Northeast Area Annual meeting postponed

The Northeast Area annual meeting planned for August 31st has been postponed. There will be further updates after the audit is completed.




Dear Presidents and National Directors,

It has been an honor serving you since I was installed in Indianapolis as the National Vice President, Northeast Area.  Ed and I have especially enjoyed our chapter visits and area gatherings.

Annual Meeting Postponement
In June we sent an annual meeting notice for our meeting on August 31, 2018. Due to unforeseen circumstances, this meeting is postponed until further notice. The reason is that a seven-year audit of the Northeast Area is being performed by a certified accountant. For further details, refer to the July 31, 2018 National Executive Board meeting minutes published in the Governance section on the FMCA website.

Updates from Gillette
