Thank you for sending in your February newsletters. I do enjoy reading each and everyone of them. I wanted to highlight two chapters that are working on growing their chapters and attracting "younger" members.
In this addition of The Maple Lake Flyer...chapter 878 (Minnesota)...they reduced chapter dues to $10.00 if you are under the age of 35. Tom Rammel, chapter president writes: ".....so invite some young people to a meeing and encourage them to get involved in the local chapter."
He also writes, "How can we get young people involved in our chapter?". Please share any ideas on this forum. We here this a lot from many other chapters trying to recruit and retain younger members. younger we mean 25 to 35 years of age.
Printed in the "Cockpit Chatter", Ocala Florida Chapter 812 President, Bob Law writes: " This year we are kicking off a membership drive for our chapter. When you invite two friends who join our chapter and pay their dues, your membership dues will be paid for the next year, 2014. We may run a special from time to time, but don't wait for it. We need to increase our active members and cater to a younger crowd."
If you have any other suggestions, please post.
