Another 28 chapters are also eligible. They just need to sign new members in August!
FAST STARTS STILL ACCEPTED THROUGH SATURDAY, AUGUST 8!
Plan a fun ladies shopping day in your chapter apparel. Summer is also a great time to check out community festivals and fairs as a group. Let others see how much fun your chapter has when they get together. Laughter is one of the best recruiting tools you can ever use!
Go here and watch this quick movie:
Do it now! Is there a chapter member you would like to say thanks to? Write them a note. Better yet? Do you meet somewhere that offers wireless internet? Bring a laptop to your next meeting and share the video with everyone (talk to your chapter president first to make sure there is room on the agenda). Have note cards on hand for members to write a thank you to someone special.
