Central Area Commander

September 2021

Busy, Busy, Busy

By the time this article comes out, many of us will be at the National Convention in Phoenix. I am looking forward to meeting fellow members from around the country and participating in the many events.

The Central Area is moving along and finishing up the new Officer Installations. The 16th District has finished theirs, and the 7th and 15th are almost done. We have been trying to focus on membership. However, until we get our weekly membership reports, we are a little behind the eight ball. There was a Central Area Membership training class held on July 31st, with representatives from the 15th and 16th Districts in attendance. Thank you to Ray Perez for the training! Many issues were worked out, with only two needing to go higher.

On September 18th, there will be a training class conducted by Department at Post 72 in Mulberry. This training is for all District Commanders, Vice Commanders, and Post Officers in the Central Area. I am looking for a great turnout! There is always something new to learn! The training is from 9-2, and lunch will be provided.

I have started my official visitations and will send out an email to the Post a month prior to the visit to confirm the date is okay with you. I like to meet with the Post Officers about a half hour prior to the meeting.

Within the next two months, I will have attended a District meeting in all three Districts. I am also looking forward to attending the 15th District picnic at the end of the month. It has been a while since it has been held.

Until next month, keep working those memberships and programs, and stay safe.
