MUCHMEMBERS 2005
can help you do all these things. This is the third year of our successful membership contest, and participation is growing. In 2004, 13% of our overall membership recruitment was through the membership contest. This year, we'd like to increase that to 20%.

Here are the MUCHMEMBERS 2005 contest rules:

1.

The contest will begin at midnight EST on Wednesday, June 1 and end on Monday, October 31 2005. All mailed membership applications must be postmarked no later than October 31, 2005.

2.

Memberships received between June 1 and October 31, 2005 may benefit your Local Group and/or Chapter with cash prizes totalling $3,500.

The prizes will be distributed as follows: $1,500 for the winning group and $1,000 for the winning group's Chapter; and $500 for the largest percentage Group growth with $500 going to the percentage growth winning Chapter.

3.

Winners will qualify based on the number of new members who join their chapter or group between the beginning and close of the contest. Renewing members will not be included in the total.

4.

Runners up will qualify based on the percentage of membership growth for their group (this will provide an incentive for smaller and rural groups to compete as well).

5.

The Contest is open to all SCC chapters and groups that wish to participate. Winners will be announced on November 15, 2005.
