Ohio State Convention Cancelled

Due to State and Federal rules set in place to battle the covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Ohio AMVETS have decided to cancel the 2020 State Convention. All Department Officers will remain in their respective roles until June 2021, provided we can safely hold the convention at that time.Squadron and District Officers are encouraged to do the same. A new Change of Officer form will still need to be filed in a timely manner, accompanied by a receipt for each squadron's filing of the 990 form. Also, membership rules are still in place, all membership must be into Department HQ, as well as returned/unused preprint cards, by June 1. If any issues arise to prevent this date from being met, please contact Comdr Davenport or 1st Vice Steve Bryant  ASAP.  Attached is a letter from Commander Davenport with excerpts from messages from AMVETS Ohio Commander McElrath and National Sons JA David Spenser concerning the current situation. All Squadrons will receive a mailing in the next week, or so, from Department HQ concerning our next steps forward. Please look for the mailing and pay close attention to its contents, we will need everyone's assistance to finish this year and start the new year in strong fashion. Thank You, and be safe!
