“Got Members?”

The “Got Members," membership drive began at Conclave and will culminate with a Statewide Double Degree on December 10th. The main feature of the drive is the return of the "Prospect Party-in-a-Box", which the State Master Councilor and Dad Matt Gerrish, the membership director, will be hand delivering in the next month. The box contains items that will assist the chapters with holding a prospect party, as well as giving the members some useful tips on how to speak about DeMolay to their friends and prospective members. The State Master Councilor will be confirming dates with the Master Councilors as to when it is convenient to deliver and explain the contents of the box to the chapter.
