Update Welcome Home Parade for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans 2012

CVO is unit number 13 in the Welcome Home Parade for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans this Saturday, December 15th. We will form up on Balbo East between Lake Shore Drive and Columbus on the north side of the street. Be there no later than 10:45. We are an early unit in the Parade, so we will kick off on time. Bring family and friends and dress warmly. It will be fun for all!! We have vehicles for those who cannot walk. The Parade route is north from Balbo on Columbus to Monroe.

Wear your CVO shirts and headgear. We’ll have shirts for sale at the Parade as well.

See you there!!

CVO Meeting, Parade and 2013 Nominations

We have decided to cancel the December CVO meeting and attend the Welcome Home Parade for Post-9/11 Veterans on Saturday, December 15th instead. We will be sending out information on the Parade—where to meet up and when to be there—by separate email. Please plan on joining us for the Parade.

December was to have been the meeting at which we held nominations to the CVO Board of Directors (the Executive Committee). Elections will be held at the January meeting according to our Bylaws. The January meeting will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 10 AM at Montford Point Marine Association, 7011 S Vincennes in Chicago.

Since we are not having a December meeting, we are going to do nominations by email. The Executive Committee, in accordance with the Bylaws, nominates the following people to be on the Board of Directors from January 2013 through January 2015:

Brian Stella

Bruce Parry

All three are currently members of the Executive Committee and have accepted their nomination.

In addition, the following person has been placed in nomination to be on the Board of Directors from January 2013 through January 2015:

Sel Dunlap

Sel is not currently on the Executive Committee and has accepted the nomination.

There are currently 8 members of the Executive Committee. We are authorized up to 9. With the nomination of these 4 people, if they are all elected, the Executive Committee will have 9 people, the maximum number authorized.

If anyone else would like to be nominated to the Executive Committee, please contact me by email, phone or US Mail as soon as possible, but not later than December 15, 2012. You must be a paid member in good standing to be nominated to the CVO Board of Directors (the Executive Committee).
