Membership Incentive for new, reinstated discontinued

At the September 21, 2017, Texas Federation (TF) Executive Board (EB) meeting, the 2017-2019 EB reviewed the Membership Incentive program voted on by the previous EB at the May Convention and voted to discontinue it effective June 1, 2017.  

The former program paid chapters $10 for each new member to their chapter and $5 for each reinstated member.  However, it was not an incentive.  In many cases the new members were recruited by other chapters that received nothing, and the reinstatement feature encouraged chapters to let member lapse instead of renewing in a timely fastion.

The Dues Withholding incentive has proven to be a good recruiting and retention tool and is continued.
