DPA Convention 2021 to be Virtual per DPA Cdr Stein who has informed us that despite our best efforts, including looking at alternate sites, the in-person DPA convention scheduled for Pattaya Beach on 27 June must be canceled. Instead, a virtual convention will be on 19 June @ 0830 Thailand time. We will be using the Zoom platform, a link is located on the District V calendar and in the Members only section to access. We expect the convention to last approximately two hours. Their will be reports by Council members and a few committee chairmen, but not the typical number of reports. Please provide a written copy of your report to ADJ Watson whether your present at the virtual convention or not!
In order to assist in your membership recruiting efforts during these extraordinary times, DPA Cdr Stein is announcing effective immediately and for the remainder of this term the Department will contribute $100 to your post for all new Life Members added to your rolls. We expect the Post to match the $100 DPA contribution; thereby making the Life Membership very affordable by reducing the cost by a total of $200. Expires 30 June 2021
