QBARS - v19n3 Tacoma Wins Membership Contest

Tacoma Wins Membership Contest

By getting 80 new members, while losing only 19 of the 1964 members, Tacoma Chapter boosted its membership to 158, an increase of 62.9% over the previous year. This will bring the Chapter $100 worth of rhododendron plants. Princeton Chapter had a net increase of 44.4% and the Indianapolis Chapter increased 40.0%. Unfortunately some Chapters showed net losses although usually small. The net gain for the Society as a whole, as of July 1, was 4.4%. Getting 80 new members is not particularly easy. Someone must have worked hard. Congratulations to the Tacoma Chapter and all who had a part in its excellent growth.
