Join Bridge Winners
Motions before the Memphis BoD: Item 191-22

Item 191-22: Recognition for Top New Member Recruiters of the Year the ACBL shall reward individuals with a $700 credit toward bridge entries at the Fall NABC Tournament for outstanding performance in the recruitment of new members.

To determine the individual recruitment winners, the ACBL units will be divided into three groups as follows: 1) The Units with the greatest membership such that the sum of the membership of the Units in this group represent 33% of the ACBL membership total (Group 1). 2) The next Units with the greatest membership such that the sum of membership in these Units and those in group 1 represent 67% of the ACBL total membership (Group 2). 3) All remaining Units (Group 3). 4) Unit population will be based on the membership rolls as of the first of the month in which the Summer NABC for that year begin. Note: It is assumed that the number of Units in Group 3 will be greater than the number of Units in Group 2, which will be greater than the number of Units in Group 1.

The number of awards given will always be a multiple of 4, with the goal being that 20 recipients will be recognized. However, if this number if deemed too expensive, then 16, 12, 8 or 4 members will receive awards as determined by the ACBL Board of Directors based on total annual recruitment and the financial health of the ACBL.

Assuming the number of awards is set at 20, they will be given as follows 1) 5 awards will be given to the 5 individuals that recruit the most new members, independent of which Unit these recipients are from. Because of greater opportunity, it is assumed that all 5 will most likely come from Group 1. (Note: if 16 awards are to be given, then they will go to the top 4 individuals who recruit the most members, if 12, then top 3, etc.) 2) If one of the top 5 (or 4, if 16 awards, etc.) recruiting individuals does not come from Group 1, then the individual in Group 1 who recruited the fifth most members will receive an award, etc. 3) Except in the case of a tie, in no case will more than 5 (or 4, if 16 awards, etc.) recipients who reside in Units in Group 1 receive an award. 4) The top 5 (or 4, if 16 awards, etc.) individuals who recruited the most members from Units in Group 2 will receive an award. 5) The top 5 (or 4, if 16 awards, etc.) individuals who recruited the most members from Units in Group 3 will receive an award. 6) Based on total number of recruits, the next 5 (or 4, if 16 awards, etc.) members who recruited the most members who reside in either Group 2 or Group 3 will receive an award. 7) If there is a tie for number of recruits for the last position in any of the three Groups, all members tied for the last place will receive the award. 8) In no case may one individual receive more than one recruitment award in a given year. If one person qualifies, according to this formula, to receive more than one award, that award will go to the top non-recipient in that Group. 9) The credits may not be converted to cash.10) Credits expire with the Fall NABC and do not carry over to future tournaments. Optional amendment to be voted on separately: Moved that: 1) Recipients of the awards shall be permitted to transfer their credits to another person if they are unable to attend the Fall NABC. 2) If the credits are transferred to another person, that person must be a paid-up member of the ACBL during the Fall NABC. 3) If transferred, the credits must be transferred in their entirety. They may not be shared among several individuals nor may they be transferred to someone else once the honoree has begun using them. Effective immediately

I think this speaks for itself.
