USWT CHALLENGE: Hop into Spring - April Membership Challenge

What does this mean to you? This means we need to try and hit our goals of recruitment and retaining our membership. What was our goal at the beginning of our year for membership for the United States? It was to maintain 75% retention and end our year with a membership number of base +2 by year end. USWT we have hit our goal of 75% retention so far. Great job. Now we must work on our goal of +2. We are so close of hitting that number. So this is the time to come together look at each of our states membership goals and how can we acheive that number together.

  • The first 5 members who recruit 5 members or more in the month of March or April (in one month) will be put in a drawing for $50.00 CASH from me in your efforts.
  • Any chapter that signs 5 or more new members in April will recieve $25.00 in CASH from me in your efforts.


Fellowship Builder Award

Have you heard about the Fellowship Builder Award that you can receive for your chapter? It is just a one page form for you to fill out and let MNWT MVP know how your chapter has had fun this year! If your chapter celebrated Friendship Day, and then had 3 or more events during the year which were social, your chapter qualifies! These events should be social…to get members to know each other better and have fun together. Right now off the top of my head I can think of many chapters that qualify for this award. Please fill out the form which is on the USWT website at and send it to and USWT MVP Nicky Anderson. The deadline to submit this form is May 1, 2014, so please send it by then.

Keep Collecting!

Emerge Mothers Academy Due to the New Beginnings closure, the Marketing Committee has replaced this year's Statewide Project Beneficiary. Although, we are truly saddened by the dissolution of New Beginnings, we are excited to introduce you to Emerging Mothers Academy. Their mission is very similar to NB, in that they are helping single mothers emerge as confident women and caring mothers.

Emerge Mothers Academy will gladly take all the items already collected for babies, even though they are focused more on the mothers, as opposed to the babies. Also the Bathroom Remodel will be changed to a Capital Campaign for Laptops & Printers for the EMA office. Since the organization is only two years old and they do not house mothers, that was the most likely solution we come up with to do with the donated monies.

For more information, please visit the Statewide Project webpage.
