council to Combat Fascism and Anti-Semitism - was lambasted by the Jewish community for opposing a motion condemning Soviet anti-Semitism while former ECAJ President and Labor MP Syd Einfeld was praised for supporting the motion.

In recent decades Jewish support for Labor has declined, although the recently formed Jewish Labor Forum in NSW may succeed in revitalising this relationship. The pro-Palestinian positions of some important Labor figures who are mainly, but not exclusively, associated with the Left faction have created considerable tensions in the party.

These tensions were utilised by the Liberal Party during the recent federal election campaign in the seat of Melbourne Ports in an attempt to embarrass the sitting Labor MP Michael Danby. These tactics enjoyed some success despite his unchallengeable pro-Israel credentials - the Liberals won a clear majority of the Jewish vote in Melbourne Ports. Danby, however, retains a significant following in the Jewish community and this personal vote almost certainly reduced the gap in Melbourne Ports between Jewish support for the two major parties, and hence helped him home in a tight contest.

In contrast, Jewish parliamentary representation in the Liberal Party has been relatively sparse with the notable exception of two Ministers, Senator Peter Baume at the federal level, and Walter Jona in the Victorian Parliament. This is surprising given that all available (albeit limited) data on Jewish voting patterns suggests that a clear majority of Jews have voted Liberal for the past three decades. This right-wing shift arguably reflects a number of factors including the growth in Jewish religious orthodoxy, the high attendance at Jewish day schools and the generally affluent socio-economic status of Australian Jews.

My own take on this is as follows: Most Jews agree with conservative views on matters of economics and taxation and the Australian-US alliance. But their main political priorities are not universalistic - that is, they are focused on specific Jewish concerns such as Israel and anti-Semitism - and they are generally not interested in traditional conservative concerns such as the monarchy, abortion, the traditional family and so on.

Jews also tend to be surprisingly liberal on social issues. They don’t share socially conservative views on drugs, feminism, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, refugees or Aborigines. In many cases those same Jews who support Ariel Sharon and denounce Arab terrorism are passionate supporters of asylum seekers and are supportive of an apology to the Stolen Generation. This comes through particularly in letters to the Australian Jewish News. A large number of Jews vote Liberal without being committed conservatives.

Nevertheless, there is evidence that an increasing number of Jews are joining the Liberal Party and participating as activists, paid staffers and organisers. Perhaps it is only a matter of time before more Jews enter Parliament on the Liberal ticket.

The question of Jewish roof bodies speaking on behalf of the Australian Jews is equally complicated. Suzanne Rutland has noted that the existing groups often function more as a plutocracy rather than a democracy given that they have sometimes excluded minority groups. Nevertheless, the ECAJ, state boards and community councils can reasonably claim to represent the entire spectrum of Jewish political and religious positions whether they are speaking about Israel or anti-Semitism or on broader local issues such as Aborigines, refugees, or racial and religious tolerance. However, they need to have professional funding to do this job properly. It is incredible that the ECAJ seems to have only one full-time researcher.

The Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA) also represents a range of Jewish opinion, but I personally feel that it should restrict its political interventions to Israel-related matters. This is partly because many Jews do not support the traditional Zionist objective that all Jews should immigrate to Israel and hence do not define themselves as Zionist. But it is also because a movement concerned primarily with the welfare of Israel, rather than Australia, may reasonably be seen as unrepresentative on local Australian debates. On the latter issues, the ZFA should simply defer to the ECAJ.

This brings me to the contentious issue of the private Jewish think tank AIJAC. There remains a fundamental structural question regarding AIJAC’s actions vis-à-vis the elected Jewish community bodies and representatives.

In some ways, AIJAC is similar to political party think tanks such as the Liberal Party’s Menzies Research Centre, the Labor Party’s Chifley Research Centre or the completely independent Centre for Independent Studies and the Australian Fabian Society in that it has the freedom to advocate radical views and agendas that might not be politically acceptable to the elected leadership.

However, there are two major differences between the Jewish community and political parties. First, political activists join parties out of support for an ideologically uniform position, whereas the Jewish community is politically and ideologically diverse. Second, the Australian community is generally aware that elected politicians rather than party think tanks speak on behalf of political parties. In contrast, many Australian policy makers and journalists seem to erroneously think that AIJAC is the official representative of the Australian Jewish community. This was apparent during the Hanan Ashrawi Sydney Peace Prize debate when a number of media outlets sought the opinions of AIJAC spokespersons rather than those of the elected leadership of the community.

So the challenge here is to AIJAC, the ECAJ and state councils and boards to establish formal protocols as to who does what and when. It will then be clearer to the ordinary rank and file of the community when AIJAC is reasonably claiming to represent the Jewish community and equally when it is not.

As to general principles for Australian Jewish lobby groups, I would conclude with the following:

* They need to be democratically accountable to the broader Jewish community, moderate in their politics, sober in their strategies and preferably modest, if not humble, in their claims of success. Vigorous and assertive argument is fine, but personal bullying and harassment is not;
* They should not promote or exploit rank and file fears about threats to the security and safety of Jews when such fears are not warranted; rather it is their responsibility to provide a dispassionate and balanced analysis of public issues and events and their implications for the Jewish community;
* They need to represent the full diversity of the Jewish community; and
* Lobbying activities need to target their actions and rhetoric primarily towards undecided groups outside the Jewish community rather than preaching to the converted within.

This is an edited version of a presentation to an Australian Jewish Historical Society forum on Jews and Australian Politics held on May 26, 2005 in Melbourne.

Hmmmmmm...seems like the sort ofpeople keen to overthrow "thrown and alter". Maybe even foment a revoloution? I will have to read up more on this interesting segment of the population in Australia. My instincts tell me to keep a close eye on them.

The Promised Land, as described in God's Word, is geologically stable, rich in EVERYTHING, and entirely surrounded (girt) by sea.

And not only did the Super-Continant not divide untill Peleg's time, but along with the earthquake Amos wrote of, there were countless other lands removed from off the face of the earth.

And no "new" land was ever "discovered", that didn't have an old map or direction that preceeded the hunts for them.

And the lie that those Catholic run nations that sailed around Australia, hundreds of years before her 'official' discovery, thought it wasn't worth exploring let alone claiming, while fighting to claim chunks of unproductive sand and ice deserts all around the rest of the world, is just to riddiculous for any sane person to entertain as even argueable.

Australia's Elite Jews, like The Crown, the elite of their Orange (and related) Orders and the Vatican, know what this all means, and why MIZRAIM was CHANGED 677 times out of 681 mentions in The Bible, to read as "Egypt".

You can mention just about any conspiracy these days and find people to boldly join in the research, but raise The Orange Orders countless conspiracies or the fact that MIZRAIM is NOT Egypt, and you find yourself alone but for countless poison sword wielding (Counterfeit) Christians and Satanists, on a shared mission, to permanently silence you.

"EGYPT", is Nowhere in The Bible.

"Icke The Lizards And The Orange Order"

I thought it was the jooooze?

Make up ya mind David. What ever happened to those shape shifting lizards?

Ahem...well, I have heard a few rumours that Oz was the "New Jerusalem" though the Bible is specific regarding Christ setting foot on the Mt of Olives once again. But then again God has a habit of arriving in the least likely far out place...just like he did in far away God Forsaken Judea/Samaria all those years ago..."what good can come out of Nazareth"?

Well one thing I know for sure...Oz IS the New World Order Globalist/Zionist bunker when they realise the only way out is to nuke 2/3rds of the Earth to get their way.

Will get back...the heathan scum who put this internet on in the house, wants to play internet poker. What can I say?

Ciao for now.

Simply, "Family" squabbles.

It was tough going in Europe over that period.
Not only were the "Families" planning how to divide the world up for themselves, they were also fighting over who got the spoils and who paid the debts, for the lands they already had and were 'bidding' for.

Global power centres needed to be secured first, and that takes very, long running 'diplomacy'.

You also had Rome desperately needing to bury and destroy evidence of the history of the world, so they could sell the false history they use to keep everyone hoodwinked into thinking it's a Christian religion.

The Dark Ages was no time of madness when the most powerfull and educated didn't know the value and importance of history, quite the contrary, they knew history would bring their plot undone, so decided to keep history for themselves, destroy common knowledge of it, and feed the world their lies.

Then they needed to take alot of time to establish false but commonly held beliefs, to be the footings of their New World Order.

Cook was commissioned to officially discover Australia, only after the squabbles were settled, new histories accepted and the surrounding islanders who knew their history, could be bribed/terrorised into keeping the "Family" lie, alive.

There is no shortage of Jesuit trainned Gatekeepers, in all the islands surrounding Australia, as Billy Connoly's wife discovered when trying to research her family history in the region.

Yes, well they were always squabbling. They know who the enemy is though.

Not for the British. They were approaching the height of their power. I presume when you say Europe you also mean Great Britain.

Hmmmmm...not quite. Certain people "owned" the money supply and had no problems with debt. By this period of history the Rothschilds/Beauers were well and truly ingratiated with European and most certainly British Royalty. They were calling the shots together with the Elite of England and had promised them that they were one of the lost tribes of the house of Israel and they would rule the world alongside the Jewish/Mystery religion adherents of the Zohar/Kabbahla. Queen Elizabeth the 1st called England the "New Jerusalem" all the time and it was during this period that British MI6 was started by the cunning and pragmatically crafty William Cecil. Just have a look at the MI6 logo...



Notice anything there worth noting?

The "Orange Order" is nothing more than a subsidery of the secret Judaic orders melted in the Babylonian Mystery religions, who ultimately trace back to the time of Phareo and the wish to rule as gods on earth..."Luciferianism". ANYONE who claims the conspiracy is ANYTHING but a fundamentally "jewish" operation is one of two things...

1) Wrong. Sincerely so.

2) Just another shill for the opposition muddying the waters.

Ultimately the conspiracy is Satanic and involves a struggle between the fallen human being and his desire to live free from God and His laws. The CURRENT "rocket sled to hell" where the Cheif Of Operations resides, is the totally corrupted philosophical foundation of the conspiracy - "Judaism"...a virtual organised crime syndicate. No more no less. NO other organisation comes close and ALL other so called pretenders for the throne are OWNED and OPERATED subsideries of said organised crime outfit. That includes ALL the Freemasonic Orders and the so called "Illuminati" and all the rest of the comic book outlaws. Ultimately real power lies in the 'Round Table Groups' started by the Rothschild funded "Cecil Rhodes". I find all the rest filled with useful idiots and trouser puller upper'ers.

Indeed. Or a big stick and lotsa blackmail and assassination.

Quote:

Well, the Pagans had to sneak in somewhere. With some defence of the Catholic Church...they were operating against the forces of the world trying to fracture Christendom. Pagans here and there and the Mohummedians at their doorstep coming up from the south through Turkey. A trying time for all.

As ANY centralised power system does. He who controls the past controls the future. And most certainly, he who has no past has no future. This is the prime aim of our Zionist/Globalist masters. To destroy ANYTHING that connects a man to his past, his clan, his tradition, his culture, his God and to simply leave him blowing in the wind dependant ONLY on the State and it's system of control. Is it ANY wonder that this accellerated process started at EXACTLY the same time of the move of the Kahzar/Jewish Money Changers into Eastern Europe?

Quote:

Yes they did. But you blame the Catholic Church? The Jesuits? The Orange Order? Strangely (or perhaps not so) you forget to mention that other organised crime grouping who have been around for 3000 years. Why is that? Are you simply illinformed (in which case i hope i helped) or are you ANOTHER one of those Gunderson/Maxwell/Icke compromised Zionist shills muddying the waters for the unitiated?

Please tell Maxwell that the Jesuits do not control the world and the Popes cross is upside down because thats how Saint Peter was crucified considering himself unworthy of crucifixian in Christs manner.

Sometimes my friend it pays to look up varied sources for your information. One good source is the blessed "Orthodox Christian Churches". Here you will find a wealth of information on symbolism and tradition that is based on a 2000 year tradition and not on the convolouted fancy of Maxwell and his rapid fire drivel of truth and half truth mixed with outright lies. The man will not even correct his mistakes or reply to e-mails disagreeing with him so I can tell you he is practically useless and downright dangerous to the point of making me highly suspicious of what he does in his spare time and how much of it is on video.

All roads lead to the money changers who have financed this criminal operation and subverted ALL institutions of the West and beyond.

It is hard to believe you missed this fairly banal and easily found out history.

Quote:

The islanders were simple local flora and fauna and no one gave a shit what they said. The only terrorizing came when they ate a landowners sheep...not when they decided to "expose" the conspiracy.

Quote:

You forgot those OTHER well trained subversives and gatekeepers in the region. They're called "Zionists" and they run around framing muslims and own U.S Foreign Policy...or does the Vatican control the U.S? MAybe the "Shriners"? Did the "Shriners" finance the Bolshevik revoloution?

As for "Pam"...dont let the truth get in the way of a good doco. As one who knows a few documentary makers, hers took the cake in "manufactured" tense moments. I saw her latest offering and was laughing myself silly as the crew fought off pirate attacks (not filmed but faithfully retold for the camera's) and Pam tearfully told us of her fear of muder and mayhem from the safety of her cabin bunk...touching and indeed riveting television. No doubt aged retirees watching the good old ABC were riveted to their rocker/recliners as Pam told the story of her desperate struggle to find the truth of her family background.

Obviously Billy had a few sheckles spare as a tax dodge and decided he could kill two birds with one stone and get rid of the Missus for a few months in the bargain. No doubt the pubs were rocking in Glasgow during this period.

I'll get back to you after I review your posted info on the specifics of Oz being "The New Jerusalem".

Simply put the logistics were terrible. The North West of Oz where the explorers came is hot and dry apart from the wet season where it's hot, dry and then occassionally very wet.

No lovely forests and rich green farming land was in sight. Also...who the hell were you going to colonise with? Well, the British worked that one out.

I see zero grand conspiracy in it all. Australia is simply a logistical and survival nightmare for sea farers from afar. Easily one of the toughest places to colonise and explore with Europeans on the planet.

ranks of the Orange order swelled with "true believers," some of them renegades from ..

Of course you MUST defend the Brotherhood and keep it's secrets buried in laughable lies...except, unlike most kids who jump online to spout fiction by gatekeepers, that they've ignorantly swallowed, I've lived a long and very "interesting" life, so you telling me (without knowing anything about who I am and where I've been), what "sources" I MUST accept (along with claiming some mind reading/remote viewing skills), kinda blows your credibility to kingdom come.

While "owners" own, and "workers" work, there are those quite, forgotten people who "RUN" the enterprise, and they are scattered through all levels.

You do know the difference between "running" and "ruling" don't you?

Albert Through the Looking Glass
- Freemasonry's Nonsensical 'No Women' Landmark
by Philip Carter


Put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea - And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!

Craftswomen

in the Old Charges, in the Building Trades, and as Stonemasons.

Philip Carter, Newcastle, 2006.

... If there is not equal or sufficient space
given to women there can be no space given
in any dynamic sense to the "working class"
and thus no full account for even the working men themselves.
B James, Where are all the Women in Labour History?, p.28.

Introduction

That history is used selectively … to misinterpret the role of women in the lodges should not be surprising. Masonic historiography is not exempt from the prejudices displayed by historians in general. Indeed, it suffers from all the problems in extensor. Rich and Reyes, Black Women Freemasons, p.6.

The 'No Women!' rule is to women and Freemasonic history what the fiction of terra nullius has been to aborigines and Australian history. Just as that fiction was a stumbling block to reconciliation with the original Australians, so too has the fiction of 'No Women!' led Freemasons to prevaricate and dissemble.

Not only has the 'No Women!' rule compromised Freemasonic jurisprudence and its peculiar system of morality (see 'Albert Through the Looking Glass', this site) the notion of 'No Women!' has confounded Freemasonic history, becoming, as it were, an article of faith. Thus, the ample examples of the involvement of women among the predecessors of modern, mainstream Freemasonry have been discredited as awkward, 'singular' exceptions or as evidence of the implausibility or irrelevance of the evidence.

For instance, the 1389 Certificate of the Guild of Masons at Lincoln specifically mentions 'brothers and sisters' in every clause. Moreover, after the suppression of the Guilds, the property of the Lincoln lodge was given to the city with the 'with the consent of the fraternity, brethren and sisters' (Rae, pp.22/3), Yet, what began in 1929 as a simple translation and publication (AQC, v.XLII, pp.64/67), became contaminated through a chain of references (e.g., A.Q.C., v.LIV, pp.108/110), until suggestions that the Certificate and Lodge had no bearing upon Freemasonic history became transformed into established facts (e.g., Jones, p.70).

During this process, a document as old as their 'earliest' Old Constitution MS, their much-lauded Regius Poem (c.1390), has been neglected. Lincoln's suggested status as the headquarters of England's medieval building fraternity (Rae, pp.22/3) might have meant its Certificate meriting the highest veneration among Freemasons. Blinkered by their 'No Women!' article of faith, Masonic scholars have been unable to appreciate the document at its face value.

The intention of this article is to assist Brethren to 'repair their loss' (allusion 3°, Opening), not only regarding this supremely important Certificate but with regard to other evidence, there for all to see, but to which a blind eye has also been turned. I begin with the 'Old Charges' which specifically mention 'Sisters', 'Dames' and '..she who is to be made a Mason.'

Service clubs give millions of dollars and thousands of volunteer hours to good causes in every community.

There are many different clubs — the list at the end of this chapter names almost a hundred, and more are added often. Some are world-wide; others operate in a single neighbourhood. The definition includes groups of employees such as the Telephone Pioneers of America, religious groups like the Knights of Columbus or Anglican Church Women, and even car fanatics such as the Corvette Clubs.

Many nonprofit groups have gotten support from service clubs just by luck. Working with them effectively, however, involves a systematic process. This can lead to multiple and growing donations lasting over several years.

Service Clubs
Tapping the Hidden Market
Tom F Balke

Service clubs represent one of the untapped markets for donations, gifts in kind, and key contacts in the community.

This article will describe the particularities of service clubs, how you can locate contacts in your community, how to approach service clubs, and how you can network with service clubs for a variety of purposes.
The Who, What, and Where of Service Clubs

A quick look in your local community newspaper will provide you with information concerning the service clubs active in your community. A service club can be loosely defined as any community-based organization which has regular meetings, raises funds, and supports various service projects. Some of these clubs have their own foundations and national organizations which may provide matching funding.

You may already be familiar with a number of service clubs, including the following: Cosmos, Kinsmen, Knights of Columbus, Lioness, Optimists, Rotaract, Comradettes Service Club of the Blind, Kinettes, Legion, Leos, Soroptimists, Interact, IODE, Kiwanis, Lions, Masons, Rotary, and Zonta. Each club has its own specific interests and project requirements. The majority of service clubs are interested in community projects rather than international projects, and yet the experience of Operation Eyesight Universal shows that with effective marketing and project follow-up, anything is possible.

Service clubs assist with a range of charity projects including crisis intervention services, environmental projects, drop-in centres, international student exchanges, and the arts.

It is important to understand that each group has distinct culture and organizational rituals. Your task is to make contact with your local service club and determine what interests it. Service clubs are sometimes jealous of each other as they compete in fundraising projects, and vie for media attention in local newspapers.
How to Infiltrate Your Local Service Club

Which of the above organizations have you had contact with? Do you know any local Rotarians, Lions, or Kiwanians? Does anyone on your board know someone involved with one of the above clubs?

The best way to approach service clubs is through the back door. Offer through one of your personal contacts to give a presentation to the local club. This method is far more successful than the cold call approach.

If all else fails, contact your local newspaper, chamber of commerce, city hall, or reference librarian.
Membership in Service Clubs

If you are responsible for fundraising over a large geographic area, you might consider becoming a member of a local service club. This will grant you a level of respect which is otherwise difficult to develop. Membership in a service club is only effective if you are willing to take the time and effort to network effectively.

Membership in a variety of service organizations enables you to `make up' at any regular meeting of any club around the world. This is your passport to visiting other clubs in your area and gives you the opportunity to informally discuss the work of your charity.
Presentations to Service Clubs

Before making a presentation to your local service club, take the time to ask the program chairperson how long your presentation should be, whether a slide projector or VCR is available, and how many people will be in attendance.

Each service club has its own protocol. You may want to ask what the specific interests of the local club are.

Plan ahead to bring brochures and audio-visual aids. Be visual!

Remember, many `knife and fork' members have heard hundreds of presentations — make sure that yours is interesting, visual, and relates to a mix of personal experiences explaining the human impact of your organization. Humour also helps, but it should not be overdone.

Many service clubs are uncomfortable with a strong direct pitch during your presentation. Don't tell them how much you want from the club; seed imaginations, provide them with opportunities, and above all tell them moving personal stories about the concrete impact your charity has had.
Making the Solicitation

I have found that the best response is obtained by preparing a specific proposal tailored to the interests of a given club. Follow up your presentation with a nice letter to the president containing a project proposal. If you are on the ball, you may be able to prepare a selection of proposals in advance to give to the club. The club president or committee chair is the best person to give it to.

The majority of service clubs have specific committees which meet regularly to deal with funding requests. Your request may first be sent to the director of community service for discussion and then on to the directors for approval. It is important to obtain the names of key people in this process.

Use the time before and after the meal to strategically determine what kind of projects the club sponsors, the range of gifts, and the fundraising activities they are involved in. You may find that you can offer them assistance in their fundraising program. It is crucial that you express a genuine interest in their club and their individual professions.

If you fail in your request, try again. Ask when they might be able to consider another application. Learn from your experiences, and thank them for their consideration. Remember, you are in it for the long haul and your contacts with a specific group may lead to other opportunities.
Once You Get the Gift

Congratulations! You have succeeded in presenting the case for your charity and have effectively infiltrated the culture of your local service club. Now for the bad news: they will not give to you again — unless you provide effective feedback.

The most common complaint I hear when I visit service clubs is that a charity has not maintained contact with them, and has not provided concrete follow-up, such as photos, a video, or report about the project which the club has sponsored.

Make sure that the club is properly credited for their contribution. You might want to take the initiative and send an article and photo to the local newspaper or TV station. If this fails, send a nice letter to the editor of the local paper publicly thanking the group for their gift.

Phone the club president to say thank you. Put club members on your mailing list, invite a representative to a reception, send Christmas or Hanukkah cards. If it has been a major project, call the president and offer to present information to the club whenever convenient.
Establishing a Network

One of the key objectives of visiting local service clubs is to make contact with people of influence and affluence in the community. You can meet mayors, lawyers, corporate executives, presidents of TV stations, newspaper editors, printers, and other contacts who could ultimately benefit your organization. Remember to pick up a copy of the club bulletin so that you can have the names and numbers of all the members.

I have been able to lobby members of parliament; get television and radio public service announcements aired, newspaper articles published; have received major donations from foundations, $20,000 in free optometry equipment; and have been provided with

discounted or free merchandise through networking at service clubs.

Do you need major donors, board members, door-to-door canvassers, local media time or permission to have your brochure included in the local water bill?

Start here! Exchange business cards and follow up contacts with a thank you note or a call asking for specific advice. Ask if they know anyone who could be of assistance with a specific task or problem area.

Once you have established a relationship, you can also obtain the names of contacts in other clubs, or even a copy of the local service club directory. This is often a confidential document and is difficult to obtain. Use your contact in a club to link up with other neighbouring clubs.
Are you willing to give, not just receive?

As a fundraiser or volunteer coordinator, you have a great deal to offer. You may even be in a position to offer the assistance of your charity's volunteers when the local service club has its next chicken roast, television auction, or midnight madness bingo. This indicates that you are willing to give and not just receive.

Your local service club may benefit from having a fundraising expert like you to help plan their next campaign. Keep your nose in the door and your face fresh in their minds.

Patience, personal contact, and pizazz! These are the secrets to tapping the hidden service club market.
