2014 Volunteer Recruitment Campaign and Incentive
With more than 6.7 million acres and counting of great elk country now protected or conserved, RMEF is without question one of the most successful wildlife organizations on the planet. Here is another fact without question: our success is a direct result of the commitment of our volunteers. They are truly the lifeblood of the outfit. And our outfit is growing.
RMEF now has more than 196,000 members— the fourth consecutive year of record membership. But now we must grow our volunteer base as well. Our 10,000 plus volunteers make up less than 1 percent of the active elk hunters in North America. Imagine what we could accomplish with 15,000 or even 20,000? Banquet proceeds far eclipse membership proceeds in supporting RMEF’s mission, so the size, health, strength and leadership of each chapter’s committee are vital to our success. New volunteers spread out the workload, keep burnout to a minimum, bring new ideas and new energy to committees while helping to foster future leadership.
We recognize that in order to grow our volunteer base we need to invest in it, so RMEF has developed a new Core Volunteer Campaign.
Here is how it works:
The campaign begins January 1, 2014 and ends December 31, 2014. Recruit or become a new volunteer during 2014 and you are automatically entered into the volunteer drawing. RMEF and our proud sponsors have put together tremendous prizes with 21 awesome gift packages. The prize packages include:
5 Eberlestock Team Elk Packs
8 Buck Knife Packages
5 Talon HD 10x42 Vortex Binoculars
5 Danner Boot Prize Packages
Coleman UTV as the Grand Prize
Prizes will be drawn on January 31, 2015 at the RMEF headquarters in Missoula, Montana. You need not be present to win.
With these outstanding prizes, we have now given you 21 more reasons to become or recruit a new volunteer with RMEF. Our goal is to recruit 750 new volunteers. Help us get there!
