An appeal for Help for the New Member Tailgate Party, from Chapter President Kevin George

Your membership committee has been working hard to organize a membership drive event. Referred to the New Member Tailgate Party, the event will be held on Thursday, October 23rd, from 4Pm to 8 PM, at Dave and Buster's in Hilliard. The Board has approved a substantial expenditure to show their commitment to this event.  Our goal is to increase our professional membership and network so we need everyone’s assistance.

To attract participation for the event, we have purchased (2) OSU vs. Michigan tickets to be raffled off that evening. Professional members will receive one raffle ticket for attending and an additional ticket for every non-member FM you bring to the event. Associate members will receive a raffle ticket for each FM they bring.

The Chapter will be providing food, non-alcoholic beverages and a game card. There will be “challenge games” for all to participate in and win prizes.

Use your professional network and contacts to ask non-member FMs and your favorite vendors to be your guest at the event. Download and email or print the flyer and distribute to potential new members. We want this to be a successful event with the opportunity to promote the benefits of being a member of our chapter to as many folks as possible.

If you need more information, contact Jessica Hood at jessica.hood@directenergy.com.

See you there and your guests on the 23rd.
