Current lineup of candidates-Note: no contests!
NC/Wayne Standefer
NSVC/Jon Jacques
NJVC/Steve Bell
Sec/Treasurer are incumbents
Regional Directors only have one candidate each (3 of 4 will be new)
Past National Commander will be John Markiewicz by default
Other EBoard member will be DC of the Year which the EBoard selects. 
C&B Amendments are minimal!

How sad it  is that the organization has no interest from its members to improve/move/spur upward mobility. Partly due to leadership inactivity, lack of foward thinking, Web site problems, decline in membership, and general apathy.
We do not advertise on a national level about ourselves and only seem to focus on the next convention which are getting too expensive for the general membership.  The EBoard cannot find enough to discuss on a monthly meeting basis and has now shifted to a quarterly on-line meeting schedule.  The meetings were not free flowing in that the DCs could not speak unless cleared with NC first, even though they are EBoard members by law.  Only one DC is moving up to Regional level this coming year.  That is a sad commentary on how the EBoard views its District Commanders. 
The only C&B Amemdment seems to concern itself with a rewrite of the C&B into one document.  I (as a DC) have yet to see the proposed new document and I am expected to vote "For" it the EBoard has said.  I think I will vote no! 
We have been told that Bases can no longer have a C&B but only Bylaws.  It was suggested that the Constitutions be incorporated into the Bylaws.  This was to comply with some strange ruling or interpretation by the IRS.  Too bad we have been in non-compliance since 1964!  We need spanked.

I hope the new leadership (EBoard of USSVI) will be more proactive and move the organization forward and come up with some plan to retain current membership and grow us otherwise. 

Those who do not read have no advantage over those who cannot!
