Big Hat Club
A little bit of history...
The Big Hat Club is an honor group within the AMBUCS association. It was started by Past National President Charles E. Mitchell during his term at the June 18, 1939, executive board meeting. The idea was to present a shirt to each AMBUC able to recruit at least three new members in a 12-month period. The concept was to create incentive to bringing in new AMBUC members. The individual who brought in the most new members would receive the "Rabbit Trophy"! Fortunately, at the July 2 meeting it was decided to award a ten-gallon hat instead and recipients would form a Big Hat Club.
These special, fun-loving members are the backbone of AMBUCS and provide leadership in recruiting new members and supporting the AMBUCS mission.
A Message from National Big Hat President...
It was a wonderful National Conference and very profitable Big Hat auction in Oklahoma City this past July! Your National Board changed it up a bit which proved to be a huge success! So let’s mix it up a little more this year and see if we can have even more fun, raise more money and bring in more new members in the 2012-2013 AMBUC year!
So here’s to mixing it up, raising more money, bringing in more members and finally… Having a whole lot more fun! THAT’S WHAT WE DO! I’m excited and proud to serve as your National Big Hat President! Thank you for the opportunity
