President Fredric Rolando presided over the convention of 6000-plus delegates. One of many highlights of the convention was on Wednesday August 10, 2022, we all found out that President Rolando wasn’t running for re-election. We wish brother Fred all the best in retirement. Brother Fred told the delegation that his last day as President would be December 17, 2022. Also on Wednesday August 10th, 2022, Region 6 National Business Agent David Mudd was nominated for region 6 NBA and won by consent (acclamation) to serve a four-year term. No one else in region 6 ran against brother David. Branch 2184 has always worked closely with the regional office and we look forward to working with brother Mudd over the next four years. The 73rd national convention is scheduled in Boston from Aug. 5-9, 2024.
There will be convention delegate articles in the September/October Branch 2184 Speaks as well. See you all on the branch membership meeting WebEx on Wednesday September 07th, 2022 at 7:30pm.
