Delegates Packet





Message from the Speaker and Vice Speaker of the House to all Board Members, Committee Chairs, Chapter Presidents and Chapter Vice Presidents:

Time flies and we will be in North Charleston soon for the 2021 conference.

The House of Delegates will meet in a socially distanced meeting live in North Charleston on Friday March 12. I will use the completed Delegates Packet from the 2020 HOD but need from each chapter an update which I will attach to last year’s HOD Packet.

Therefore, Chapter Presidents:  please confirm with your delegates and alternates that they still are willing to serve and of course are in good standing. I sent an email to all delegates and alternate delegates to remind them to renew their membership before the expiration date of 12/31/2020.  Make a report for your chapter outlining in proper format your chapter activities and submit them to clwatkins1954@live.com no later than January 29th, 2021.

All Committee Chairpersons, please submit your 2020 report to the same email by no later than the same date, no matter what activities or lack thereof.

The required format is:

Arial size 12 – found on Home in WORD

numbered – found on Layout in WORD

continuous lines – found in Layout dropdown at Line By Numbers.

Do not hesitate to call me if you have ANY questions at all. If I can not answer, leave me a message, I will call you back the same day.  864-380-4896    Clwatkins1954@live.com
