Bill Meeks

Secretary

Hi, I’m Bill Meeks, Jr. I’m completing my fifth term as your National Secretary, and this term was full of challenges, to say the least. Loss of revenue caused the budget to be frozen as our Household Goods Program took huge losses; the VVA National staff had to be downsized, which changed our SOP on handling business, and restrictions on social distancing caused numerous problems with holding any meetings at any level. Special meetings and E-Votes by the Board of Directors have kept business moving forward.

 

The Officers were holding Zoom calls several times a week, working to keep VVA open for business. President Rowan called special meetings on Ring Central which were recorded and placed on the web site for the members to review. Vice President Burke was frequently in the VVA National office, working with VVA staff and addressing numerous problems with the building. Treasurer McManus held the financial picture under control and used sound judgement to improve our financial standing to keep operating. Slowly, things are improving and most of our state councils and chapters have held their elections. VVA will hold the National Convention in November, and I ask for your vote to continue as your National Secretary.
