March 2016 Membership Drive

We are having our 11th annual March Membership Drive!! Our goal is 250! new and renewal memberships during the month of March. Last years drive brought in 241 total memberships and renewals! Everyone who joins or renews during March will be entered into a drawing, plus we're having a chapter contest to see which chapter can have the most new and renewal memberships.

March Membership Drive Raffle

will be giving away 3 different prizes this year. I will start to announce the prizes on or about Monday March 7th! Everyone who joins and everyone who renews their membership during the month of March will be automatically entered into the raffle. Once all the memberships that are received during the month are properly logged in, we'll draw to see who the lucky winners will be. Each of the three prizes will be purchased from vendors and have an approximate value of over $300 or more! Once again we have some great prizes picked out this year.



Chapter Contest

We need all the help we can get from members and chapters to reach our goal of 250 new and renewal memberships. So, to make it more fun, we're again having a contest to see which chapter can bring in the most memberships, this will be percentage based so that all the chapters will have a fair advantage to win. The chapter with the most new and renewal memberships (percentage) in their geographical area will be the winner. The winning chapter will receive the prize listed below to be used in a raffle of their own, plus being known as the Big Dog chapter that kicked ass and got the job done.

So, if you are thinking about joining or renewing or know someone who has been thinking about renewing or joining there is no better time that the present!

click here to sign up or renew

The event starts March 1, 2016

Please note: If you renew in March, you will be entered into the drawing. If you don't expire til sometime in the future, your current membership will be extended. There's no reason that everyone shouldn't be signing up or renewing in March!

If paying by check please PM membership to ensure being entered into the drawing.

Re: March 2016 Membership Drive

Here is my 2015 open letter to members and sponsors:

Open letter to members and sponsors.

First and foremost, thank you for supporting by being a member and/or a sponsor. is 17 years old and could not be what it is today without the support of everyone that’s been in involved.

It has been my pleasure serving the past three years as president.

2015 was another very successful year for . In January, turned 16 years old. National gave $5000 to the Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC) in November in Las Vegas. The chapters have contributed in helping with land use efforts from helping to upgrade trail markers, to buying an auger for trail work, to giving financially to support public lands, and even helping to back a land use foundation that was started years ago, with a donation from .

In 2015 we reorganized how we memorialized our members that have passed. We now have a roster specifically to remember those who have gone before us and we even added several folks that we were made aware of, so that they would not be forgotten. We lost a few members in 2015 and we remember them for their contributions to over the years.

We remember Andy "Andy Steiner" Steiner, Don "Woody" Woodward, Pete "Over2land" Trasborg, and Aaron "FlexdXJ" Thompson.

In 2015, we worked to upgrade our server. The new admin team researched what they believe to be the best option for . That server has been purchased and we look to have it online in January of 2016. My hope is to add some cool new features and options to the website in 2016. We are looking at bringing the very popular chat option back and bringing back the store to make it more accessible. We are looking at better access from mobile devices and maybe even doing some reorganization of forums. It’s been a long transition and I hope to see some fun, new things in 2016.

In 2015, we looked to expand our social media presence. We have tried to make our facebook page more active and even has a twitter account (@naxja_org). If you aren't following us, please do so!

Membership was up in 2015 over 2014. Membership averaged a very high success rate with getting packets out in a timely manner in 2015. I believe we stayed within a two week time frame or less in getting packets out. Please remember when you sign up or renew to make sure that your Paypal address is up to date. If it's not, please PM membership.

Another busy year is in store for us in 2016. Events for 2016 are already being planning by the chapters. We have great sponsors and great items for raffles at the chapter events throughout the year. Please visit our sponsor forums and support those who support us. I hope to see you on the trail this year at an event in 2016!

As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns about and what is going on please feel free to PM, email, text or call me or any member of the BOD.

Thank you!
Matt 'macgyvr' Rowland
president
