yes, lots of clubs are working hard at getting new hams. but that is only ¼ of the problem. ¾ of the problem comes AFTER new hams get licensed. 99% of new hams are ignored, and have no one to turn to to get advice and have questions answered. They feel uncomfortable and unwelcome at clubs. There are no post license classes, or programs in most of the US. There are very few up to date books that cover "You just got your ham license, Now What?". If we all don't do something, our hobby will take its place in the history books within 10-15 years.
