Default IV campaign: Add A Member Campaign


3/30/2007 Update:

Hi IV'ers,

Today IV is a 10000 member organization!
Thank you everyone who participated in the campaign!

Three important next steps:

1. Let us all (every member), start and continue working on the IV action items such as "Meet your Lawmakers", "Call Lawmakers", etc. If we can do these now, we will definitely be able to influence the upcoming votes in the House and Senate on the immigration bills. And these bills are coming pretty soon (in a matter of weeks). So now is the time to act!

2. Let us all contribute as much as possible now. OUr donations will help IV in its lobbying effort. The more financially strong IV is, the better it can work support on the hill.

3. Last but not the least, we cannot stop at 10000. The stronger our numbers are, the more effective we can be (both in campaigns, as well as financially). So I am upping the target here. Please help introduce ONE member to IV by the end of April. If everyone of us added just ONE member by end of April 2007, we would be a 20000 member strong team.

20000 might look daunting, but's it's really not every individual just took care of his one member.

ADD ONE MEMBER BY APRIL 30, 2007!

Thank you.




Hi IV members!

I know many of us have been toying with ideas to increase membership. I wanted to start a separate thread just to highlight the following idea - Every member bring one additional member to IV.

Specifically, these are the bullet points I suggest:

1. By December 31, each of you bring one member to IV.
If you really think about it, it is not a difficult task. Every one of us knows atleast one person stuck in GC process, that is talking conservatively. It takes less than 15 minutes to call one person and explain IVs efforts and request his/her support.

2. By January 15, each of us take responsibility to get the member we brought to IV to contribute to the cause. And I am not suggesting any particular amount.

3. Each of us take responsibility in having them update their information on IV website, so that when the need arises, they can be contacted (for sending webfaxes etc. like last week).

Also, whenever you bring someone to IV, please post on this thread (it will encourage others). I feel this approach will work, if we keep this thread alive, and try to stick to the time deadline (deadlines might not have worked before, because they were too long term).

Also, please keep this thread on track, without any other discussions.

So IV'ers, lets add ONE member, and get ONE contribution!!!!

Thank you.
Neelu

I think my efforts last week resulted in adding 4 new members. I will be contacting 10 others and actually sitting down with them to help them become a IV member. I will post as soon as I register one more member.

Neelu:

Thank you so much for bringing forth this thought and initiative!

This is exactly the kind of drive we seek from most members. It is vital for us to increase our membership levels to sustain our efforts. The more we are the stonger our voice will be.

This is what is needed guys, we added 1000 + members in just 2 days last week. We can definately add 5000 more members in the next 15 days.

If IV leadership core wants us to add members and raise funds, thats what we should do. If you have ideas, please send PM to IV Core.

Atleast add one new member till dec31st. Fellow IV members, If you CAN Contribute brilliant ideas and discuss a lot of options/ideas, why cant you add atleast one new member. Its all empty talk otherwise. We can do it together.

Very Important and crucial for days like last weekend.
