"Trucking for Membership"
October 2017 Update
gear jammers, our October delivery date is a few days away and there’s
some trucking companies that are sitting idol in a pickle park or in the
granny lane. We need to shift gears and put the pedal to the metal and
get these memberships in. Truckers get out and visit your distribution
centers or get on the CB and start calling them. We need 2017 and 2018
memberships delivered, so this great Detachment stays on top.
Right now we have NCD Trucking leading this convoy with 44.67 of their
memberships delivered, great job truckers. Right on their bumper we have
NESD and Baltimore Trucking running at a fast pace. Keep the hammer
down guys and show NCD that you could pass. SMD, SESD, MD and WD
truckers need to shift gears and get some memberships delivered.
Truckers remember, we're on a seven lane Highway and there is plenty of
room for passing. So keep the pedal to the metal and keep on trucking
and get those memberships in.
November 15th is our next target date, we need
to have 35% of our membership delivered, so keep the pedal to the metal and keep on trucking.
September 2017 Update
Breaker, breaker, this just in.
Boss sent a note indicating that we
need 551 more memberships from 2017 to make an all-time high in
membership. So check your trucks and distribution centers for any 2017
memberships along with 2018 memberships and get them turned in, that
way we can keep this great Detachment at the top as always.
Let me say, NCD Trucking is breaking all kinds of speed limit laws.
They're leading this convoy and distributing their membership cards.
They already have Liberty Squadron 122 who has already distributed all
their membership cards, congratulations. Right on their bumper we have
NESD, Baltimore, SMD, SESD, MD and WD truckers, several of these drivers
already delivered well over 10% of their membership, we only have ONE
that is just shy of making that goal.
Truckers remember we're on a
seven lane Highway, there are no traffic lights or speed limit and
there is plenty a room for passing. So keep the pedal to the metal and
keep on trucking and get those memberships in.
I'm asking all
truckers to not slow down once the first goal is reach, aim for reaching
the second goal and stay ahead of the traffic.
July 2017 Update
Breaker/Breaker good buddy. This is the Bear with ears (officer
monitoring the CB airwaves) reaching out to say thank you for electing me as
the membership chairman. We are pulling
out of the truck stop after fueling our engines and it time to get
rolling. I would think by now you have
figured out my theme for this year, Trucking for Membership!
We continue with the goal of
reaching 17,000 member this
year so I am asking each of you to get your keys out, start your engine and
lets empty those trailers with unpaid memberships. I am looking for each of
you to join me in
getting back to the ways of having fun, make our trucking buddies want to contribute
our great organization. Work hard before
pulling up to the Chicken Coup (truck scale) confirming we’re reaching our
monthly target. Your trailer is
currently being held up at the Coup because you’re in overload. Get your
members to paid their dues so you
can move on down the road and reach out for potential new members.
What is it going to take in your
make sure your successful in reaching the targets. Make a challenge within the
within a Squadron, competition is always fun.
Share your ideas and if you need to, ask for help.
Pick up your membership, make
sure you have a full tank
to get those memberships moving.
