Considering running for Post Commander and Auxiliary President? How about as the Post Quartermaster, or Post or Auxiliary Treasurer? The sheer thought of taking on that leadership role can seem overwhelming. It need not be.
Your State Department hosts annual Flying Squadron events to help newly elected, or returning, officers with the training they need. Each event is on a Saturday. You will learn how to use the VFWWEBMAIL and VFW Program Reporting systems. You will learn about the state-provided web sites and how to use them. You will learn how to handle funds, how the Veterans of Foreign Wars operates at the state and post level, and how to participate in the many VFW programs. You will share ideas with other like-minded leaders. You will meet comrades from other posts and districts and take away a few new ideas.
We will also invite Men’s Auxiliary Presidents and Treasurers.
Seasoned veteran officers in all categories, past state commanders, and All State Team members will be there to share ideas and help prepare you for your new responsibilities. And, there are plenty of mentors for the Ladies and Men’s Auxiliaries. PDP Presidents and auxiliary chairman and line officers will be at each regional event.
