"Climbing to New Heights"
As we begin a new year. we look to continue working on our membership. Last year we did a lot of digging in the dirty
and dark mines. This year, let's work on getting out of the dark mines by "Climbing to New Heights."
In order to climb out of the mines we will need some help so each District Commander will get a ladder to help make it
easier to reach the top. As your membership grows you will move up the ladder. Each renewed or new member becomes part of
your team to help recruit and retain your members, and as your membership grows it will help make the climb easier. Our goal
is to increase the membership by at least one more member than last year, however the more the merrier.
As an incentive to get your District to the top faster I will donate $50 to the Commander's Project for the first District
to reach 3 star and $100 for the first District to reach 4 star. These donations will be in the District's name.
Membership Target Dates are shown below. Reaching these goals sooner than later is recommended.
Let's get Detachment Membership "Climbing to New Heights" in 2019-2020.
