DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT "FREE" REGISTRATION?
WOW! What an exceptional opportunity to First-Timers! For the first time ever, UPMA is offering free registration to first timers (Active and Retired) to attend the 2020 National Convention in St. Louis! Here is how it works: You MUST register hard-copy by printing the ST. Louis Registration Form, filling it out, and mailing to the national office. You CANNOT register on-line. You MUST pay the $95 registration fee in advance. AFTER attending the convention, you MUST submit a form provided later to the National Office to be reimbursed. The pre-registration reserves your seat at general meetings, hospitality rooms, entertainment events, and all planned food functions by allowing the Planners to know how many to plan for. If you have never attended a national convention, this is YOUR year to see what it's all about. We are certain you will be back!
MILITARY RECOGNITION PROJECT: from President
Eva Finley, our National Retiree Editor, is planning recognition of Military Veterans at Veteran Homes in the area of the Mohegan Sun. I am asking each state to be a participant in the "Lap Blankets for Veterans" program. Look for simple instructions from Eva forthcoming soon. Time and cost involved is minimal but the rewards will be enormous. The Blankets will be presented personally at the homes. I am excited about this endeavor and look forward to further information from Eva and I hope you are as well. Keith Miner from New York, who is coordinating our Military Recognition Ceremony at the national convention, is working with Eva to get the blankets to their new homes and into the lives of Veterans in the area. Look for something special coming for our Veterans during the special Military Recognition Ceremony.
