YOU have reduced the rate of membership decline in 2019 with your dedication and efforts.
2019 had the lowest net loss since 1983. Twenty-one (21) chapters brought in new members this past year.
Fantastic job! Thank you for your efforts!
Letís keep this moving in the same positive direction and strive for an even lower net loss in 2020.
