"Trucking for Membership"



October 2017 Update

Breaker/breaker 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 Squadron/District to make sure your successful in reaching the targets.  Make a challenge within the District or 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.
