In my time as membership manager, it occurred to me that the best way to grow and strengthen our organization is to make sure that every local is ready to receive and involve incoming members. And as locals liaison, my mission would be connect all the local groups, improve outreach and assist in making sure current and new members have an active role within the party. However, I would be counting on all GPMI officers to aid in this mission. I’m ready to do my part! Thank you!
