The Membership Recognition Program (MRP) is the largest way we recognize member from all over the California-Nevada-Hawai’i district. It recognizes members who have shown dedication in our three tenets: service, leadership, and fellowship. Members are recognized at the district level during Fall Training Conference and District Convention. In order to achieve an MRP ranking, you need to be dues-paid, reach a specific number of service hours, and complete a specific number of tags.
