PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - October/November 2019
For the past six months the MOAA Board of Directors has been discussing the future of the El Paso MOAA Chapter. Despite the Chapter’s recognition nationally as a Five Star Chapter for the past fifteen consecutive years, and despite having received numerous additional national awards for the Border Bulletin and Communications, the Board of Directors is faced with the exceedingly difficult task of considering the closure of the El Paso MOAA Chapter. Two key factors are influencing this decision: (1) Key leadership turnover and (2) dwindling chapter membership. Several key leadership positions will be vacated this year. The chapter needs new leaders to volunteer and assume these key positions. Additionally, our Chapter, as well as virtually every other Veteran Service Organization (VSO) in El Paso, is facing dramatically decreasing new membership enrollment, impacting both potential candidates for key positions, and membership funds.
