If yes, then you are eligible to join and let your voice be heard!
The FRA has the “Moving Forward” campaign which includes different programs that gives a member incentives to recruit/reinstate members. These programs include the following:
Recruit 3 Program
Recruit 5 Program
Recruit 10 Program
Recruit 24 Program

We need YOU to attend the Branch Meetings and help support the Branch. This can be done by recruiting, filling positions, chairing committees. This is key for Branch survival – otherwise we risk folding. If the FRA continues this downward trend – CONGRESS will see this and CUT our hard earned benefits. The FRA FIGHTS for all of us, we need to fight for the survival of the FRA!!!!!
