I just wanted to let you know that the DMS (Direct Mail Solicitation) members are available NOW. Resolution #1 from the Spring 2017 National Executive Committee proceedings authorizes The American Legion to make immediately available to departments the contact information on newly acquired DMS members effective July 1, 2017 through myLegion.org
In order to get this report, go to myLegion.org
and click on Find members in My Area. Enter the desired zip code and the radius from that zip code. When the list populates, you will see the list of AD-2930 members. There are A LOT! This list shows AD-2930 (National holding post), WI-2930 (Wisconsin holding post), members who did not renew and expired members. Sort the list by City, then by last Post. It will help you break down the AD-2930 by location. We need to get a running start and this is a wonderful tool to help us do so.
Check often as members may flow in frequently.
*****THIS INFORMATION NEEDS TO GET TO THE POST LEVEL!!!!! I have been checking with Posts in various locations and only a few received my last email. It is your responsibility to make sure this gets to the Post level. Information getting to the Post level as been a communication weakness as long as I can remember. Please take time to follow up with the members who report to you to verify they have forwarded this vital information as appropriate.
Thank you for all you do!
Department Membership Chairman
The Department Commander returned from the membership workshop with the new Department goal for membership. We need 53,500 which is down from last year. This should be attainable.
Julie Muhle is the Department Membership Chair. Julie will be sending out some incentives but in a nutshell those who renew before November 11 will be entered into a drawing for $500. Please pass this down the ladder.
Lastly we need to think about membership roundups in our weakest areas. We all have them. Clarence and Jerry the Fox Valley is also a hot area. Let me know when we can get these scheduled so I can get the assistance from National.
Have a great week!
Todd J. Braun
Department Vice Commander
County Commanders, please make a recommendation(s) as to where we might have a Post revitalization (membership roundup)? I hope to hear from you soon.
