News You Can Use & Upcoming Event Details

Good afternoon from sunny Lanham!! Next time you get a Headquarters update, we’ll be in our new home in Hyattsville!

Please share this information throughout your Department and Locals Auxiliaries.

As of May 1, 2024, Auxiliary National Headquarters should be moved into our new office space.  We are moving about 15 minutes down the road from our current location.  Our new mailing address will be 3309-11 Hubbard Road, Hyattsville MD 20785.  Mail WILL be forwarded but realizing that there are many things that will be sent to Headquarters in preparation for National Convention as well as membership and other day to day correspondence, PLEASE use the new address.  Our phone and fax numbers will remain the same.

The server we use for data entry and other office tasks will be brought down and moved to the new location on or about April 30.  Service is bound to be intermittent until the server is relocated and back up and running, however we will have access to email.  Rest assured Sonja and I will be working from the office until they throw us out.  We’ll try to make the interruptions as few as possible and will use our Facebook page as a way of communicating our progress.

The website is being updated with revised forms as well as new information on PAWS and John Tracy Center as well as having maintenance performed.  An update on Freedoms Foundation/Founding Forward is forthcoming.

The Convention Digest is making its way to your mailbox. Please share the information and apply, apply, apply for awards!  You’ve worked hard this year and deserve kudos!

If you have any questions, please reach out with a message to our Facebook page or to  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
