Farming for Members
A new year, a new theme, and a new chance to reach our membership goal. The membership goal this year will be 16,000 members, that is 12 more than we ended with last year. So far, we have been ahead of the goal dates set by National. Each district commander will be given a straw hat to take with them and at the DEC meeting a shovel with the position the district is in at that time. The district in 7th place will receive a small shovel. I will give a $50.00 donation to the commander’s project in the name of the first district to reach 3-star status and a $100.00 donation for the first district reaching 4-star status. Each squadron should look at mysal.org and consider using this to pay their membership dues. It makes things easier and takes out the middleman in the process of submitting your members.
Yours in Service,
Mark Fayer, Sr.
1st Vice Commander
