The $10,000 Sword Contest

Background

As the RMC Club of Canada, YOUR alumni association, continues its metamorphosis to becoming more responsive to the needs of its members, it continues to be challenged by funding pressures from drops in income from some of its major sources (e.g. lower interest levels from its investment fund).  A funding increase of just $10,000 annually would go a long way to providing a margin of breathing room to the Club, and allow it to focus on providing greater service to its members.

A Contest!

Because of this, the Club is launching “The $10,000 Sword Contest”.  We are looking for ideas from you the members to increase our annual recurring income by a net of $10,000, and are offering a Club sword as the prize for the best idea.  The winner can choose from one of 5 styles: Infantry Officer, Air Force Officer, Artillery Officer, Naval Officer, or Cavalry Officer.

Details

Submissions in writing should be made to the Executive Director of the Club by March 31, 2015, either by email (Bryan.Bailey@rmc.ca) or mail to Bryan Bailey, Executive Director, RMC Club of Canada, PO Box 17000, Stn Forces, Kingston, ON K7K 7B4.

They should include a detailed description of the concept, as well as a rough projection of its net income.

Judging will be done by a 3 person panel, including the the Club President, Executive Director, and the Club Treasurer.  The judging will be based on:

–          The likelihood of success

–          The simplicity/ease of implementation

–          The cost of implementation

–          The likelihood of recurring revenue

The winner will be announced by May 31, 2015.

All submissions become the property of the Club, and no financial gain will be attributed to the submitters, regardless of whether or not the idea(s) are implemented.
