I have personally adhered to this rule - personally sign up one member a month! So far, I have been able to exceed this goal, in spite of my mysanthropic tendencies and overly abrasive personality (or so I am told ). GCO needs more members if it ever hopes to equal the influence of the 800 lb gorilla (which shall remain nameless). Our growth so far has been far better than I expected, but if there is one thing that will affect GCO's chances of success in 2008, it is members. When it comes right down to it, legislators care about votes. Numbers = votes. That is what happened in 2007 with HB 89. The 800 lb gorilla was able to kill it over our objection because the 800 lb gorilla can scare the out of legislators. Why? Numbers. So, I resolve to shoot for signing up at least one member each month. I hope you will, too. $15 annually is meant to make finances an irrelevant consideration in the decision. If there is anything we can do to help, like business cards, flyers, speakers for your event, please let us tle-.
