Numbers Are In…

Down, down, UP, down, down, UP, down…. That’s where the numbers have trended over the past year. These relate to the numbers from Statewide Membership totals relative for November, January, March, May, July, September, and November. As you might be able to tell, as an organization, we depend on numbers and the support from those numbers. We all need to figure out what creates the upswings and what the hell triggers the downswings. So, here’s the rundown.

From November 2016 to this November our numbers dropped by (-155). There were (4) Districts that gained in Members and (4) Districts that lost in Members. Congratulations to District 6, who gained (+54) and to District 2, who gained (+51). This means that between the (4) Districts, that lost Members, there were (-256) Members lost. What’s going on? In the past year there were (18) Chapters that Gained Members and (28) that lost Members. There were (2) Chapters that remained neutral with no additions or losses. Top (5) Chapters, for the one year gains, are God’s Country & Monterey Pass (tied for first), Elk & Mason Dixon (tied for second), Lawrence & Patriot Riders (tied for third), Fayette in fourth, and Westmoreland in fifth.

Currently, the Top (5) Chapters are Mason Dixon (524), Erie (291), Westmoreland (197), Highlanders (195), and Keystone (194). Congratulations to all and Thank You for your continued devotions. Here is the rest of the story;

In the past two months, State Membership is down by (-66). There were (17) Chapters that gained Members, (26) Chapters that lost Members and (5) Chapters that remained neutral. The Top (5) growers, in the past two months, are Elk (+18), Fayette (+13), Mason Dixon (+9), Monterey Pass & Patriot Riders (+8) and Washington (+7). Keep up the great work!

We generate these number reviews every two (2) months. We provide them, in hard copy, at the Board Meetings and at the Grand Board meetings. These reviews are available to everyone, so see your District Reps or Chapter Coordinators and keep yourselves advised on where your Chapter is and which “swing” we are currently in. Maybe it’ll motivate some growth or maybe it will reinvigorate your energy for ABATE of PA and for what we stand for.

Peace, ride safe, and have a Merry Christmas.

PS. CHECK YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARDS FOR YOUR EXPIRATION DATE and renew if needed.
