“Our Leadership and Knowledge should produce Gold for our Veterans”

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.—Jim Rohn

A leadership class is to help, educate, learn and grow with knowledge. As our organization moves forward, we want have top leaders and this comes from education. Our Department President Marsha, has requested a Leadership Class, for our Juniors, to be held prior to the opening of Junior Conference and for Seniors, prior to our convention next July. A request has been received from members for a Certified Leadership Class, as some would like to be certified to enable them to teach a Leadership Class. I will check into the procedure to be followed. More information will be available after National.

If your Unit, District or Division would be interested in conducting a class, please give me a call or send an e-mail and we will work out the details.

There are no department awards, however I will give an award for the Unit that graduated the most seniors from a Leadership Class and an award for the Unit that graduated the most Juniors from a Leadership Class.
