As you all are aware, I have been selected to serve as District Director over your region for the next three years. It is with great honor that I will be working with each of you as regional group presidents and your members to assist in making sure blinded veterans and their families are aware of Blinded Veterans Association and its resources. As our organization continues to make adjustments for the better for its members, it is very important that as leaders we make sound decisions that are best for the members and organization. This upcoming year I will be traveling to each regional group for one of your meetings/conventions to visit the members and answer any questions/concerns. I recommend ensuring that your membership rosters and financial reports are accurate as well as submitted in a timely manner in order for your regional group to remain in good standing. I welcome new and creative ideas and please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. Once again thank you for allowing me to serve as District 3 Director of the Blinded Veterans Association.
