Washington Conference to Be Held February 22-25, 2015 in Washington D.C. at the Washington Hilton Hotel

Those attending have until January 20th to reserve their hotel rooms at the discounted price. Anyone travelling to this conference is also responsible for their own transportation itinerary. Persons attending include our Department Commander, National Executive Committeeman and Alternate, Mike Landkamer, Fred Tisdale, Leon Hagan, Doug Boldt, Ken Schmid, and Linda Bomberger. Department Adjutant Salak is working on finalizing the schedule for the conference and has been in contact with the staff of our Senators and Congressmen to coordinate meeting times on February 24. Before departing DC, the delegation will go to the Hill and listen to the testimony of National Commander Mike Helm. The NEC or Alternate will provide a short synopsis of the activities in Washington DC during District Conventions so those that didn’t attend can still get feedback.
