LCI Coordinator Yvonne Paris:
LCI President Dr. Patti Hill is stressing membership growth with the newest program “Mission 1.5” which hopes to increase worldwide membership by 100,000 to 1.5 million.
The best way to accomplish increased membership is for every member to ‘replace themselves’ with a new member. This theory can perpetuate itself with each new member.
