Midwinter Conference

Thank you to everyone who joined us last weekend and helped make the Midwinter Conference such a success. As always, the Sons' Hospitality Room was the place to be, with JD Owen rocking the night away, good food, good drink, and of course good company. We hope that everyone had a good time and maybe even learned something while doing so. See you all again soon, and we can't wait until June Convention!

New Department Administrative Professional

We have hired Jacqueline Stradford to take on the position of Administrative Professional and allow Paula to finally retire. Thank you Paula. Please welcome Jacqueline and help her feel like part of the AMVETS Family. She comes to us from a background in administrative duties for the VA, Church Groups, and so much more. She will be in place for the Midwinter Conference for those of you wanting to meet her. Please take it easy on her as far contacting her at the office, as she is still in training with Paula and preparing for the Conference, which I can assure you, is a lot to tackle in your first weeks on the job. Welcome to the Family, Jacqueline!
