1st Vice Commander
Comrades, I would like to thank everyone who attended the Department Convention, however now, we need to start preparing and work towards a great year. As you may know, as 1st Vice Commander, I will be providing assistance and oversight to the Eastern and Southern Area, which includes the 6th, 9th, 11th, 12th and 14th Districts. As always, your First point of contact will be your local Posts Commander, then District. Please allow them to help you resolve them. We have a chain of command and open communication within this command chain, let us use it to assist you.
As you know training/education is a vital part of what we do. Training is given at Fall and Summer Conventions, so that we have the best educated leaders in the Nation. If you feel that your Post needs additional training, please inform your District Commander. They will receive all the assistance they need to complete any training necessary.
Commanders, now is the time for your Posts to also look forward for the Legion College, this will be after the 1st of the year, but now is the time to start looking at the possible candidates for this school. Florida needs good leadership and leadership starts at the Posts level and moves up.
Zone 1 will have a Traveling Trophy this year for the leading District in Membership percentage. So whoever is ahead in Membership percentage at the end of the first quarter, will receive the Traveling Trophy at Fall Conference. After the 1st of the year, this will be passed to the winner of the 2nd quarter, same with the April 1st cut off. At the Summer Convention, the winner, and the keeper of the Traveling Trophy will be announce.
I will be seeing everyone at the various District Meetings. And Thank You for Your Continuous Service to our Country, and to the American Legion
