2016-2017 National Membership & Leadership Ambassador
Membership & Leadership: We’re Off to a Great Start!
What a great start to the new Program Year! As of August 2, 2016, our National membership stands at 60.39%, which puts us slightly ahead of where we were at this time last year.
To all who attended the Membership & Leadership Workshop at National Convention and the Q&A following the National District Council Meeting on Thursday, July 28, I hope you found them to be informative and that all of your questions were answered.
National Convention was the kick-off to our new Program Year and now it is time to “hit the ground running.” The 2015-2016 Program Year was historic and the bar has been raised. However, I know with the team we have in place for the 2016-2017 year we will once again reach 100% plus in membership and continue to move our organization forward.
Congratulations are in order to all of the Department Presidents. Every Department met the first deadline date for the Circle of Excellence by having all Installation Reports received at National Headquarters or a recommendation to close sent to National Headquarters by July 31.
Department Presidents – All Auxiliaries must be bonded by September 15 or a recommendation to close sent to National Headquarters by that date. Now is the time to ensure that this deadline date is met. Check your Circle of Excellence criteria often; every goal can be met – it is up to you to see that it is.
Remember – Leading is about striving to become better than we are, and helping everything and everyone around us to become better too. I believe in each and every one of you – this is the year of possibilities and I believe that each of you is capable of joining National President Colette Bishop and me in the Circle of Excellence in July 2017.
Thank you to all the Membership Chairmen who have sent me introductions and promotional material; you are doing an awesome job. If you have any questions or are in need of additional information, please call or e-mail me, your Conference Coach or Brian Sullivan at National Headquarters.
Remember – Recruiting one more member matters!
