    Off to the races!

    The flag has dropped for the “Race to 100” – the Alliance’s national grassroots advocacy initiative to secure 100 co-sponsors for our “Fraternal Resolution” (officially known as H.Con.Res. 19).

    Late last week the Alliance sent this bulletin to the leaders of each of its U.S.-domiciled member societies briefing them on the program and encouraging them to engage their societies key audiences – employees, local chapter leaders, field representatives, and individual members – in this important advocacy campaign.

    The two-part project begins with societies educating these audiences on the value of the fraternal tax exemption and the importance of participation in the political process.  We’ve provided members with a variety of tools to help them accomplish this objective, including the Alliance grassroots video that makes it easy for you to prepare your grassroots networks to take action early in 2016.

    The on-line outreach campaign will begin in February and we’re hoping that thousands of emails from fraternal constituents coupled with Capitol Hill and in-district visits from Alliance leaders will push us over the 100 co-sponsor goal by July 2016.  As of today, we have 62 co-sponsors, so the 100 co-sponsor goal is within reach if every Alliance member does its part.

    We’ve designed this effort to make it easy, enjoyable, and fulfilling for member societies to participate in a grassroots campaign that is important to the future of EVERY society.  We’ve all got a stake in the outcome of future tax reform debates, and the time to make our case and secure support from a broad cross-section of members of Congress is now – before serious discussion over tax reform proposals begin.present

    You’ll be hearing much more about this initiative from the Alliance in the coming weeks.  Give your society an early Christmas present by committing to participate in the “Race to 100” campaign.
