Message from the National Commandant




1 - We are now printing our membership cards in house, so by leaving off the expiration date. Cards are good for life, we no longer have to print for existing members, only for new members, transfers and new life members, that cuts our card printing down to around 10,000 or less every year from around 30,000.


2 - Anyone who wishes to order a replacement card or just wants the new plastic can order from our website,


3 - We are currently trying to get the company to list the expiration dates in the portal with the members name and info.  


4 - All Detachment paymasters have access to the portal to verify anyone of their members. If they have been delinquent for a long period of time their name will drop off the portal page.


5 - If you have a visiting member from out of area, the fastest way to verify (if you need to) is to contact his/her Detachment paymaster or Commandant.


6 - We are now using an old but tried and true way of mailing out membership cards, they are going directly to the Detachment paymasters, this avoids having to deal with returns due to bad addresses. Hand them out at your meetings, it will also get members at your meetings, contact them and let them know you have their card, if they want it they can go to a meeting and have it presented to them.


Thanks for your support

National Mid-Winter Conference

Division Vices, Dept. Commandants, and PNC's


For anyone that does not have one, I have attached a copy of the 

virtual agenda. There will be a zoom Commandants council and BOT's meeting.


There will also be some live Facebook viewings. I would like to get as many members on and involved as possible, one way to accomplish that would be If Division Vices not traveling and Department and/or Detachment Commandants and PNC's if possible could pull together a group and join the zoom as a group and the same for the Facebook sessions for those that do not have Facebook. Maybe you have members that live close to one another get together for a few of the virtual sessions.


Make the flow of information a little more fluid.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to call me.
