Congratulations to Baltimore District for being the first district to reach goal.

Please reach out to those units with zero membership turned in this far. Encourage those units to send out letters rejoining the members who have not paid that their 2021 expired membership. Remind them of how valuable their service is to ALA, Veterans, active-duty military, their families, and our communities!

The Department of Maryland is in 5th place in the Eastern Division. We are 4.28% from 1st place and 1.13% away from 2nd place. We could capture first place with 1021 rejoins or new members and we only need 158 rejoins or new members. WE CAN DO IT!!!!!

Remember, MEMBERSHIP IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY! Please share your ideas for recruitment and retention. I would love to spotlight the ideas and share them with the rest of the department.
