  Message from the National President:

Greetings Auxiliary Members!


Enjoy this day of celebration of "our National Birthday."

We are in uncharted waters as the Board of Trustees work through the process
of keeping our Auxiliary on track during this Covid Pandemic,  It is encouraging
to hear the Departments and nits are finding innovative ways to hold meetings
and to recruit new members,  Keeping in touch with our members is always vital, 
and during this current situation those phone calls and cards help. Be safe, Be well!

The Board of Trustees have met by way of conference calling.  These dedicated
ladies continue to respond quickly. The Executive Committee met on June 24,2020
and the full Board met on June 26, 2020. The Board approved the appointment of
Rocky Mountain Division Vice President Mitzi Abeyta and Assistant Division Vice 
President Debbie Krueger,  Thank you, Karen Bressler and Holly Price, for service
to your division and national.

July one was the deadline for committee reports from Departments and Units.  I 
Hop all units and departments reported their activities for this year. The Board 
formulated a plan for reports normally presented at Convention. All reports are due
August 1, 2020 sent by email to the National President with a copy to the National
Secretary,  National Officers must send in their reports.  The committees have been 
Sent instructions to complete their reports. The awards will be sent to the Committee
Chairs to the appropriate Division Vice President.  The Division Vice President will
distribute the awards after August 9th. All reports will be posted August 9th on the 
National Web Site until October 1, 2020.

Allowances voted on last convention will be distributed if proper report is received,
except the Convention Secretary.  By vote of the Board she will receive 1/2 the
Budgeted amount since there will be no convention minutes to compile.  Big thanks
to Lynn LaBerge for her many years of continued service as our Convention Secretary,


The Bylaws and Administrative Procedure Proposals for 2020 Convention will be
held until the next National Convention.  There is no need for the maker t re-submit.
Any new proposals for the 2021 bylaws review may e sent by the 2021 deadline.

Items normally handled at Convention will e addressed by the Board of Trustees as
needed,  The Budget Committee Chair and the Comptroller will be asked for 
important recommendations in their areas of expertise as well as others.  The
Board's goal will be to keep members informed.

Our highly skilled Secretary, Karen Grady, presented a letter of resignation June 24th,
She will be moving to Pennsylvania as her husband has obtained a new job. She

has accomplished much in the four years. The Standard Operating Procedures

established is unbelievably valuable to the auxiliary and a new secretary. She will 

be working in the office through August and is willing to assist with the training of
a new secretary, We wish her the best.


Semper Fidelis,


Evelyn B Joppa
