As Legislative Chairman this year I have received a lot of good reports from the Auxiliaries. Please continue to send them in as the final reports will be due soon. This program will continue to help our Veterans and families of the Service members. Please continue to use Resources Available to you in MALTA. Encourage your members to contact your legislators and congressman on bills concerning our Veterans. Be sure to continue to check the VFW website for the current Priority Goals. Working together with our elected officials can help them understand the position of our Veterans. Continue to attend town hall meetings.
Hello All! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. We had an election in the month of November, and I hope everyone got out and voted. Continue to talk with your legislators about bills and issues concerning our Veterans. VFW Action Corps Weekly is free and it’s full of news about what’s happening on Capitol Hill with the Veterans and service member issues and with National Security. Subscribe at the National Website at vfwauxiliary.org by selecting “What We Do” then click on “Legislative”. Goals are released in January of each year by the VFW website or MALTA Member resources for the current Priority Goals. One of the main objectives of the Legislative Program is to improve the lives of our Veterans, service members and families through advocacy. Thanks for all your effort. Keep up the good work!!!!
Hello All! We are off to a great start with our Legislative Program. Auxiliaries are reporting the great work being done in your community with your congressman and lawmakers. Continue to contact via phone, text, emails and town hall meetings.
Continue to use the VFW website or MALTA for Priority Goals and ideas needed to help make sure you are on the same page as the VFW.
Auxiliary Presidents, have your legislative chairman give a report at each meeting regarding current Priority Legislation, how it affects our Veterans, Service Members and their Family members along with the status of the bills.
As Legislative chairman I would like each Auxiliary member to be aware that this program is to help improve the lives of our Veterans, Service Members, and their families. Your efforts along with that of the VFW members can influence lawmakers. Make sure you continue to contact your legislators. Get out and talk with your congressmen, make phone calls, and send letters. Encourage your members to get out and vote. Assist your Veterans with transportation to the polls to vote, also those elderly in need of rides.
Be sure to check the VFW website or MALTA under resources for current Priority Goals.
