Race to Renew!

The National Committee on Membership Development and Chapter Support encourages every AGO chapter to participate in the 2010-2011 Race to Renew Membership Campaign! It promises fun, larger membership numbers, national recognition, and the opportunity to win $500 to use in any way the chapter chooses! Chapters have been divided into three groups according to size, thereby ensuring that chapters will compete only with others of comparable membership strength. A winner will be selected randomly from each group. In order to be eligible to win, a chapter must renew 90% of the present membership roster and file its dues report to the National AGO office by September 1, 2010. 

If you have any questions about the Race to Renew Membership Campaign, please contact AGO Membership Manager Justin Storms at National Headquarters, 212-870-2311, ext. 4304, or e-mail: jstorms@agohq.org
