When the current Master came into office last July, he wrote to all Stationers encouraging each of us to persuade at least one person to join the Company. And he set himself the target of 100 new Freemen joining the Company during his year of office.
Progress has been good and I am pleased to report that, as at today, 62 new Freemen have joined since July 2016. This number includes the 12 new Freemen pictured above, all who joined in January this year.
However, although we need only another 38 to join between now and the end of June to achieve the Master's target, it is still going to be a very tough objective, as we have only three Freedom ceremonies between then and now.
It may be too late now to make a difference to how many new members join before July 2017; but, please, let's keep up the good work and keep encouraging more people to enjoy the benefits of membership that we all love so dearly.
