The Year’s Half Gone. Will You Be an Active Member?
By W.C. Wiese
Our chapter year is half over, which means you should already have earned 7 active member points if you want to receive a coveted Orlando Central Florida Chapter Active Member shirt.
Since 2001, the Orlando Central Florida Chapter has recognized members who are consistent in their attendance and help make the chapter a success. These distinctive leadership shirts cannot be bought, only earned. They set our membership apart at STC conferences and in the workplace. (After years of envy, several other chapters have copied us and begun their own active membership programs in the past 5 years.)
As the table shows, members earn points every month they attend a meeting, put on a program, attend an Administrative Council meeting, or serve as a judge or mentor.
|Attend Chapter Meeting||1|
|Chairman/Officer||0.5/month for office0.5 for each AdCo|
|Present a Program||2|
|Visit a Class or Another Chapter||1|
|Serve as a Mentor/Month||1|
|Serve as a Judge/Month||1|
|Sponsor a New Member||2|
|Write Articles for the Newsletter||0.5|
You’ll need to earn 14 points to receive a 2015 Active Member shirt. But it will be worth it!
The shirts let our members celebrate chapter pride in the workplace whenever they choose to wear them. They send a positive message to employers, clients, and co-workers: I am committed to my profession and committed to self-development. I am a member of STC!
