22nd District News

Congratulations goes out to the 22nd District for exceeding the 85th Target

The district's membership is currently at 92.86% of goal.

Unfortunately they were the only district in Department to meet the target.

Congratulations to the following 12 Posts that met the 85%Target (including 4 Posts who have already met or exceeded goal) in the 2nd Division:

2nd District
Post 78 in Jasper (92.45%)
Post 465 in Kirbyville (90.48%)

6th District
Post 462 in Glen Rose (110.00%)
Post 235 in Burleson (97.44%)
Post 388 in Midlothian (92.68%)
Post 22 in Corsicana (89.21%)

8th District
Post 324 in Jersey Village (105.20%)
Post 127 in Tomball (88.52%)

11th District
Post 217 in Killeen (100%)
Post 526 in Holland (93.65%)

22nd District
Post 490 in Houston (124.04%)
Post 654 in Houston (85.05%)

That is basically all of the good news on membership.

The Division missed the 85% Target date by 2,268 members and is currently in 2nd place in the Department membership standings. Each district's numbers can be seen on the attached Division Membership summary.

Seventy four (74) Posts are below 80% of membership goal and 58 posts are below 70% of goal. 39 Posts have not turned in a transmittal in 30 days or more and 2 posts have had no activity this year.

The following 30 Posts (31.58% of the Division) have not recruited at least one new member this year. My question is WHY?

2nd District
465 Kirbyville
299 Woodville
197 Hemphill
616 Orange
250 Bridge City
104 Anahuac
255 Winnie
103 Sour Lake

6th District
235 Burleson
4 Hillsboro
137 Waxahachie
648 Rio Vista
288 Groesbeck

7th District
305 The Woodlands
640 Anderson
293 Rusk

8th District
324 Jersey Village
132 Humble
323 Baytown
578 Houston
397 Jacinto City

11th District
526 Holland
358 Rockdale
31 Marlin
349 Copperas Cove

22nd District
319 Deer Park
391 Houston
594 Houston
596 Houston
366 Katy

Looking at membership this year to date compared to last year shows the following: District 6 & 22 have a combined increase in membership of 561 members and the other 4 districts have a combined loss of 661 members.

As you recall I sent each commander a listing of expired 345 members that were available in the 2nd Division. I have not noticed any significant action in getting these members back on board. I am attaching it again. They are out there but we have to go get them. In most cases they don't come running to us.

Hope everyone finds these reports useful. They are not intended to be negative but to show commanders where we are, where our weak points are, and what we need to do to improve membership. You can you the district/division templates for breaking down a district to give commanders a better insight to their posts' membership.

If I can help, let me know.
