It’s crunch time!  With less than two weeks before heading east for the Mid-Winter Conference, I still have a long list of things to accomplish.  I would like to thank the members and units who stepped up to help provide food or monetary donations for food for the Hospitality Room.  It is quite an endeavor to feed more than two hundred attendees! 

 Earlier this month, my unit assisted our local detachment with Bingo at the Illinois Veterans’ Home in Quincy, about an hour and a half drive from home.  We had approximately sixty-five Bingo players in attendance.

While we are all probably trying to keep warm under cozy blankets, remember it is almost tax time.  Some of the information you may put on your taxes and in your personal journaling can also be listed on our volunteer hour worksheets. It can be very satisfying to look back on the year and see all that you have accomplished. March is not too late for New Year’s Resolutions such as how can I continue to help my Unit, my Department, my Division and the National organization?

Just in case you need some light winter reading of your Bylaws I do have a couple of questions:

What do you have in your Bylaws about a quorum for your meetings?

How many meetings are you holding each year?

As I write this I have recently approved my first set of Bylaws for a Department and thoroughly enjoyed the process. I appreciated reading about their Department and offered a few suggestions to streamline their Bylaws. I am also getting ready to attend the National Mid-Winter Staff Conference and am looking forward to renewing old friendships and anticipate forming new ones.
