FROM THE DESK OF THE LEGION ADJUTANT:
December 9, 2017:
(1) Post 40 will be at approximately 83.0% for 2018 for renewals and new members for the period July 1, 2017 to present by the time the newsletter is sent out. Our target as set by the Department of Maryland is a total of 658 new members and/or renewals to make 100%.
(2) Presently we retain $14.50 for each renewal of $40.00 with the remainder going for Department and National fees. As of January 1, 2018, Department will increase their fees by $3.50 for each renewal. This means that Post will now only retain $11.00. We highly encourage all Legion members to renew as soon as possible to ensure that we are able to maximize the amount of monies we retain.
(3) Due to personal reasons I have to resign my position as your adjutant. It has been an honor and a privilege to have been your adjutant for the past 6 months. I will continue to support the membership program as I am able.
