“Scoring For Membership”
As many of you know I have a history of coaching
sports and I am proud to say I have a history of winning too. So with that in
mind I thought we can use some coaching of our Teams to get our membership back
on top in the Nation and to reach another all time high.
To be at 100% by the time we start our 41st
To reach another all time high for the Detachment of
How we will achieve these goals;
We will work together as a Team to Coach our Squadrons
and Members to help retain membership and recruit new members.
We will have monthly conference calls to share ideas
and address membership issues and work quickly to resolve any issues.
We will listen to each other and and try to find new
ideas and plans for attacking membership
How to Score for Membership;
We will using a football theme for our membership,
Each District is it’s own team.
Scoring will go as follows,
First District with no “0” gets 3 points
Each membership Goal your district makes you will
score 7 points
The Team in the lead at our DEC meetings will get 3
points ,and if your District is at goal you will still score 2 points
If you do take part in the monthly calls to defend
against loosing members you will receive 2 points
We will have jerseys for each District Commanders and
a cover for each. If you choose to forget your game gear,,,,you will be benched
and get a safety against you and lose 2
points. Everyone participates !!!
The Team that Scores the Most by May 30th will receive 5 cases of beer for there
hospitality room at convention.
Now who will be
the Champions of membership?

Here is your first new idea from our National
Commander Joe Gladden on recruiting new members.
Lets build on the family tree, Ask all your members to
look at their family tree and identify how many members of the family are able
to be members and are not. Then recruit those family members to join our great
