Helping Us Grow
By Laurie D. Butts
National Auxiliary President
I want to thank everyone who honored me by electing me National Auxiliary president at the 67th National Convention. I am very humbled to step into
the shoes of my predecessors and continue to fulfill the duties of national president.
I would like to thank all our returning board members for their continued leadership and support. Special thanks to Patricia Jackson-Kelley, Bonita Atkins, Sue Elliott and Sonya Bonenberger for all their help during this time of transition.
I would be remiss not to acknowledge Chanel Dodson for stepping in and taking over secretarial duties. She and all our new first-timers are great assets to our Auxiliary. We welcome you with open arms.
I pledge to do “nothing less than my best” in this position. In addition to fully supporting NAPS, my focus will be on the continued growth of the Auxiliary. As our numbers continue to dwindle, it is crucial we all be focused on recruiting new members.
Starting an auxiliary is very simple. A branch pays $2 per member, plus $1 for the charter; there must be at least five members for a local branch. Auxiliary members comprise spouses, significant others and children over 16 years old.
I am asking all Auxiliary members for their input, ideas and suggestions to help us achieve this goal. We have to work as a team to sustain our great Auxiliary. I look forward to receiving the many anticipated suggestions.
Again, I look forward to serving you well as your National Auxiliary president.
