District 6 Report

3rd Quarter Report 2018

Hello Everyone 

Its time for a Quarterly report for District 6 and as usual the state association remains busy. The members of the state board have been visiting branches and trying to give updates on the LCPF and trying to get more members involved by explaining the benefits of becoming active in the LCPF. Also, during these visits, we try to bring the members up to date on other NALC programs such as the veterans group signup, the NALC app, and the web page. The state association also had a board meeting in August in which John Beaumont, from National HQ and the newly elected NBA Javier Bernal were in attendance. First, before I go any further, I and the rest of the Texas State Association wish to extend our congratulations to Javier for being elected the NBA for region 10.  This is great for region 10 and the NALC, as well as being much deserved by Javier!  Now back to the board meeting.  John Beaumont updated the board on the LCPF and the progress the state association and branches are making on signing up members for the LCPF.  The good news is we are making progress and adding members and our numbers are starting to show this.  So, thanks everyone and let’s keep it going. The board also discussed with John a legislative trip for Washington D.C. for the spring.  Stay tuned for dates.  Javier discussed the up coming fall school in Houston, the spring school in San Marcos, and the ongoing LCPF efforts.  The board began discussion on the state convention and ways to improve it and to help the Denton branch put on the best state convention ever.  I want to talk to everyone about the up coming election in November.  I am issuing a challenge to everyone to not only vote, but to get involved by also helping someone else to vote.  Talk to everyone you can and stress the importance of voting this election, as this could be the most important election in our lifetime.  If any branch would like someone from the state association to attend one of their branch meetings, contact the state president, Carlos Rodriguez.  The state association will be more than happy to attend your meeting to discuss the LCPF’s and to assist in any way we can. 

 

Yours in Solidarity,
