Member Relations

Glue, baby, glue!  We help everyone stick together.  First, we recruit new members and tell them about our exceptional organization #blessed. Then, we create smaller socials where newer members can start connecting. Lastly, we complete the circle by facilitating interactions and connections within the member body so that all the great members of our organization stick together.
