ALL Squadrons, Department Commanders, 1st Vice Commanders, & Fellow Sons,
A number of Posters aimed at advertising the Sons of AMVETS and helping at all levels to pull in renewals and help with New Membership drives are now available. I would ask that you take a look at these and utilize them as necessary; they may be of help to you if placed in a prominent place.
I would also ask that each Squadron, where possible, and each Department hold a Life Membership Raffle, this would help the Squadrons and Departments increase their Life Members and help to expand our Life Membership Fund in a quicker manner. To hold a Life Membership Raffle have 100 tickets printed, sell said tickets to Sons members at $5/ticket. When all tickets are sold pull a winner and purchase a Life Membership; put the remainder of the money in the Squadron/Department coffers, a winning proposition all around. Alternatively if you are a smaller Squadron sell the tickets to all members of the AMVETs Family and buy the winning individual the appropriate Life Membership. In either case if the winner is a Life Member they may donate the membership to another AMVET Family Member.
You may click on the links below or visit the "FORMS" page to download and print the flyer that best serves your needs.
Gentlemen, I wish you good fortune in your membership endeavors and if I can be of help in any way please contact me.
Yours in Service,
Ken Barber - 1st Vice Commander
National Sons of AMVETS
