From the Desk of The Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A., Inc
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
We are now approaching December of 2016 and before you know it we will be into January of
2017 and time for our Mid-term Conference. I have received word that, as of today, we have
only five (5) Patriots register.
Patriots as a reminder you have until January 10, 2017 to get your registration into the
Adjutant for the Mid-term Conference. Any registration received after January 10, 2017 are
considered late and will be charge a $45.00 late registration fee.
The hotel has a cutoff date of December 23, 2016 for you to reserve your room at the rate of
$100.00 per night. After the December 23, 2016, the room rate will be subject to a price
increase which could go to over $200.00 per night. Let the reservation clerk know that you are
with the Military Order of the Purple Heart and use code "MOPH" when making the reservation.
The Department will not be calling the hotel to ask for extensions of the cutoff
date this year.
The Conference will start at 9:00 am on January 18, 2017 with a training/information session
first for Adjutants, Finance Officers, SWR/VAVS/Welfare Officers, Chapter Commanders,
Senior Vice and Junior Vice Commanders. If you have an Adjutant, Finance Officer,
SWR/VAVS/Welfare Officer, Senior Vice or Junior Vise Commander that would like to attend
the training/information session only and not stay for the conference I will waive the registration
fee. If they stay for the entire conference, then the registration fee is required.
This is your Department of the MOPH, Department of California, I'm here to see that the
Department runs smoothly and according our By-laws. Your voice during the conference on
matters of the Department controls how the Department evolves. Please make your reservations
with the hotel before the cutoff date and get your registrations into the Adjutant Gary Rutledge.
If you plan to attend but maybe tight on money until after January let the Adjutant know by
email. We may be able to work something out.
See you at the Mid-term Conference,
