From Your Chapter President
Once again the Sunshine Chapter demonstrates that it is one of the best organizations in AUSA. After having achieved Best Chapter or Runner Up for more than six years in the under 900 member category, AUSA bumped us up to the 900-1500 member category for the operational year of July 2013 to June 2014. Despite going up against perennial powerhouse chapters like Hawaii, Los Angeles and Meriwether-Lewis, the Sunshine Chapter achieved runner up distinction right behind Meriwether-Lewis. Thanks to the strong leadership team headed up by Debbie Berry and an outstanding chapter membership, the Sunshine Chapter met the challenge head on.
The list of awards and streamers is shown below and when compared to the Best Chapter in our category the only two areas that Meriwether-Lewis came out ahead are in “greatest percentage increase in individual and corporate memberships.” Considering our membership goals were raised without any adjustments to our geographical coverage (i.e. Central Florida) it only reinforces the fact that the Sunshine Chapter is indeed a high performing organization. It happens because the leadership team is continuously engaged with the chapter membership and the military organizations that we support here in Central Florida.
