527Fw: Updated Annual Report
- Sep 30, 2009Ahoy Members and Friends,The message below just came in. I invite you to check out the report format, http://www.navyleague.org/councils/annual_report.php, this council will use to file our 2009 NLUS annual report. It shows many but not all the daunting tasks a council should accomplish. We are in good shape on some like supporting a ship and a Sea Cadet unit.Others like providing scholarships - well, currently we are not in a financial position to do so with less than $750 in the treasury, and most of that obligated. Our fundraising activities to date are our luncheon meetings and our drawings at the luncheons. Occasionally we receive a very appreciated donation in support of what we do.We have upcoming vacancies within our council officer and director ranks. We would be a stronger council if they were filled. Art Rogers has indicated his intention to step down as Treasurer - for sure that position needs to be filled. Other positions indicated on the report that need chairs are: Membership, Retention, Recruiting, Newsletter, Public Affairs, and Legislative Affairs. These can either be filled by Vice Presidents or Directors. Nominations are open and will remain so right up to the election and installation of officers and directors during our December 21 luncheon meeting - our "Annual Meeting."Please contact me before I contact you asking you to serve. Unless someone wants the President's position it looks like I will remain in office. The normal term for officers is two years, 2010 will be my third year. I would like to step down to vice president at the end of 2010. There will be some shifting about but for sure a full slate of officers and as many directors as possible is desirable.Please take a look at the report form and see what is expected of a NLUS council. Please step forward to serve as an officer or director. A new NLUS Operations Manual is about to be released.We remain on the lookout for new members: corporate, community affiliate, and individual. Recruiting is a task each of us can do. NLUS HQ is offering recruiters a "chance to win" $500 during the fourth quarter of 2009 - one chance for each new member brought aboard. On line or with hard copy forms indicate 4Q2009 on the completed application.Heave Ho!PhelpsPhelps Hobart, PresidentPacific Merchant Marine Council, NLUSPMMC at cwo dot com, (916) 955-3972 cell_________________________________----- Original Message -----From: Chairez, SalvadorSent: Wednesday, September 30, 2009 6:06 AMSubject: Updated Annual Report
