For individual patrols, several suggestions: Spokane National Ski Patrol.

Best Alumni practices sought! The Eastern Sierra Region does an annual Alumni Reunion, a number of patrols in the Far West Division work hard to involve their alumni in patrol affairs and patrol activities/celebrations (see next page!), and several FWD alumni are regulars at such annual off-hill activities like the Sea Otter Bike Classic each year. Of course, the questions remain: how do we retain patrollers as alumni members of the NSP (rather than just dropping out ), how do we involve them in patrol and/or regional activities; can we use their skills to mentor newer patrollers? I am sure you have more questions or thoughts. Please share your best programs and success stories with Tim Viall, FWD Alumni Advisor (and FWD Newsletter Editor), We will compile the best ideas, top programs and events that worked like crazy, and tap the National office for their advice, as well. Watch for an article in future issues of News and Views. Renew alumni dues on-line! Alumni members; renew your NSP Dues on-line. I have had this question come up several times recently can I renew my Alumni Membership on-line? Here's how to do it; an Alumni member merely: a) Logs into the NSP web site, with member number and your Password, then, b) At top, upper right where it will say "Hi, (member name)" - merely click on that icon, and it takes you to your My Profile page, then, at bottom left of the Profile, click on the "Renew Now" button, and it allows you to pay with a choice of credit cards, Pay Pal and the like. It works; I just did that, myself. Submitted by Tim Viall, FWD Alumni Advisor FWD News and Views, December, 2016 Check the new FWD web site: Page 15
