"Focus on Service"
From 2017-2018 Department of Alaska President Barbe Wolkoff
After the wet, cold and miserable summer we have had in Alaska, I was very happy to attend our National Convention in sunny Reno, Nevada. We attended many pre-convention meetings and Constitution and Bylaws. Now that we have learned and discovered new ideas and are totally recharged, let's get out there and hit those membership goals. Pick a program or two that are close to your heart and make them happen for your Unit/Department.
For those who don't know; this is the last convention with Linda Schmitt as our Department Secretary, and the first for Barb Nath as our new Department Secretary. Linda has done an amazing job for this department, so be sure to give her a call or drop a note to let her know how much your appreciate her and her dedication to this organization.
I am looking forward to the Fall Workshop September 30th and DEC on October 1st. Please attend and bring your Juniors as they will be having their department meetings and election. During my visitations I hope you meet and share ideas with your units.
Congratulations to all the new National Officers, may you have a productive and amazing year. God bless you and God bless America - today is the day to help a veteran.
