We enjoyed a good year in the Detachment but time keeps marching on. For the League, every year is an election year. The upcoming elections will be held in February at the general meeting. Your four elected offices are Commandant, Senior Vice Commandant, Junior Vice Commandant and Judge Advocate.
Current Commandant Jim Yakubsin has served seven consecutive terms and is ready to pass the torch. Senior Vice Commandant Vern Kisling has announced his intention to run for Commandant. Anyone else may also throw their hat in the ring. At this point, Junior Vice Commandant Gary Van Cleef and Judge Advocate John Murdoch have agreed to run, but they have not announced which positions they'll run for.
Once the Commandant is elected, their will be appointments to the appointed positions. This includes Adjutant/Paymaster, Sergeant at Arms, Chaplain, Quartermaster, Honor Guard Commander, Social Director, Veterans Service Officer, and others. If you have an interest in serving, contact any of the officers.
At the January meeting, nominations can be submitted on the floor. Likewise, if anyone is interested, you could simply announce your intention to run and someone can nominate you at any point before the election for that office begins. At the elections, we will ask for any other nominations right before voting.
See you all at the January meeting.
