2018 Unit-Specific Infographic

In early 2018, the EMG State Office released a set of infographics customized with the 2017 data for each unit. The data used to generate these graphics was reported by each unit (if you do not see your unit’s infographic in this folder, it is possible your unit did not report data for 2017).

These infographics can be used to promote the work of your local unit in your community.

To find your local unit infographic, please find and download it in this Google Drive folder.
