Why Does Membership Matter?
Members = Delegates = Voting Power. ARC of Oswego County is one of many Chapters in New York State affiliated with NYSARC, and across the country affiliated with the Arc of the USA. The more members our chapter has, the more delegates and votes we earn for discussions involving state and local policy, and the greater our voice in advocating for the individuals we serve.
Members = Voters = Getting Heard. Politicians pay attention to numbers. When we tell a senator, congressman, or assemblyman that over 500 of his voters are members of our ARC Chapter, they are more likely to listen to what we have to say.
Members = Supporters = New Donors. With government funding being cut dramatically; we need to increase donations from the community.
Every Member Counts…and We Count Every Member!
