From William J. Murphy III. Detachment Commander

To:  Officers and Chairmen, Detachment of Massachusetts

As we being our home stretch of another dedicated year of service to the Sons of The American Legion, we need to take a few moments and focus on 2 very pressing issues...
 
The first, of course, is membership.  As of Friday, April 24th, our Detachment membership report showed 90.89%.  With our 100% target date fast approaching on May 12th, it is important that all of us take a moment and look at certain aspects of the report.  First, that 90.89% shows only a renewal rate of 79%.  That tells us more than 20% of our membership has not chosen to renew or is just in need of that one more phone call.  Also, notable in that membership report is 40 of our squadrons have achieved 100% or greater, 2 of which have increased their membership by 118 members in total.  They deserve congratulations.  However, 32 squadrons are behind at least 10 members and 26 have not transmitted to the Department Office since February 1.  Let us take a few minutes, contact those squadrons in our regions, and see if there is anything that we can do to help them reach their 100% goal!
 
The second is, when speaking with squadron contacts, remind them of the importance of the Consolidated Report Form.  If they have not completed the form, encourage them and stress the benefit of our more complete statewide report.  We could always try a method indicated by National Commander Helm, his department/district officers call posts who have not reported, and at least get a partial report verbally.  Can't hurt to try!
 
Once again, thank you for your hard work and dedication.  Let's all try to come to our Convention and show great numbers and great reports and great Squadron achievements that we can all be truly proud of!

MEMBERSHIP
Attached is a membership report as of May 1, 2015. The next cutoff date for National is  May 12, 2015. This is the most important date of the year. This is the date that is used to produce the 2016 Pre Printed Membership Cards. It is extremely important to get as many renewals in as possible and transmit any new member cards so the cards for 2016 can be processed properly. We are asking to have your  next transmittal of membership sent to the State House by the end of this week so they can prepare them to send to Indianapolis. I know this is a short time fro today but make your best effort to send in as many cards as possible.
 
CONSOLIDATED REPORT FORMS
  I have only received seven reports so far. This is the most important form that we ask for from all of you each year. I know every Squadron has done some type of service that is on the form. Please send these in so we can show everyone all the good work we are doing across Massachusetts.
 
CONVENTION REGISTRATION FORMS
So far I have only received registration forms from three Squadrons. There is a lot of planning that goes into putting the convention together so please get these forms in ASAP.

Nationwide Sons of The American Legion on Facebook site

The American Legion National Headquarters in Indianapolis developed the website to mimic myLegion.org, which assists post, district and county officers with their membership needs.

Click on Image for informaton of this exciting program 

Sons of The American Legion squadron adjutants and officers now have access to membership information, reports and electronic membership tools at www.mySAL.org.

The new mySAL.org site allows members to:
  • Search for members by name or ID number
  • See payment history for all members
  • Find contact information for all members
  • View, download and print rosters of current, expired, deceased, undeliverable and current-paid membership
  • View and edit squadron membership information
  • Locate a squadron
To access mySAL.org, download the registration form here. The form requires approval signatures from both the squadron and post adjutants before it’s sent to National Headquarters. Once national staff verify officer signatures and receive approval from the department, they will email instructions on how to create a mySAL.org account that requires a username and password.
