Membership Report

2015-2016


Get Your Game On For MEMBERSHIP


As 2015 came to a close, the last membership


report for the year was incredible. The


Detachment of Maryland had 800 more paid


members than the previous year. We


finished 2015 at 66.69% of goal, which is above


our January 2016 goal of 60% percent. Leading


the way is Northern Central District at


73.99% with 2,062 paid members. Second


place is North Eastern Shore District at


72.79% with 1,220 paid members. Third


place is Southern Maryland District at


68.97% with 2,747 paid members. Fourth


place is South Eastern Shore District at


63.21% with 974 paid members. Fifth place


is Western Maryland at 62.01% with 3,189


paid members. Sixth place is Baltimore


District at 56.74% with 181 paid members.


Last place is Mountain District at 55.69%


with 357 paid members.


With the beginning of the new year, my New


Year resolution is to continue to work hard


with all of the district commanders, and


continue the momentum that we started the


first part of the year. Another resolution is


to recruit one more new member than the


previous year, per squadron. We must reach


out to as many of our members who we will


soon drop from the books. And lastly, continue


with our monthly conference calls.


Happy New Year and a very prosperous


2016 to all.



Yours in Service
