I have seen it in numerous societies. Membership and participation are decreasing making it increasingly difficult for societies and chapters to thrive. This has been recognized by the current President General and was covered in his inaugural speech. The President General tasked the Membership Committee to create a mentor program geared toward mentoring new members. This program would help new members become familiar with the National organization as well as the chapter.
I encourage all members to read details of the program as released by the Membership Committee. If you are a member of the Fort Dearborn chapter and interested in becoming a mentor, please let us know.
The 'Front Lines' Blog is written and supported by the Fort Dearborn Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution located in Chicago, IL.
