Associations like ours need new blood all the time and recruiting is an important activity.  That is the reason we instituted an annual recruiting contest to foster the recruiting efforts of our members.  The contest runs from July 1st to June 30th of the following year.

The winner receives his/her membership card free for one year.

In order to improve things further, the Board of Directors (BoD) decided to offer "discount coupons" worth $20.00 to recruit a new member.  Either the sponsor or the new member can pay the cost of the membership: it's your choice.  But there are two conditions:

  1. Discount coupons cannot be used for the annual renewal of a membership, but only to recruit someone who is not a member of the Association, that is only to recruit a new member.
  2. Should the new member wish to obtain a copy of his family tree an additional $10.00 must be included, for a total of $30.00.

Thanks to the willing participation by many members, this program is a success, as was clearly established by the periodic reviews carried out by the BoD.

A sponsor will earn two points for each new member recruited using the discount coupons.  You can also use a discount coupon to recruit a former member of the Association who left it for more than two years.  In this situation, the sponsor will receive one point.  The Association will tabulate the points upon receipt of the discount coupons and periodic progress reports will be published in Info.  The final result of the contest and the name of the winner will be announced during the Annual General Meeting and published in the next issue of Info.  Should the winning member be present at the AGM, the President will award the free membership card at that time.  Otherwise it will be mailed out.
We urge you to participate in this contest because by doing so you will contribute to the continuing good health of our Association.  To this end you will find enclosed a discount coupon form.  Do not hesitate to make copies and, more importantly, to use them.
