There were two important handouts given out during the Fall Conference. The first was the Report Book, which can be found here. Inside, you will find reports for all committees and officers. It's a great way to keep up to date on the pulse of AMVETS and what's happening within the organization.
The second important handout is the current issue of The Ohio AMVET, a special Ohio AMVETS newsletter designed for general members and officers to get current information about AMVETS and what other members are up to, along with other Veteran issues. Read the Fall 2016 issue here.
