Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. It was good seeing old friends at the convention. If you did not made the convention it was a wonderful time. We missed you. There was 468 pre-registered for the convention. The finally total was 499 people. Great turn out.
A couple of notes from the national office. Dot Cutting is retiring as office manager as of July 31, 2015. They did interviews at the convention to find a candidate. Mike Royster chose Sam Trusner as our new office manager. He was the District V Director. He is no longer the District Director. The new District V Director is Scott Jess. Scott was also this year's Glen Sharp Equipment Manager of the Year. Thank you to all who voted for this great award. One other change that was made was that the close of the CEU window will be June 30, 2018, instead of May 31, 2018. This gives everyone an extra month to get your CEUS. YEA. More National news can be found on our new updated website. Please go to it and check it out.
Now on the district front. We had nineteen members at the District meeting in Indy. I want to thank everyone on reelecting me for another two years as your District Director. Thank you for putting your trust in me. I am your voice. If there is a problem with something just let me know so I can get it corrected. Chad Widmer will stay on as National and District VII New Member Chair. It is official now Greg Payne has retired as our District VII CEU Rep. THANKS GREG FOR TWENTY-THREE YEARS OF GREAT SERVICE TO OUR DISTRICT. Our new CEU Chairperson is Victor Ignatiev from TCU. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org phone number is (817)257-6954. Mailing address is: TCU Athletics ; Box 297600; Fort Worth, Tx 76129. Any new CEU reporting now goes to Victor. Justin Shaw from TCU is now our District VII Treasurer. Thanks Chad, Victor, and Justin for taking these important roles in our District. It cannot be done without you guys. I just found out recently that we had a computer problem between the National office and me getting our list of new members in the District. So I want to welcome the following new members to our district. So if you see them welcome them into our great District with open arms. Help them out if they have a problem. WELCOME TO DISTRICT VII.
