MESSAGE FROM THE CO-CHAIRMAN

From: The Detachment of Massachusetts Sons of The American Legion Membership Chairmen
 
               Hello Everyone
The final National Membership Goal is approaching fast it’s due by July 19th this goal is for 105% currently Massachusetts is sitting at 23 in the Nation we still need 244 members to reach 100%. At this time there are still several Squadrons sitting at 0% dues paid for the year this is unacceptable. The membership team will be contacting you directly to see what can be done to correct this situation. Some of you only need 1 or 2 to reach your goal so please keep pushing; reach out to your members and try to get those renewals and keep trying to bring new members into your squadrons one call can make all the difference.
For those of you who were not at the convention and have not completed and sent in your Squadron Consolidated Report form please do so soon if you have completed it and sent it in we thank you. If you are unsure about how to complete the report feel free to contact any of the Detachment Officers or you can contact Marvin, Cliff or me directly and we will help you through the process. I look forward to reviewing your reports and seeing all of the great things you are doing for our veterans and our communities.
 
Again if you need assistance and you would like Marvin, Cliff and I to attend one of your Squadron meetings or just meet to answer your questions please let us know and we would be happy to set up a visit.
 
Thank you for your continued support to our veterans, their families, and our communities.  
              
Reminder: Our Detachment Executive Committee Transition meeting will be held at the Cherry Valley Post on July 15th at 11:00 AM everyone is welcome to attend. Feel free to contact us for more information.
 
We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting or event.
 
Thank you

                             Hello Everyone

March is nearing its end  and many Squadrons are still behind on dues payments. Our next National Membership Goal is for 90% by April 12th  however we need to have the payments into the State House the week before so they make it to National on time. All Squadrons that are below 80% dues paid we need to hear from you right away and all 0% dues paid Squadrons you are now in danger of having your charter suspended. This issue must be addressed as soon as possible remember nonpayment of dues not only hurts your Squadron and post it also hurts the Detachment as a well. Dues submittal must be made in a more timely fashion to assist both the State House and the National Organization. Here are the rest of the Membership Target Dates for the year.

90% by April 12, 2017

100% by May 10, 2017

105% by July 19, 2017

 

Marvin and I continue to attend District Meetings and Marvin will be attending the District 6 meeting this week.  Again if you need assistance and you would like Marvin and I to attend one of your Squadron meetings please let us know so we can add the visit to our schedule.

 

Special Note: The National Americanism Commission is still looking for information on Americanism related events for future articles to be shared with Squadrons across the nation. If your Squadron is sponsoring an event please share what you are doing by writing an event summery and include some photos. I’ll pass the information along to the Commission Chairman for his review.

 

Thank you for your continued support to our veterans, their families, and our communities.  

              

Reminder: Our next Detachment Executive Committee meeting will be held at the State Convention everyone is welcome to attend. Feel free to contact us for more information.

 

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting or event..

 

Thank you

                   Ernie
