29ANALYSIS OF ASHHRA MEMBERSHIP GROWTH Since 2002, ASHHRA membership has been increasing by 5% until 2008.The economic crisis of 2008 and the uncertainty of 2009 were main factors for the membership shortfall, retention was more of a factor than recruitment.2008 membership growth target was based on the 2008 – 2010 strategic plan and was later deemed too aggressive based upon market conditions and the historical growth rate of ASHHRA members.The poor economy had a tremendous effect on member growth and retention in This was confirmed by the comments we received in the 2009 Member Feedback Survey.
