Past President's Parley

Chairman Luella Buske

Past Gold Medal Winners Passing the Ring to our Future Leaders. Feel free contact us at any time!

The purpose of the Past Presidents Parley committee is to share the experience and knowledge of past Auxiliary leaders with our future Auxiliary leaders. The Past President Parley also recognizes and honors outstanding unit members through Unit Member of the Year, and, female veterans through the Salute to Servicewomen awards.

Past Presidents are encouraged to promote mentoring opportunities of unit members. They are also encouraged to continue their support of the organization.

Units are encouraged to remember female veterans for Valentine’s day and to pay past presidents parley dues. Our units and districts have always shown great support for our nurses scholarship and I thank you for that.

The department will again be hosting a Past Presidents Parley/Gold Star banquet at department convention on Thursday, July 12, 2018. Watch the ALA Today for more info.

Don’t forget to look for the nurses scholarship applications in the education mailing.

Awards for the past presidents parley are:

Marion’s Balloonitics Plaque to the unit with
the best overall participation in the past president parley program.

Pam’s TV Landers plaque to the district with the highest contribution to the nurses scholarship fund by April 16th.

Wanda’s lovely world plaque to the unit member of the year.

A plaque to one servicewoman from each branch of service currently serving in the U.S. armed forces.
