ALA Dept. Of VA Membership Chair
Rita C. Feasenmyer

WHY is MEMBERSHIP important? MEMBERSHIP is the life’s blood of our organization.

We are entering our 100th year as the supporting assembly to the World’s Largest Veteran’s Organization- The American Legion. Our essential goal is to ensure the American Legion Auxiliary still exists for generations to come.

Our passion in helping Veterans, Military and their families, and our Communities, can only be enhanced by growing Membership.

The 2019-2020 Membership Theme- Recruit 5, Renew 5, & Rejoin 5“Building our next 100 Years” was implemented to keep each member and their respective units focused on what is needed to accomplish a successful membership year.

We will be concentrating on different strategies to help us attain the goal of increasing our membership in order to continue identifying WHO we are, WHAT we do, and WHY we matter!

You will be receiving copious amounts of communication throughout the year via E-mail, Social Media, and Personal Phone calls. We will be sharing “Membership Minutes” which will be educational and informative. Be on the look-out for “Shout Outs” to recognize Units and Members who are doing extraordinary things throughout the year.

In order to help you monitor and remain on track with our goals throughout the year, A “Membership Milestones” Calendar is being utilized as part of the program action plan. I encourage you to review this daily and make it a tool in membership planning for your units and share it with all members.

We have an exciting year ahead of us and I’m looking forward to The ALA Department of VA having an outstanding year as we head into the next 100 years!
