REPORT FROM MEMBERSHIP COORDINATOR
This month marks the anniversary of our first chapter
meeting. We are proud that we NOW have 68 dues paid
members and a full year's action and consciousness
raising to our credit.
But we need more -- more members, more actions, more
consciousness raising. What can you do? Become a
"membership committee" of one. Members receive an
updated membership list every month. This month we
have printed our "potentials" list on the back -
people who in one way or antoher have shown interest
in joining our chapter - people we have been sending
the newsletter to. Our fond hope is that members will
use this list to recruit at least one new member.
Look it over for people you know who may need just
that little extra - a personal invitation - to join
up. And don't forget to ask your instructors,
friends on the staff and other students to join. NOW
is an equal opportunity "employer"! As you can see

this work. Please call RossAnn Daumas for further
information, or come to the next Business Meeting,
