President General Initiatives for 2013-2014: Retention Challenge

V. Retention Challenge
(Opportunity for State Societies)
 
Every State Society that begins calendar year 2014 with at least 95% of its membership – as that membership is determined to be as of December 31, 2013 – shall be a awarded an NSSAR streamer.
 
The Registrar General and the Staff Registrar shall determine what is the membership of each State Society as of December 31, 2013, and shall then compare that number to the membership of the respective State Society as of January 31, 2014, giving State Societies time to submit their Annual Reports.  A streamer shall be awarded based on the determination of the Registrar General that a given State Society has retained at least 95% of its membership.
 
Each State Society may, at its own discretion, implement such programs as it shall deem to be most appropriate and effective, to incentivize its Chapters to retain at least 95% of their membership.
 
Mike Tomme, the Registrar General, shall be the SAR point-of-contact on this PG Initiative.  If you have any questions, please contact Mike at mtommeatbellsouth [dot] net.
 
For the purposes of the Americanism Contest, a state society’s participation in this President General Initiative may be recorded on the Americanism Score Sheet in Tab 14, Section E, which already awards points for reinstatements, and in Section A, which measures organic growth throughout the year.
