Mid – Winter Conference 2023

Message from Our National President:

 

I hope everyone had an uneventful trip home from Daytona Beach, and for those of you who brought an unexpected guest home with you I am truly sorry.  Hopefully, by the time this Newsletter is published you are feeling better and this super spreader is soon on its way out.

It was wonderful to see all of you at the Convention and great to see many, many new faces.  For those of you who were unable to attend you were missed.  PNP Joppa did a good job of keeping us on point and we were able to conduct our business efficiently and without too many set-backs.  Three new charters were presented and there are a few more new units in the works.  Thank you to those Division Vices who made that happen.

I am looking forward to working with my new Senior Vice, Dotty Sanning, Junior Vice, Mary Brief, Judge Advocate Darlene MacCubbin and Jr Past President Evelyn Joppa as well as the other members of the Board.  The positions of National Color Bearer and Banner Bearer still remain unfilled on the roster.  If you know of someone who would like to fill either of these positions, please have them contact me at the email address listed below. 

At this time, I have some new ideas for the Newsletter that I would like to share.  Beginning in October the Senior Vice, Junior Vice and Judge Advocate will no longer each submit a monthly article, also beginning in October each Division Vice President will be assigned a specific month to submit an article on the happenings in their Division.  I would also like to see us bring back the Programs of Pride feature.  I feel it is important for others to see what you are doing in your Unit or Department, and, I will also be asking the Committee Chairs and our Jr. Past President to also submit articles for the Newsletter   My goal with these changes is to make the Newsletter newsier so to speak and give each of us an opportunity to learn what our sister units and departments are doing and maybe even get some ideas on how to do things differently.

I am looking forward to working with Commandant Baker and his staff and to assist the League in any way I can to continue the good rapport we currently have with the League.

Thank you for allowing me to represent all of you as your National President.  Ladies, I took an oath and solemnly promised upon my honor to carry out the duties of my office as your National President and will do everything in my power not to let you down.  My door is always open and should the need arise please do not hesitate to reach out to me by either phone or email (natlpresmcla22@gmail.com).

Until next time, stay safe

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all, and together we can make anything happen.

Semper Fidelis
