At our board meeting this Mon. past we approve 5 new members. This is a
growing situation with our chorus. Yes, we have lost a few down the line due to
sickness, death and varied other reasons. Still we maintain near the 165 mark
in membership. Do they all sing? No. Many are as faithful as weeds growing in
your yard. The show up every week and lend their support. The help in many
ways. The beat goes on.
Recently I read that our membership is under 30,000. Gee, 29,995 is still a
lot of guys. Maybe we are not trying hard enough. Maybe we are waiting for
someone else to do it. I don't think it works that way.
Ya know, I just wonder what's happening with membership around the world
with all our brother organizations. How are they fairing? What are they doing to
maintain growth? Maybe we should ask.
AAMBS, BABS, BING, DABS, IABS, NZABS, SNOBS, and SPATS.
Did you ever think what YOU could do to change the down slide in membership?
Why not start now.............I'll wait.............hmmm da da
hummm..........I'm waiting......hmmm la dee da....hmmm.......hurry up...........
Thanks for the loan of the soap box. You see I love this organization and
whole bunch of guys around the country who share this music. So there too

If you're wonderin' why the senior sector hangs to barbershop
And what's the reason why they're eager to continue till they drop,
Well, it's the filling of their precious moments tuning up a chord
And all because it has a destiny that's still it's own reward.
