Region "B" Chapter of The Year 2011

Congratulations Maryland Chapter “H”

Region “B” Chapter of The Year 2012
On behalf of the entire N.E. Region “B” we would like say “Thank You” for a job well done.
Under the very capable leadership of Sue Miller along with the staff and the entire membership of Md. H you have earned the prestigious title “Chapter of The Year”.
The title itself is a real honor and one you all should be proud of, but the real benefit of the Chapter of The Year Program is raising the level of enthusiasm and participation for all of the members. The more people get involved, the more FUN we all have.
Planning the events for the chapter is a lot of work, it takes time, effort and the combined cooperation of many people. Setting up chapter visits, dinner runs, ice cream trips as well as rides along twisting scenic roads are just a few of the things that the chapter staff must plan and expedite.
Every chapter holds ride meetings multiple times a year to insure all of it’s participants have FUN, stay safe and have good places to eat along the way.
After these meetings someone writes down the information and usually places it onto a calendar and or website for all to see.
Why not add a copy of that monthly schedule along with who attended and what happened along the way into a Chapter event diary.
Then at the end of the year all you have to do is make copies and transform the information onto the Chapter of The Year form and you are now a participating chapter that may be selected as the next District and or even Region Chapter of The Year. It is really that simple, the paperwork is not as hard to keep as many think.
In addition participation in all of these programs is simply the prescription for a “healthy chapter”.
You plant the seeds of enthusiasm, spread out some FUN to feed those seeds and the Chapter members will gather them up and turn them into bouquets of FUN.
We would also like to thank Mike and Shirley Prince, the Region Chapter of The Year Coordinators for all of their time and efforts in explaining and promoting the program throughout the entire Region “B”. 
As a result of their work and enthusiasm Region “B” has shown a major increase in participation within many of the Districts.
Next year please speak with your Chapter Director and staff and let them know you would like to see your chapter participate in the C.H.O.Y. Program.
If you need any guidance or have any questions feel free to visit the Region website and contact Mike and Shirley, they would love to hear from you.
Ride Safe! Have Fun!
Mike and Nancy Mandell
Region “B” Membership Enhancement Coordinators
