It's our Spring Member Drive and we've got a little challenge for you: Can your state gain the most new members this week?

Strong Towns is proud to have members from all 50 states and several Canadian provinces. That geographic diversity is part of what makes our mission and our movement so powerful.

But now we want to see how many new members will join us from these places. Throughout this week, we'll be checking in to update you on the stats and on Friday, we'll share the top 5 states that have gained the most members.

Here are 3 ways you can participate in the challenge:

1. Become a member! That's the biggest way you can help the Strong Towns movement, plus nudge your state up in this rivalry.

2. Invite your neighbors to become membersAfter you've joined, get your neighbors, friends, co-workers and any other fellow residents who care about the Strong Towns mission on board.

3. Share this on social media. Share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, whatever you like... The more people that see our message, the more that will be compelled to join.

For the curious, here are the states that currently have the most Strong Towns members:

  1. California
  2. Texas
  3. Minnesota
  4. Florida
  5. New York

No big surprises on that list; it's mostly correlated with population... But now we wipe the slate clean to track where new members are joining from.

I just checked our stats so far today and two states are currently leading the charge with new members: Kansas and Illinois.  

Will your state bring on the most Strong Towns members this week?
