OCT Meeting

October 17th, Thursday, 1300 at Astoria American Legion.

From the President;


1300 Thursday 17 October at the Astoria American Legion, we will be having our monthly CPOA meeting. We have a lot to cover in terms of chapter business. We will take a vote on our Chapter involvement with the Heroes of the Sea 501 c3. If you have ideas or big goals for what you want to see our CPOA do for the community , or for our people bring them. The key to this is pushing further than seems attainable. If you have suggestion to by-laws verbiage that will protect our chapter please bring those suggestions. Regardless of our chapters involvement with the “Heroes of the Sea” we will remain autonomous. The partnership will be one that has the ability for our chapter to offer things that no other chapter can offer. Thanks for your consideration and attendance. See you there,

Lower Columbia River CPOA
