Housing confirmation notices for the Charlotte National Convention have been emailed from the Doubletree Inn to convention registrants. They should all be delivered by week’s end to those who included an e-mail address with their registration. All registrants will receive a letter next week from the Department repeating the confirmation number and providing other information about the convention.
Demand for tickets for the National Commander’s Banquet at National Convention has exceeded the supply. As it stands now, orders for banquet tickets will be filled by date of receipt at Department Headquarters, earliest to latest. We have requested additional tickets as they come available and will consult with other departments to obtain more if possible.
The Department is testing a new automated telephone response system. The system eliminates the need for a receptionist to answer and direct your calls. The selections have changed, so be sure to listen to the choices carefully. The answering message on the system is being revised and shortened to allow you to get to the menu more quickly. You should expect your call to be answered immediately upon transfer, or returned at the first possible opportunity.
