District 14 Commander Monthly Comments

July 1, 2021



I would like to congratulate all newly elected Post/District Officers, and hope you are settling into your elected positions.

We all owe Past District Commander Carlo Davis a tremendous amount of gratitude for the work he and his staff did. They faced a lot of challenges, but none greater than Covid -19.

Post Commanders and Comrades, there is no change in our focus, our number one priority is to help veterans. Our second priority is Retention and Recruitment. Our membership goals remain the same, achieve 100%+ for each Post within our District, add or convert 33 annual members to Life (3 per Post) and 11 Life members to any level Legacy Life (1 per Post) and keep our retention above 90%.

Posts, call your members and check on their status. This is one way of showing we really care about our comrades.

Have the Post Quartermaster print a roster of all members and with the assistance of the Post membership chairman, Post Senior/Junior Vice Commanders, and various members of the district staff, select at least 5 members that they will contact for the week. Post Commanders are expected to notify your respective staffs and have these rosters printed and execution to begin at your earliest opportunity.

  - Commanders Call and District Staff, Zoom call Thursday, 1 July at 1830. Have your monthly plans ready for the month, this will be required for every Commanders call. 

  - OTS is scheduled for 14-18 July at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. 
  - Deadline to receive 4th Quarter Post Audit at Texas VFW HQ is 31 July 2021.
