"Be part of the journey" 

An overworked and overused phrase that is used by politicians, bureaucrats, and just about everyone else  that has no conviction or passion. 

Perhaps they could have added ""as we go forward, be part of the journey"

And perhaps qualify the slogan by stating that Rome was not built in a day.  

From a marketing perspective, a big fail.  

Bleed Red and Blue, Raise Hell or something that stirs something, anything.

This really needs to be fleshed out a little more.

Where is the appeal to 'families'... I mean 'hard-working families'... I mean 'hard-working Victorian families.'.. or perhaps 'hard-working Victorian mums and dads'?

"As we go forward, we want hard-working Victorian families to join us on our journey as we strive to realise our core values of being a successful and sustainable club into the future."

Or you could scrap all that and just borrow from Julia Gillard: "We are us!"

Article on each club's latest membership

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-12-29/on-the-campaign-trail-your-clubs-membership-drive

I've extracted a summary and added comparisons to roughly the same time in 2017'.

For a so called power club that gets prime time games & privileges , Carltons membership is very average.

I see it the other way around...for an average club, it has quite powerful membership.

I'm pretty keen on playing finals, but in 10 years time we will probably be [censored] again. I don't let performances dictate my love or passion for the team. I'm sure we will play finals in the not so distant future and maybe even win one, but i sure as hell know it'll go [censored] up and will be down the bottom again.

Got my membership package while I was in Australia on holiday. 

Got the scarf but it wasn’t bad this time.

Agree on the slogan. Wet lettuce stuff.

Can you post a pic of the scarf? i won't get one until round 1 as I'm an Afl member (although i wear my 2010 one, which imo is the best scarf we've had this decade).

Hey Colin

Have they shorted the scarf by the mandatory 7mm again this 

year?

I have every scarf since 1989 and that is the average length decrease annualised

give a few more years and it will no longer be a scarf

What a Gyp!

That's the spirit!

Just think we'll have a new rebuild to look forward to in 10 years

@jackaub and @praha

Here it is (as Roosy once said).

The reverse side is red with blue lettering and bars. Plus no logo and no ‘Member 2018’ patch.

We should be able to spend the next three days and about 100 more posts questioning the meaning of a lack of "2018" on the scarf. Does this mean it will be the last scarf handed out free with memberships for the next few years? Or a decade? Or forever? Is it deliberate or is it just a design error? Or a manufacturing error?  Has Jack Watts tampered with the knitting machinery? Or does it mean Hogan's off to Fremantle?

Did all members receive their scarf with their membership pack? I received the membership pack but no scarf, and heard rumours of some people receiving multiple scarfs. Not too fussed about whether or not I get it, but would just like to know what's going on.

No scarf here either with the pack and they sent me the wrong membership cards for the kids.

Probably the same people who sent out the finals info last year.

We are still not flash in a few areas.

It was disappointing.

 I spoke to someone from the membership department via phone in regards to customising the kids cards back in October, it would have been nice for them to receive the cards with their favourite players on there in time for Christmas. 

I did receive a "sorry about that" though.
