*** Reunion Dates are Set for 2019 ***
The dates are set. Our 2019 Battalion reunion will be held in St Louis from Thursday 6/6 through Sunday 6/9. Mark your Calendars. If your granddaughter wants to get married…tell her to pick a different date.
Continue to maintain a first class webpage. The webpage is the Associations "face and voice" to members. The webpage must be updated routinely with new information such as names and pictures. This is the first priority.
Continue to build the Association's membership. Only through identifying additional members of the battalion and bringing them into the Association can we fulfill the Association mission. Expanding membership is the second priority.
Strengthen the role of the Company Representatives. The Association Officers cannot reach out to all members as the membership grows. Company Representatives are the "company commanders" to grow members and to discuss the desires and needs of the membership.
Plan and hold reunions as desired by membership. During each reunion unofficial polls should be taken to decide how frequently reunions should be held. Identify locations, plan programs and provide a meaningful experience along the line of the mission's statement of the Association.
- Hold periodic elections as required. Hold elections at reunions or as required on line.
