Greetings Members:

Members: We try to keep the Web site as up to date as possible. However, before any plans are made, check with the DFS, VFSA, and/or the VFSAAA to make sure that the listed information is correct.

In Memory: At Retraining for 2018 the Board started a special ongoing project.  At each Retraining conference there will be a table outside of the main conference room with information and photos of members who passed away during the previous year. In addition, there will be a digital photo frame of all deceased members that we currently have information on. We are trying to update this frame and obtain as much information on deceased members as we can. Please visit the In-Memory page for more information.

Board of Directors: Information on the 2020-2021 Board of Directors is now available on our website.

Bylaws: Our Bylaws were updated and changed at the 2019 Retraining Conference. Those Bylaws are posted on the Bylaws page.

Because of the current COVID-19 Pandemic and the cancelling or limiting public gatherings it became apparent to the Board that additional changes needed to be made to our Bylaws. Because of the cancelling of the 2020 Retraining Seminar these suggested changes will be voted on at the 2021 Annual Meeting during the Retraining Conference. Please see the Bylaws or Retraining pages for addition information. Questions should be directed to Legal Advisor Rick Conway, President Marc Hackett, 2nd Vice President Greg Locke, or Secretary Mark Garman. General questions can be directed to any Board member.    

Meeting Minutes/Treasurer's Reports: Meetings Minutes and Treasurer's Reports are available on the Meeting Minutes and Treasurer pages. New minutes and reports will be posted when they become available. Other minutes and reports, if available, can be obtained from the current Secretary.

Information from our President, Marc Hackett, mailto:tacklb@juno.com , will be posted when it becomes available.

BE CAREFUL, BE SAFE,

and the best to you, your family, and friends,

Mark Garman/Secretary/VFSAAA
