“Finally getting out of the Stone Age” | “VFW post going tobacco-free for its future, families” – From the PA VFW News E-Update pointing to a Post that gets it in Sharon, PA
The State Commander also exhorts VFW posts to “recruit and retain” members. “As of today, the VFW is 33,563 members behind where we were at this time last year. One of the biggest sources of this decline in membership is the lack of retention at the local Post level. Members are allowing their dues to expire for various reasons, and we are watching the organization shrink as a result.”
He goes on saying that not being familiar with computers is no longer acceptable. “The Adjutant General has given us our marching orders – increase membership, use the tools that are available, work those unpaid lists, and get our membership numbers up. It is no longer the time to make excuses or give reasons why our Posts are shrinking. It is the time to do what must be done: recruit and retain.”
