The 2017 Mid-Winter Conference in Columbus, Ohio from Feb. 9-12 was a great success. We hosted the Legislative Awards Breakfast, Commander's and President's Testimonial Dinner, three guest speakers about different veteran driven organizations, many committee meetings, two Business Sessions, our famous hospitality rooms, and much more.

A committee was created and funded to start a membership drive to actively recruit new members.
One member spoke out about her project, Save the 22, and read more at her program here.
We have several members interested in running on both National and State level in the upcoming elections.
One member spoke about a training workshop called the Warrior Transition Workshop sponsored by AMVETS.
Donations were given to the Commander for his project with the America's Freedom Lodge.
Important decisions are being made at state Legislative level that could affect the AMVETS organization funding. Pay attention and call your local Legislator.
