Fall Conference 2014
The Fall Conference will be coming up this weekend Friday 26th, Saturday 27th, and Sunday 28th. The content for the Fall Conference besides the standard meetings will be the training sessions. This is very important to all post officers who do not have a handle on how to perform their jobs. After working with membership the last year and a half I can tell you that almost all of the posts have got it wrong and still are getting it wrong even after putting out the information at the Fall Conference last year which was not well-attended. Programs is another area which is not being handled properly by most posts.
Try to make it this weekend if at all possible! At least come Saturday for the training sessions. The agenda can be downloaded here and is a draft copy and subject to change. The final copy will be available at the Clarion Hotel at the check-in counter.
Our Hospitality Chairman is requesting that all posts, especially those with canteens, bring a donation of 2 or 3 cases of beer and/or a couple bottles of liquor to help the Department defray the costs of maintaining the hospitality room. We certainly appreciate and thank you for your support.
