Attention all APS Chapters!: Are you up for the challenge?


APS Chapter Challenge Details:

Between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019 APS will provide an extra $5 payment for each new member for any chapter that sponsors 10 or more new members. Payments will be made in July 2019.  

In addition, cash prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 will be offered to the three chapters who recruit the most APS members (minimum of 25 required to qualify).

Who Counts?

Any individual who joins the APS as a regular or life member between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019 and has not been an APS member during the previous three years.  Associate members and conversions from regular to life membership do not count.  Reinstatements of individuals who were last members of the APS more than three years ago will count toward the total number of members sponsored but no recruiting credit or bonus $5 payment is provided for reinstated members.

Chapters may solicit new members directly or send names and addresses of prospective members to APS for solicitation.  Each new member may only be credited to a single club.  The first party to refer an individual as a potential member gets the credit for being their sponsor.

Results will be announced at the APS General Meeting at StampShow 2019 on August 3 in Omaha, Nebraska.
