Department Membership Incentives 2020-2021
The American Legion Department of Michigan’s Membership Committee presents the 2021 Membership Incentive Program. Membership within our organization has been on the decline, and it’s up to all of us to make a commitment to turn this slide around. This year the Membership Committee is taking a fresh approach to membership.
There are three categories for incentives.
- Exceed Membership Goal by the Highest Percent
- Exceed Membership Goal by the Highest Actual Number of Members
- Most Improved (Current Year % – Last Year % + #of Members above Goal) All Whole Numbers
The incentive will be based on May 12, 2021, 100% Target Date.
First Place $2,000
Second Place $1,000
Third Place $500
Training on how to use tools available to your post to obtain and retain members will be provided. Incentives in three different categories with CASH prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. What post couldn’t use $2000 cash for just a little bit of effort? We want to help serve you by providing the tools you need so that you too can be successful and reach your goals.
