National President 2018-2019
News You Can Use & Upcoming Event Details
Good afternoon from warm and breezy Maryland. Had a touch of rain this morning; 15th Friday out of 18 we’ve had rain.
If you visit the website this weekend and it is down it’s because there are updates galore! The Convention Digest (NEC/CONVENTION TAB), Spring 2019 National Lines (PUBLICATIONS tab) as well as the National Constitution and Bylaws (PUBLICATIONS tab) will be posted. We have taken out the bolded entries in the documents (CBl) and have cleaned them up. NONE OF THE VERBIAGE HAS BEEN CHANGED.
All the Convention information available to me has been posted to the website and can be found under the NEC/CONVENTION tab.
Local Auxiliary and Department Revalidation time is upon us! You can find the Officers Form on the website under the FORMS tab. Local Auxiliaries – please send your revalidation information to your Department who will in turn send it to us. Please be sure to fill out all the mandatory information, front and back, and send your IRS Form 990, too. Be advised that all indebtedness to the National organization(s) must be paid in full to have eligible delegates seated at National Convention.
Please share this information with your members and if you haven’t already, like our Facebook page. We’re a little over 500 likes away from 2,000. Plus it’s a great place for information.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!
** Important Forms Notice **
Following a software update from Adobe, there has been a change in how you use the forms. Going forward, you must save the form to your computer before you fill it out. If you complete a form before saving it to your computer, it will save a blank copy and your completed form will be lost. To save the form to your computer, you need to open the form and click download. A box will pop up and ask where you would like to save the file. You will need to select a location to save the file such as “documents”, “desktop”, etc. Once the document is saved to your computer, you will need to then open that file (the one you saved) to fill in the information. You can then save this file and the information you input will remain on the document. If you wish to keep your blank document but save the completed document as well, you will need to select “Save As” which will allow you to give the file a new name and select a file location to save it to. Doing this will keep your blank file intact and will also give you the completed copy as well.
