7. FLC COMMUNITY SERVICE NIGHT

We are excited for the upcoming Community Service Night at FLC! Play this YouTube video created by team Unite to learn why. The flyer we sent you includes suggestions, but we wanted to include some budget-friendly items that would be great additions to the Treehouse list:

* Stationary
* Good book
* Make up bag
* Fun dress socks
* Board games / card games
* Casual jewelry
* Neck ties / scarves
* Hair accessories and products
* Nail polish
* Lotions / body wash

8. MEMBERSHIP RECOGNITION AT FLC / CUT-OFF DATE

Will your chapter’s name be scrolled on screen at the FLC morning General Session?

We will recognize the largest chapter and largest percentage growth chapter overall and by Area, as of October 27. Get those members registered, and watch for the reveal on October 30!

9. MEMBERSHIP DATA SO FAR / LAST YEAR’S ALLOCATIONS.

As of today, we have 5,391 submitted members and 1,355 unsubmitted members.

Last year on this date, we had 6,365 submitted members.

I’ve attached a list of chapters with unsubmitted members. Some of you intentionally haven’t submitted yet, which is fine, but it is easy to miss that last step of clicking on the Submit Membership tab, so I wanted to give you a heads up.

- Please let me know if you need help submitting members.

- You always can add more members after you’ve submitted a batch.

- November 15 at 5:00 p.m. is the deadline to submit members for area allocations.

- Attached are the membership numbers and area allocations from last year on November 15.

- After November 15, you are encouraged to continue to add members—they just won’t count toward the allocations.

10. FORM B

This year, we hoped to collect all the Form Bs from all advisors by October 5, regardless of who is/isn’t attending FLC (one less thing to worry about later). Let’s keep working on it!

Attached is a checklist showing:

a. Advisors I’ve received Form B from.

b. Advisors who have initiated the process, but one or more of their administrators haven’t signed yet (so I haven’t received it). Let me know if you’d like me to re-send.

c. Advisors who haven’t initiated the process yet. Click Here to initiate the form. Instructions are attached.

d. Advisors who are attending FLC, which makes it urgent to get your Form B to me right away.
