Happy new year all – some say it’s a time of renewal and fresh starts, but no matter how hard we try, or how much we wish for it, our past is with us… forever.
But the past needn’t dictate our future, and our post will be undergoing some changes in the coming year.
Most immediately, we – your executive board - will be updating the Post’s membership directory. This is an annual event, but this year it will be based on an in depth audit of the information we have, and the information the National directory has. This is very important because the IRS is targeting the American Legion over our tax exempt status and our records must be accurate and in concurrence with the national records. We will be calling you to verify or provide any of the missing/contradictory information we may have. If we have no phone number for you, or the number we have is incorrect, we will be sending you a letter, or maybe, stopping by for a quick interview.
We ask for your understanding and cooperation with our efforts, it will make our post better and better.
As we propose and enact changes, we will keep you informed. And, of course, your input, critiques, and attaboys are always welcome.
