DAV National Convention is now behind us, and a lot was happening in Tampa, Florida. Andy Marshall is our new National Commander, and you will be reading a lot about Andy. Commander Marshall has a long service record in the DAV. We cannot wait to see the many great things coming from him and National this year.
The Department of Wisconsin is now planning for Fall Conference in October. We will be looking at different topics to focus on at Fall Conference. Adjutant Larry Hill and I are still working out the details of what is going to be covered. We are studying what was requested following our State Convention, C&A training and information imparted at the National Convention. There is so much out there that it is hard to cover it all in a couple of days.
Now that things are opening, Department Officers and District Executive Committeepersons will be conducting visits to chapters. These visits are just us saying hello and letting you know what is going on in the DAV. We had an excellent turnout for the State Convention, but chapters are still hurting, and we are a source for help. It is my goal to help each chapter grow and thrive as we move forward.
If you have questions, feel free to contact us. We are here to help and be a resource for the chapters. This is one big reason Adjutant Hill and I are focusing on training at Fall Conference. We have many new officers and adjutants in the chapter positions, and we need to make sure you succeed.
We are looking forward to these visits and being a resource for YOU!
