All Preppers, Please read this entire post and then respond. This is the General APN Roll Call, and is slightly different than the State Roll Calls, as we are also offering a giveaway contest with several prizes.
These Network-Wide Roll calls only happen a few times a year and serve a few purposes. They remind people that haven’t been to the forum in awhile to come back and check us out and see what’s new, plus they also serve as a membership drive. But it’s much more than that. They help you, our members, to better network with each other. Members who haven’t been back in awhile can reconnect with members that are still active. New members can network with more experienced members, and members who’ve been trying to start meetup groups and get-togethers have a better opportunity to connect with each other. But most of all, there is a huge brainstorm of tips, ideas and information that we all share with each other.
Please respond to the forum Roll Call and let us know what you’ve been doing to prepare lately. Share any tips, ideas or educational information that you might have for others. The information you share is especially helpful to new members who are checking in. Here is the link to the Roll Call:
In addition to responding to the roll call, please also respond to your states group and check to see if there are any new meetup plans.
To respond to your states roll call, follow this link to the state directory:
Then click the “Check In Here” link for your state and respond to the most recent Roll Call.
Don’t forget to check back to your state group regularly so you can interact with fellow members. This is very important, checking in frequently will ensure that you don’t miss any new members. If you are interested in starting or joining a meetup, be sure to check into your state meetup section as well.
*Update, We now have a video that shows you step by step how to join your states usergroup and add your state tag to your avatar. Please watch the following video
