Program Dates: August 1 – September 30
Can your club add five new, dual, or reinstated members with a join date between August 1 and September 30? Accomplish this goal and you’ll qualify to receive a “Smedley Award” ribbon, named in honor of Ralph Smedley, which you can display on your club’s banner. Qualifying clubs can also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)
District 29 will also be giving an incentive for clubs that add five or more new or dual members during the Smedley Award timeframe. Each club that qualifies will receive 10 Guest Packets and one package of Ballots and Brief Evaluations for use in their club.
District 29 will reward five Guest Packets for each club that adds four new or dual members during the Smedley Award timeframe to get the Distinguished Club Program point for their club.
Applications and payments for members with a join date between August 1 and September 30 must be received at World Headquarters or online no later than September 30. The addition of transfer and charter members does not count toward “Smedley Award” credit. The winning clubs will be revealed online within a few weeks of the submission deadline.
