As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Missouri Department ROA Executive Committee cancelled the Annual State Convention scheduled for April 24-26, 2020 in St. Louis.
After considerable discussion and review of state constitutional directives, it was decided that it would be prudent to conduct the State Department's official business in a TeleConference format. That TeleConference is scheduled to take place on June 20, 2020 at 0900.
All members of Missouri ROA are eligible to participate in this conference and are being notified by US Mail of the date, time and sign-in procedures. If any member has not received that information and wishes to participate in the proceedings, please contact State Secretary CAPT Richard Kallemeier or utilize the CONTACT US page of this web site.
The Constitution and Bylaws of the Missouri Department of ROA are posted on this web site under the drop-down menu button MEMBERSHIP / MEMBER BUSINESS DOCUMENTS.
The Constitution & Bylaws of the organization are in a pdf format and can easily be down loaded /printed for review.
The current list of Missouri Department and Chapter Officers are also on this web site under the drop-down menu button ABOUT US / MISSOURI ROA LEADERSHIP.
Each member is invited to “call-in” and, if they wish to participate, email the Secretary their telephone number. Those names and numbers will be forwarded to the appropriate Service Section Vice President so that a Service Section Teleconference can be conducted prior to the convention. The purpose of this Teleconference would be to select nominees for department offices, discuss any resolutions or C&BL changes and any new business to come before the convention.
Service Section VPs will use our regular teleconference system. State Secretary Kallememier will send that phone number and log in information to the leadership of each Service Branch Section.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning with this election, the term of office is two years. An exception is the National Councilman’s term which is three years in length. The National Councilman position is rotated between the service branch sections and the position is rotated to the Air Force Section this election year. Section Officer nominations are completed by each Service Section.
Service Section positions to be filled are:
· Vice President
· Junior Vice President (must be a 03 or below and in active drill status)
· Executive Committeeman
Sections are encouraged to nominate members for the other elected officer positions of:
· Medical Surgeon
· Dental Surgeon
· Judge Advocate
Convention voting is done by chapter. To cast chapter votes there must be a least one-chapter delegate present.
