June 2021 – A simple and often overlooked piece of helping new folks feel comfortable and welcomed in your chapter is nametags! If you’ve ever attended a Chapter Leadership Academy or Boot Camp, you know this is something we emphasize! Being able to engage in conversation with someone and easily refer to them by their name without having to fumble through the awkward situation of admitting you don’t remember it goes a surprisingly long way toward creating the welcoming environment we encourage in all of our chapters.
It’s difficult enough to remember fellow chapter members’ names when you only see them once a month but for many of us, it’s been much longer than that since we’ve seen each other. As chapters begin to gather in person again, having and wearing nametags will be more important than ever.
That’s why we offer not one, but two nametag solutions! Premium engraved nametags are available in two sizes with either pin or magnetic fasteners and up to three lines of text. These are available from Chapter 1095, so not only are you getting a quality product but you’re also helping to support another chapter! Prices are $8.49 for a small name tag (1”x3”) and $9.23 for the larger (1.5”x3.25”) size with a number of discounts available. You can order these nametags through the EAA website.
Our second offering is for economy nametags ordered directly from EAA. These credit card-sized nametags come packaged as a kit of 50 with magnet fasteners. The cost for one kit is $35, which includes shipping and personalization of chapter number, location, and division logo for divisional chapters. You will need to supply the labels on which you will print the names and then apply them to the nametags. To order these economy nametags, please call 1-800-564-6322.
