This NAACP National Membership Office’s contest awarded the top membership producing (in a 45 day period) Adult Unit and Youth & College Units. Regional winners included the Howard County Youth Council, a unit in the Maryland State Conference.

“I am very happy about our council winning the Greater Than 2010: Raise the Base contest,” stated Cameron M.
