Membership Drive Underway!
« on: July 13, 2013, 09:45:09 AM »
Last year, our goal was to have 1,000 members by our anniversary at the end of August.

This year, we are fairly close to having 1,500 members - only 79 newbies away!

1,438 members as of this morning!  I don't know if we'll get enough (real) new members to reach 1,500 by the end of August.  *crosses fingers*

Any suggestions on attracting new members?

Skate bag / zuca sticker anyone? What about designing some cute skating T-shirts with a skatingforums message ;D  It's really easy to order clothing / labels with custom artwork nowadays.

25 more members and we reach 1,500!  I don't think we'll make it by 8/31, but maybe in September or October of this year.

That's okay, what's more important is that we have an active, vibrant community to support and promote figure skating, especially adult figure skating.
