Gentlemen,
todays survey drew my attention to the new Recruitment Office webpage and the new YouTube Channel.
Both are an excellent addition to the club and I thank all who participated in making them happen.

General Hecht <salute>

First I am very pleased with your feedback. Second, the largest part of the credit for this effort should land in the account of our new RO, Colonel Strickler.

An amazing state of the art effort (I know from experience how much work went into the All About the ACWGC video) he has made here and I salute him for it. He has put our Club in the market to attract a new generation of members.

We have turned a corner or gained a pass, whatever metaphor or analogy you choose is applicable here.

Go ACWGC Team go.

Thank you, sirs!

Just FYI the recruitment office is hiring! We established it as a salaried position of $22,500 a year per ACWGC Member in the office. Kind of like any part time job. Our main tasks include linking us to other like-minded Civil War groups and trying to 'spread the good word!' about the Club.

Office duties are light and require a working knowledge of Facebook. Feel free to private message me if interested! And that goes for anyone reading this.

The salary is paid monthly in Confederate currency redeemable at any Confederate Bank in your state. I admit the terms of pay are not ideal but Walt was inflexible on this point. I am still pushing for Gold coins in lieu of CSA paper money and I was told something about switching to pyrite nuggets which I can only assume is a step up.

Good video. Wonder if it could be posted on some board game sites like consimworld to attract the interest of board wargamers.

YouTube site looks good and the Introduction video was very well done. I've subscribed [first time I've ever subscribed] so keep up the great work.
For attracting the interest of boardgamers you could also try BoardGameGeek https://www.boardgamegeek.com/.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will add those to my list of websites/clubs/groups to check out.

Once I got started, it was so hard to stop. I had to take the time to go through all the new recruitment pages because they are superb. Colonel Blake, my hat is off to you for your effort! I will be thinking about it as the ad interim CoA of the Union Armies and will have some thoughts to send to you in a few days when I'm back at my desk.
Truly excellent job, sir!

I concur the website and YouTube stuff if of a very high standard, well done Suh. I did not check out the BookFace as I do not use it and my wife did not seem that keen to join. I will stand you a few few beers at the Vicksburg Tavern in recognition.
