SERIES 2011-2012

3 September 2011

  1. Additional appointments are being made to the National staff. The following appointments are effective immediately.

  2. PCinC James B. Pahl, PCC Max L. Newman and Bruce Gosling are appointed as Assistant National Treasurers. Brothers Pahl and Newman are continuing their roles from the previous administration. Brother Gosling has helped the National organization resolve accounting and tax issues in the past and was willing to serve as Assistant National Treasurer during this administration.

  3. PCinC Edward J. Krieser is appointed as National Secretary for Proceedings and PDC Kenneth Freshley will assume the role of Assistant National Secretary for Proceedings. Given Brother Freshley’s recent election to the office of Junior Vice Commander-in-Chief, along with maintaining his role as National Webmaster, the reversal in roles from the previous administration was necessary.

  4. PCinC James B. Pahl, who is currently serving as National Counselor, will also assume the responsibilities of the Assistant National Counselor – Blue Book. Brother Pahl served as Assistant National Counselor – Blue Book during previous administrations and has requested to continue with these responsibilities in addition to his duties as National Counselor.
