This year, we are going to conduct Recruiting and Retention Drives. There will be prize drawings held at the General Membership meeting following the end of each quarter:

– For achieving 10 recruits / retentions, your name will be put in the drawing

– For every 5 recruits / retentions after that, your name will be entered again

Remember, we can recruit and retain any Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired and/or military members!
