  Message from the National President:

Happy New Year!


May our new year be filled with opportunity and new innovative ideas to continue

to build on our objectives of serving our Marines, Veterans, their families, and our

communities.


We are faced with the continued challenges due to the COVID-19 Virus. We need

to be willing to change our plans to meet the ever-changing situations required due

to this virus. Adapt and overcome!


We all need to think outside the box and share what is working in your home area. 

Sharing information and asking questions help all of us. Laughter and smiles go a

long way to keep members working for our goals and objectives. Happy members 

are more likely attend and participate.


Our National Newsletter will have a new section in the coming months for questions.

Questions will be referred to the appropriate officer or officers. Each month only five 

questions will be addressed. Members can send their questions to 

MCLA-Newsletters@nationalmcla.org


Mid-Winter is just around the corner. Have you registered, signed up for the banquet, 

and booked your hotel reservation? Departments and Units, please submit an ad for

the Mid-Winter Program book.  All deadlines are February 5, 2021.


The Pre-Conference Board meeting will be held at 1;00 P.M. Thursday February 25 in the

Greenway room, 4th floor. The agenda for Friday and Saturday is attached to the 

newsletter, subject to change. Meeting Room will be the Clairmont Room, and the 

Ship's Store will be in the Montpelier Room, both on the 4th floor.


We will need to complete our business by noon Saturday as the League has a special

Joint Session scheduled on Saturday afternoon from 1:00 - 3:00 P.M. Marine Mike

McNamara is a radio host for ALL MARINE RADIO. He will be speaking on POST 

Traumatic Winning. Please have your reports ready as scheduled in the agenda, so that

we may join the League for this event.


If you have items that need to be added to the agenda, please email your requests to

me so that they may be included in the final agenda.


Friday evening will be an opportunity for fun and fellowship, It is a surprise! Look for 

details in the Ship's Store.

 

Please keep our members and their families in prayer.


Look forward to seeing you at Mid-Winter.

"Safe Travels!"
