Detachment Commander Richard Strothman

 

 dc12.jpg Hello Team Kansas

I want to thank all of you that have kept Team Kansas ahead of the Membership Target Dates each month. We are starting the home stretch,
so keep those memberships coming in. This can be the toughest part of the annual membership drive. Please work hard on those renewals …
let's get that percentage up.

The time of the year is close at hand for our District Conventions to start again. My hope is that as many of  you  can make it to your respective District Conventions as possible. I plan on making it to as many of the Conventions as I can, and hope to see new people
stepping up and running for positions. Also Detachment Convention will be in May. I’m looking forward to seeing several new
people there. It would be wonderful to fill the room with a lot of new faces.
Finally, all those who have a loved one to share with, have a very wonderful Valentine’s Day.

Until next month,

Richard Strothman

Commander, Detachment of Kansas

Team Kansas:

Congratulations to the Squadrons that have achieved 100%..!!!

 

District Commanders:  You are the ones Detachment is looking to for contact with the Squadrons… Are you on the phone with your Squadrons, or better yet in their meetings asking for a transmittal..?

No one has asked for help so Detachment must assume you don’t need any.  If that is not the case please let me know and I will contact your AL District Commander and request their assistance on your behalf.

Commander Strothman and V-Commander Wallsmith:  What is the Membership Team doing to eliminate the “goose-eggs”..?

Gentlemen, it’s time to start taking membership serious.


Which of you is going to step up and make a difference..?

Regards,

Don Culver

Adjutant, Detachment of Kansas
