2015-2016 National Membership Ambassador
Membership: No Excuse, Just Recruit!
We are off and running in Membership. We have 11 months left to reach our goal of 100% plus. This is going to be a record-breaking year, and YOU are going to be the ones to break that record. I cannot tell you enough how excited I am for all of you to be a part of this piece of history.
Remember we will be coming up to our first quarterly milestone September 30, 2015 of all Departments being at least 80% in membership to receive a $250 monetary award. I will be watching the membership standings on the website to see that ALL Departments are at 80% (or more) in membership on September 30th.
CONGRATULATIONS to the Department of Alaska. They have already reached the first quarterly milestone. They are standing at 83.59%. Therefore, their Department will be receiving $250. As of August 3, we are currently at 58.37% of our National goal and only need 193,296 members to reach 100%. We Got This!
It was incredible to see so many of you at National Convention in Pittsburgh. Thank you to those who attended the Membership Workshop and the Membership Kick-off. Thank you also goes out to the National Certified Recruiter Trainers who attend the Recruiter Trainer meeting.
It is so exciting to be able to start recruiting males into our elite organization. I have several brothers who have served and they are ready and honored to have the opportunity to sign their sons up as Auxiliary members. They served us and now we need to get as many people as possible to serve them.
Being able to sign males up as Auxiliary members creates so many more new opportunities for those who truly want to help veterans and their families. For example: I personally know a family whose father is a VFW member. So from his eligibility I am signing up his wife, his four daughters, his one son, and his 16 grandchildren. This is a total of 22 NEW members who are just waiting to join us in serving and honoring our American Heroes (our veterans). And trust me; we need all the help we can get!
Please wait for National Headquarters to formally address the change before you send any information to your Departments regarding the name change and eligibility information. We want to make sure the correct information is out there. This information will be coming to all of us soon. But I am ready and waiting patiently to put pen to paper and get those new members.
Please go to the National Organization’s website* to print out all the membership materials and resources that you might need to help in your recruiting efforts. For example: print out the “Just One” Card, make copies of it and pass them around to other members and get them to commit to recruit “Just One” new member.
*All membership materials can be found on the National Organization’s website by clicking on the “Programs” tab, “Membership” and selecting the Auxiliary logo on the right-hand side of the page.
Please don’t be the Department that is left behind. It is so much more than money we are working towards. We are working towards making lives better for veterans and their families by building the biggest and best Auxiliary ever in history.
We want to start off fast and keep it going until our goals are met. Once we reach our goals the momentum will be set for next year to do the same. Remember you have less than 11 months to make a HUGE difference in the direction of this organization and most of all in the lives of veterans all over the world.
Remember to accept
You Got This!
