News You Can Use & Upcoming Event Details
Good afternoon! Sunny here, almost balmy but between Old Man Winter and Mother Nature, a mixed bag is on its way….
Regarding National Commander Riley’s Capitol Hill Testimony, see the update below from the AMVETS website.
Note: Although the date & time is not yet set for the National Commander’s testimony, it now, unfortunately, appears that hearing will take place in the final week of March. Congress sets that schedule. That information will be posted here as soon as Congress tells National HQ.
You will find the updated National Officers listing as well as the 2019 NEC Registration Form on our website.
** 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.
A note from National Americanism Officer Denise Rodzen – Under the THIS AND THAT tab you will find information about AMVETS Legislative goals. More information can be found by clicking here. Please familiarize yourself with AMVETS priorities for “Storm the Hill” on Wednesday during the Spring NEC. An orientation meeting is being held Tuesday, March 12 at 7:00pm, room TBA. Phone number and location of your United States Representatives are being mailed to Department Americanism Officers and NEC women. Please coordinate your visits with AMVETS and Sons of AMVETS in your Department.
If you plan on attending “Storm the Hill” and/or the Memorial Service at National Headquarters, please let me know so we can be sure you have a seat on the bus for either event.
