News from the DAV State Commander

April has been a great month; some of us were able to go to the National Commanders testimonial. It was a fantastic experience, and if you ever have the opportunity to go to one, I recommend it.

This month has been a busy month, with district meetings happening almost every weekend. Each district meeting has been a learning experience for everyone.

The Department is getting ready for the state convention on June 9-11, 2022, at the Green Bay Radisson Hotel & Conference Center. There are a couple of officers running for higher office and some new candidates seeking state office. However, there are still some positions we need candidates to run for, so if you are willing to learn and lead, then put your name in the running.

If you decide to run for a position, then make sure to get your bio into the State Headquarters by May 15th. Also do not forget to register for the Convention, as with everything else in the world our registration price is now $40 and dinner price is $40. Do not be late because there is a late registration fee.

In May everyone will be busy with Chapter elections or installations. Remember, your Officer Election Reports need to be submitted no later than 10 days after installation.

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend for those who celebrate it and for everyone else a great holiday weekend.

Do not forget that our National Commander Andy Marshall is coming to our convention.

See you in June at the State Convention!
