Fishing For Membership
Hi guys first
off let me start off by saying thank you to all of you for electing me as your membership chairman this year.
As always we do our best to surpass membership each year and this
year is no different. The commander has set a goal for me this year.
It is to get to 17,000 members. I think with everyone's help we can
do this. I am hoping to bring some fun back to membership again this
My theme this year is going to be fishing for membership. We need to
go out to the big oceans, lakes, and small streams and reel in as many
as we can.
Let's have some fun this year I believe when you have fun then the work part of getting membership is not bad at all.
Thanks guys and let's get a boat load of members this year.
October 2016 Update
are doing pretty well with
membership but I know that we can do better. And I believe that we can still make our goal
of 17,000 members this year. Please get out to all those small ponds and big
oceans and get the membership in. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. Let’s get that membership
in. I know that the Detachment of Maryland is one of the best in the region. Now
let’s get out there and prove it. But remember this. Have fun doing it.
