As the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland continue to pile up with snow, I am longing for spring and some relief from the recent frigid temperatures we've all been enduring.
The Maryland Jaycees are heating things up and have started off 2014 with a bang seeing chapter growth within the first two months. Kudos to those chapters! We are well on our way to seeing our state obtain long overdue membership growth. Keep up the great work!
Don't forget that we would like to keep in line with the National Membership goal to have zero unknowns by the 15th of each month and have all of your new members entered and renewing members paid for by the end of the month. I know you all can do it!
If you have any questions or have trouble with the membership site (as some chapters have reported) please contact me.
Finally, I encourage each of you to enroll in the Passport to Civic Leadership Program (if you haven't already) to get the most out of your Jaycees career. While you're at it, keep track of all those new members you recruit and let us know so you can join the ranks of the Fleet of the Chesapeake! Contact your chapter Membership Vice President or myself for further information.
I look forward to seeing you all in Westminster in May for what I am sure will be a stellar Golf Tournament and Maryland Jaycees Convention. See you then!
