Please take note of our Treasurer’s address so you do not send funds to the wrong place

The Officers and Board of Directors have decided to cancel this year's reunion due to the pandemic. We do plan on having next year's reunion at the same place and right at the same dates; September 15th thru 17th, 2021. Of course we will have more details to follow. Believe me this was not done lightly but with the best interest of our membership at the core. We will be mailing out our newsletter soon with more information.
If you have made your reservations at the motel, please call them and cancel it yourself. It may not be a bad idea to get a verification number of your cancellation, just to be on the safe side.
Remember those of us that wait to pay our membership at the reunion that this year you will have to mail to our treasurer.
We are continuing to use the new address format on the newsletter envelopes. On the line with your name there will be, for example; Rex Hurd (314) this is your membership number. This is helpful for us when we are finding you on the roster when you are submitting a renewal of membership. The line under your name and membership number is the last year your membership was paid for example; 2018. To be in good standing your membership has to be paid before the September’s business meeting and it technically expires on December 31st of each year. Maybe for a better understanding, your membership becomes due again on that date and it needs to be paid by the September’s meeting. Nice long grace period. You will find if your member date is more than 2 years to arrears, we will be flagging 2018 and earlier, you are in danger of going on the inactive roster. This will be noted by a yellow highlighter over the date.
We have a proposal that all Korean War Veterans, (serving from 1950 to 1953) not be charged membership dues. This association was started by them and in a small way it is a token of our appreciation. For those of you that may qualify for this please understand this does not include amenities at the reunion and banquet fees, you still are responsible for these.
As stated in the President’s Corner each of you take a look at the; CONSTITUTION OF THE 44TH ENGINEER BATTALION section. There are some proposed changes to the constitution that have been indicated with an * (asterisk) and underlined. We can make more proposed changes, just let us know.
