I attended the 3rd Region President’s meeting in Panama City, Panama 11-14 April. It was a great meeting and lots of discussions. Foremost is National's focus areas of Retention – ROTC – Recruiting. These will be reflected in our Chapter Annual Plan as well. Of significant surprise was our chapter was awarded the best Chapter in 3rd Region for 2019. This couldn’t have been accomplished if it weren’t for our volunteers and Community Partners who got involved in things like ROTC support to both our high school JROTC programs and our SROTC programs at our two universities, supporting the ESGR program, Veteran events and engaging with our congressional offices. Thank you to all how made it possible

We had a great General Membership Meeting on Friday, 26 April 2019 at Tequila Azul in Melbourne, FL 32940. Our Guest Speaker, Colonel Mike Ladd, Director of Military Support, Florida National Guard gave an excellent presentation on how busy the Florida Guard is and some of its challenges. There were lots of questions from the audience and a lot of interest. COL Ladd was joined by his brother SGM (R) Shane Ladd who is settling in this area.
