“Let’s Go For The Gold” with our Membership Campaign

Colleen Brzozowski, Co-Vice Chair – Membership Committee

Did you see the photos of some of the Chicago Beaches this Memorial Day weekend? They were PACKED with people all looking for the same things: a little sun, good company and being part of something wonderful. We need your help to get our GMC membership to the same kind of levels so that our events are filled, just like the beaches, with people looking for the same things: a little education, good networking and being a part of something wonderful like PCMA.

The summer is upon us and many of us are thinking beach, vacation and street festivals. We also need you to be thinking about PCMA Recruitment so that we can reach our Olympic-sized membership goal. Currently we have recruited 67 new members year-to-date and at our 21% of our goal. We are nearing the halfway point and still need 245 new members to hit our goal.

We are thrilled to share that in addition to our quarterly award winners, we have a Grand Prize of 2 Delta Airline tickets that will be awarded at the end of the year to the person who recruits the most new members.
