2017 Department of Alaska

Fall Workshop

In the Spirit of Service Not Self for Our Veterans, God and Country

The 2017 Department of Alaska Fall Workshop will be held at

Spenard Post 28 during September 30 & October 1, 2017.

Registration Form - Pre-registration deadline is September 27, 2017. Meals this year will be on your own. You will be allowed 1 ½ hours for your lunch break on Saturday, September 30.

Department of Alaska Executive Committee Meeting & ALA Alaska Girls State Meeting Call - The Department of Alaska Fall Workshop and DEC Meeting are scheduled for September 30 & October 1, 2017 at Spenard Post 28 in Anchorage, Alaska, located at 7001 Brayton Drive.

The Workshop and ALA Alaska Girls State Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Department Executive Committee will be held on Sunday, October 1 from 9:00am - Noon. We will not be providing meals at this conference, but attendees will be allowed a sufficient lunch break to find lunch for yourselves. Also, Post 28 is hosting their annual Oktoberfest celebration the evening of September 30th and if you would like to attend tickets are $20.00 at the door following adjournment of our Workshop at 5:00 p.m.

In addition, because our Junior members of the Auxiliary were unable to hold their meetings and elections at the Department Convention in Haines this past April, we are hoping to have enough Juniors attend this workshop so that they can have their meeting and elections at this Fall Workshop. It is tentatively planned that they will have their meeting and elections on Saturday, September 30 and then the new officers will be presented and ratified at our DEC Meeting on Sunday, October 1. Please try to bring as many Junior Auxiliary members as you can to this meeting. We are hoping for a very good turnout.

Please notify all of your Unit members so that they can make arrangements to attend the meetings. This will be a learning opportunity for all Auxiliary members, not just Officers and Chairmen. All members are urged to attend both days. Please try to send your Unit President, Unit Secretary, Membership Chairman and Unit Girls State Chairman to this workshop and meeting (especially if they are new to their offices/chairmanships this year).

This will be our eleventh workshop and we would like to have a very good attendance. We know you will learn a lot from the Department Chairmen who will be conducting the conference. The education of members is vital not only for officers and chairmen, but for all Auxiliary members. Members with a greater understanding of the Auxiliary programs are more likely to volunteer, participate in meetings and be leaders in the Auxiliary. We strive to educate our entire membership on every level to ensure the leadership of this organization continues to be the very best now and in the future.

I hope that this helps you with your planning at your next meeting and I also hope to see all of you at this year’s Fall Workshop and DEC Meetings. If you have any questions please email me at aladepak@gci.net or give me a call. I will provide more information upon my return from National Convention, but this should be enough for you to present at your September meetings.

If you have any questions, please contact Department Headquarters at aladepak@gci.net.
