PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - December 2019

           After having served as the President of the El Paso Chapter for 8 of the past 10 years, this will be my final Border Bulletin message.  In my previous President’s message, I highlighted the significant transition that the El Paso MOAA Chapter will undergo in December 2019.  Several outstanding leaders will transition out of key billets, providing several opportunities for new leaders to step forward and take the reins of this outstanding chapter.  

The El Paso MOAA Chapter has been recognized annually at the national level, earning Five Star recognition every year for the past 15 years.  The Border Bulletin and our online website have received national recognition annually, due directly to Bill Moore’s personal leadership and efforts.  The success at the national level has largely been due to the personal efforts of the members of the board, and past members of the board, who continued to volunteer their free time, weekends and evenings, long after having served their nation with distinction on active duty.  

At the local level, BG Jack Kotter has literally transformed the Chapter’s 501c3 Outreach program enabling chapter contributions to a wide range of active duty and retiree programs.  We are all indebted to Bob Pitt, Connie Sullivan, Steve Barrett, and Martha Caldwell for ensuring we have first class luncheons and social events. Read More
