    The Monthly Membership meeting is how the Detachment conducts business throughout the year. This is where every members' voice is heard and votes are counted. Everyone has equal say and anyone can bring an item up for discussion/decision. These meetings are how we get things done and are able to keep all members informed of what is going on in the Detachment. The Commandant is able to ensure that initiatives to propel the Detachment forward into the future are planned and organized for the best results possible. Committees are the worker bees making things happen and bringing those work results back to the membership monthly while everyone present is able to stay informed as stakeholders in this nonprofit corporation. Visitors are welcome; however, it is recommended to reach out to the Detachment through the Contact page to ensure that there won't be any reason why you may not be able to attend.
