TSM MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL - JANUARY 1-31, 2018

A reminder regarding our upcoming membership recruitment and renewal period. No matter the date you joined, ALL TSM members must renew their membership annually. THESE MEMBERSHIP/MEDICAL FORMS PROVIDE TSM WITH LIABILITY INSURANCE FOR PROGRAMS. New membership cards will be distributed to all members. Upon receipt of your membership/medical release form and $25* annual fee, you will receive a membership confirmation and begin receiving member information.

*The $25 will help offset a portion of our ongoing operating expenses including membership to our national organization, insurances, storage/maintenance of equipment, website hosting, postal services, etc. and allow us to continue to offer the variety of programming we enjoy.

*NO MEMBER will be turned away due to financial hardship. Let us know if you need special consideration.

TSM Fitbit Group

Gail Bliss has started a TEAMSurvivor FitbIt group. The idea of the group is to help motivate each other to keep being active. The group is private so you have to be invited to join the group. The group will see only what you set for the group to see. What we see presently is the steps only of the groups 5 members. Steps for the last 7 calendar days are posted along with the number of active minutes. Send a request to Gail (gail3511@gmail.com) or myself (Susan Reed, greed@chorus.net)) and we will send you an invitation. Follow the instructions on the email, log into your dashboard and click on the “community” tab to see TEAMSurvivor Madison (WI). Click on that to see the members and their steps! We can set up challenges as added little incentives to stay active!

Why Not Ask!

As an all volunteer, member-driven, and member-led organization, we look to you to help brainstorm or solve a current need. The best way to find out if you can help, is to ask. Current needs for the organization:

Business services for the TSM office. Do you know a local business/data/internet provider that may be willing to donate or offer reduced rate services? Does your employer offer something like this to non-profits? This would allow TSM to set-up business operations at our office.


If you have leads on any of the above, please email TEAMSurvivor with details. THANKS!
