When you think of the month of March, what comes to mind? Spring and warmer weather? St. Patrick’s Day and green beer? Money the IRS owes you? Money you owe the IRS? March Madness?
Well, yes, there is that March Madness, the one where you have to fill out all those brackets and figure out the progression of wins and losses of 64 teams. So much work, and so hard to win any money.
The MMS (Monthly Monetary Support) committee is going to hold a little March Madness of its own. It will be held during the five days of the ACB Leadership Conference, from March 11th through the 15th. Obviously, it’ll be on a much smaller scale than the NCAA, but it’s a lot easier to win something and will take a lot less time.
All you have to do is call (202) 743-0755 and leave a message or email [email protected] any time during the conference, sign up for MMS with at least a $10 a month donation or increase what you’re already giving by $5, and we’ll enter your name in daily drawings for Amazon gift cards. The first four days the cards will be worth $25, and the last day we’ll draw for a $100 card. If you’ve signed up or increased your donation since the end of last summer’s convention, your name will be entered in that final drawing.
Your monthly donation is deducted from your checking account or charged to a credit card; you choose, and 50 percent of what you donate can go back to an affiliate of your choice. Your money helps ACB in so many ways: advocacy, membership services, and community events, just to name a few, and it’s such an easy way to raise funds for your affiliate.
So once again, call (202) 743-0755 and leave a message, or email [email protected] during the five days of the ACB Leadership Conference, March 11-15, and we’ll get back to you to answer your questions and/or accept your donations. ACB thanks you, and we, the MMS committee, do too. And if you should by chance win some money in that BIG March Madness, good for you, and we hope you’ll remember ACB!
