2020 Membership Drive Brings 27 New Members

Membership Drive 2020The 2020 SBE Membership Drive, themed “Going, Growing, Knowing – Join the SBE,” brought in 27 new members. The Drive ran from March through May. Each member who recruited a new member was entered into a drawing to win prizes donated by several SBE Sustaining Members and the SBE. These new members were recruited by 24 existing members, who represented 21 SBE chapters.

The Grand Prize winner, who would have received an expense-paid trip to the SBE National Meeting in Syracuse, NY, this September, is Paul Easter of Rosenberg, TX. With the in-person meeting being cancelled Paul receives the cash prize option of $500. All the prize winners are listed here. Thanks to the SBE Sustaining Members who donated prizes for the Membership Drive.

Recruiters also earned $5 off their 2021 dues renewal for each new member recruited.

The Golden Recruiter Award recognizes the chapters that recruited the most new members during the Drive. Chapters are split into two classes based on the median chapter membership (29 members) of all SBE chapters. The Class A (chapters with 29 and fewer members) winners – a tie – are chapters 107 Charleston and 134 Beaumont/Lake Charles. The Class B (chapters with more than 29 members) winner is chapter 105 Houston.

Watch for details on the 2021 Membership Drive next spring.
