Northwest Division Conference

September 13-15, 2019


Marines

The NWDIV conference is fast approaching. The Hotel has contacted me with a change in contract so we do have a minimum room sales of at least 5. We have 10 rooms in the block set aside for us. Please visit the NWDIV website for Hotel information and get your reservations made ASAP. mcl-nwdiv.org

We need to raise money again to help offset this event. We don't charge for it nor do we require any registration. There are no meals provided or any dinner banquet for those of you who have never been here. We will have a 50/50 raffle and I ask again for all of you to bring one worthy auction item and we will take bids on those items till 1400. There have been some great items in the past so find something and bring it.

The uniform is MCL cover and a nice polo shirt. This is a casual event and one that is not structured like a regular meeting but one of information from the convention, discussions about many topics. I will set a agenda after convention. I will run this conference if I win the NJA position or not. Modern Day Marine travel day is Sunday right after our meeting so Dan Ritter will stay home to fly out to the East coast. Here next year for sure.

I look forward to seeing most of you in Billings and please push this out as an open invitation. We have a room for 35 members.

TJ Morgan for National Judge Advocate

Our Northwest Division NVC TJ Morgan announced his candidacy for National Judge Advocate a couple of weeks ago. We can show our support for him by registering as many detachment members for the National Convention being held this August in Billings, Montana so we can increase our votes and compete with Central and Eastern Divisions when it comes time to start counting the votes. Follow TJ Morgans campaign by visiting his facebook campaign page "TJ Morgan for National Judge Advocate, for the good of the league." Watch and listen to the videos his has posted. Comment and share with your Marine Corps League friends. Let's get the word out and show our support!

2019 Awards Packet

To Marine Corps League Members of the Northwest Division

Commandant T.J. Morgan has requested that the 2019 Division Award Packet be posted on the Division website. All forms are available for downloading in this post. They must be filled out and mailed with a postmark no later than April 15, 2019 to have awards presented at your state conventions. By doing this your Detachments and Departments have access to the forms more readily to recognize those Marines, Associates and Citizens within your unit and community for the hard work they perform on behalf of their community, the Detachment, The Department, the Marine Corps League and the program we support.

Honor Guard Facebook Page

Marines,
I have started a closed group Facebook page for members interested in our Honor Guard. This is a way to share pictures, thoughts and ideas and a way to be involved.  Just go to the FB search bar and enter Marine Corps League Honor Guard and ask to join. I or another admin will approve you.
