2018-2019 National Membership & Recruitment Ambassador
Membership: Ten Months Down, Two Months To Go!
The membership year ends on June 30, so please don’t stop recruiting! There are still a lot of lapsed members who have not paid their dues for the 2019 year. Please make sure that you are reaching out to your friends and family members if you think they might not have paid their dues yet. It will be a great loss if we lose any members in this organization due to nonpayment.
We need less than 9,000 members to be 100% in the nation. We have about 10 weeks to make this happen. I believe we can, and we WILL make this happen.
All Members of this Organization
I want to thank everyone for all the hard work that you have done for the membership program this year. I truly believe that we will make it to the goal of 100% but even if we don’t please know that I am so proud of each and every one of you that took part in the program.
National President Sandi Kreibel for this appointment. I had an amazing time and learned so much.
