MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT/SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT
March 15 and 16 was the Pioneers biennial conference, held this year in San Diego. Three
hundred fifty Pioneers from the four corners of the US and Canada (including your president and senior vice-president) attended and discussed the rewarding highlights of Pioneering and the various challenges that our organization faces. A new membership program “Family and Friends” was introduced. It is hoped the Family and Friends members will participate in various volunteer activities and make monetary donations to Pioneers. Pioneer membership is free to any family and friend of a Pioneer, with the caveat if a Family or Friend Pioneer wishes to be a Board Member or use any of the Affinity benefit services, they are then required to pay a $22 membership fee each year that they remain on the Board or use the benefits. Thanks to everyone for all you do in the name of Pioneers !
Have a safe and happy Summer – Looking forward to seeing you in the Fall!
Ellen E. Miller and Caron Personke
