Comrades as the New Year begins, it’s also time to resolve once again our commitment to assisting veterans. In the past we have accomplished much. I look forward to serving you and having an exceptional year.
Mid-Winter is rapidly approaching and once again looks like we’ll be well represented at this significant event. If attending, make sure you notify the headquarters along with who is your congressional representative.
In March we begin our District meetings. We need from each District the date of your meeting, location, and meal arrangements. Once again, each District needs to meet on different dates so that we can have our same staff members present for each meeting.
To assist you we will be sending out an Order of Business that you can adopt and tailor to meet your needs. Also, to be included, Parliamentary Procedures for your use. Plan on your meeting to be three – four hours. I feel it’s essential that we share the latest information from Mid-Winter, allow time for discussion, and take care of Department business. A reminder, this year is an even number year. Districts Two and Four will need to hold elections for those positions listed in the Department Constitution and Bylaws.
We encourage maximum attendance from Chapter’s and their members so we can have an informed membership and their input is heard by the Department staff.
Planning is under way for our convention June 11 – 14 in Green Bay. In addition to our normal business we will be celebrating the 100
year of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). We’re planning on having a great event and would like maximum attendance to take care of business and help us celebrate.
We’re in process of updating the District Executive Committee Person Handbook. Plans are to provide this Handbook to the DEC’s at the District Meetings.
Have a great month and if you see how we can improve service to you let us know at the Headquarters.
need to continuously look for ways to improve in 2020 and beyond.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
