2018 ~ 2019
LETTER OF INTRODUCTION
From: Detachment Commander Ernest E. Laberge
To: All Squadrons
Re: 2018-2019 Commanders Message
Hello everyone Feb 13, 2019
Membership is still low but there are signs of improvement, as a Detachment we are currently sitting at 67.77% and just missed the National Goal of 75% which was due today 2/13/19. The next National Goal of 80% is due by 3/13/19 and that goal can be reached if everyone works together and gets their membership in. However there are still 15 Squadrons who have not submitted any membership dues to the State House at this time. This means that those Squadron members benefits are inactive until their dues have been paid. Please reach out to any of the Detachment Officers for assistance, Vice Commander Marvin Nay our membership chairman is hard at work trying to help keep the Detachment on track but it takes all of us as a team working together to reach our goals.
Here is a list of as of 2/4/19 of the Squadrons who are still showing 0 membership paid to the State House.
- Sturbridge 109
