i. We need to start tracking how many NRA members we currently have. This will be asked on the application form. Members will need to list their NRA member number on our application.
ii. Encourage COGC members to become NRA members. Let them know that we can get range grants.
iii. Dave has the ability to sign up NRA members on behalf of the NRA and he can renew NRA memberships as well. As a bonus, for every NRA member our club signs up, we get $10.
iv. In 2-3 years we, as a club, will REQUIRE NRA membership. When we require it, we will knock $10 off their COGC registration if they join/renew NRA membership through COGC.
b. Sheriff’s office dues are due. Craig will locate the exact amount of their dues and send them an invoice. ALL deputies and the sheriff must sign the club waiver and be placed on the club membership list individually.
2) Membership drive
a. It was decided that it is too soon to do a membership drive. We first need to make some range improvements and get the legalities of the club in order before we can do a membership drive. When we are able to do a membership drive, we have the options of:
i. Doing a mailing to the entire county. Mailing cost is $543.43
ii. Free day at the range – open to the public – try to get more members.
3) Lifetime memberships are available. The cost is $750 upfront.
4) Keeping the membership list up to date: Gayle has updated and improved the membership list. She will upload the document to Google Docs and send the link to Dave so they can coordinate new members and have a master list. This way the list will always be up to date and won’t get scrambled like it did in the past. Dave and Gayle are the only people who can access the list. If we want to allow others in, we can, but folks can just get in there without permission.
Next meeting will be in February.
