Hello to all my brothers and sisters in the Auxiliary.  I am Diane Hawk, I come from one of the largest Auxiliaries in the State of Illinois.  My co-chairman is Vicky Roach, she comes from an Auxiliary that is less than 50 members.  Vicky and I have been friends for many years.  We both feel that membership is the key to the future of all Auxiliaries.  We both have struggled at getting membership, so we are just like you.

We are putting a capital I in membershIp.  We are changing our focus from Recruiting, Rejoining and Retaining to Inviting, Involving and Investing.  This is our directive from the National Organization as we continue Serving Our Veterans with Aloha .

As we are Lighting the Way for Our Veterans, we have Our Mission: NOT IMPOSSIBLE.  So, I am asking each of you to keep your eyes open and become a detective or a spy and see who you could Invite to join us, and then Involve them in a program with you, and as we all do that, we will Invest in the future of each of our Auxiliaries.

Each year we need to find at least one person that we can invite to join us.  Explain that our focus is aiding to make sure benefits for active duty and veteran service persons are not forgotten.  Take someone with you to a VA facility or even a local nursing home; show them how much you get out of giving someone a hug.  Let them know of the scholarships for veterans and their children.

Once they have joined, get them Involved.  Have someone in your Auxiliary explain things to them that are particular to your Auxiliary.  Give them a list of your officers & chairman and how to reach them.  Give them a list of upcoming events they can help with or attend, offer to give them a ride.  Show them the ropes and have them come up with some new ideas.

As you are getting them involved, you are Investing in the future of your Auxiliary.  None of us will live forever, we need to teach and encourage our new members, so they will step up in the future.

We are asking all Treasurers and Membership chairman to please look at the I Spy Awards and Get The Money Awards.  Start your program on the 1st of July and let’s make sure Our Mission: NOT IMPOSSIBLE of being 100% plus is a success.
