SAILING THE HIGH SEAS FOR MEMBERS
It’s the beginning of another year and our goal is again 100% renewal. Units did a fantastic job last year! You should be proud of your accomplishments and we are looking forward to you following that trend again for 2022-2023. The membership goal for this year is based on the 2021-2022 membership numbers plus one new member for every Unit in the Department of Virginia. From past experience, we know it is not going to be a walk in the park but the Department has confidence in your ability to overcome any obstacle.
- By the 15th of each month Districts should submit to the Department Membership Chairperson a brief update on how your Units did the previous month. Include pictures in “jpg” format if you have any; more information on the quality of pictures will be included in the Program Action Plan.
