2015 was a monumental year for the USBG: It welcomed two new Observing chapters. It witnessed three other chapters expand to more than 400 members each. And it surpassed its previous goal of reaching over 6,000 members nationally!
If you have ever had the pleasure of laying the crucial foundation for starting a new chapter, then you know just how much work goes into getting those first 40 members to actually sign up and become real members.
Join us in congratulating the newly-appointed Observing chapters:
VT-Green Mountain and Greater Baton Rouge
