Go For The Gold – Membership Recruitment Update

Colleen Brzozowski, Co-Vice Chair & Cindy Wendt, Chair, Membership Committee
Your weekend was probably filled with fireworks, festivities and fun as your celebrated the 4th of July holiday. We would love to continue that excitement in the GMC-PCMA chapter as we "Go For The Gold" with our Membership Recruitment.


78 new members of 312

We have just crossed over the halfway point on our timeline to reach our Olympic-sized membership goals and we need your help to get there by recruiting new members to join our chapter. Currently we have recruited 78 new members year-to-date and are at 25% of our goal. Great progress, but we still need 234 new members by December 31st to hit our goal. This means a minimum of 39 new members each month between now and then. We can't do it alone so please help us spread the word about how great PCMA is!

Your efforts in encouraging planners and suppliers to join PCMA don't go unrecognized; there's something in it for you as well! When you are listed as the referring member, you'll be in a contest to win quarterly prizes and our Grand Prize of 2 Delta Airline tickets will be awarded at the end of the year to the person who recruits the most new members.
