AOH NYS Board Spring Meeting Notice

Brothers: 

    The attached Call to Virtual Meeting was sent via US Mail on 4/2/20 by our Worthy NYS Secretary, Tom O’Donnell to all State Board Officers, County Board Presidents and Division Presidents.  The virtual meeting will be held on 5/2/20.  Contact information will be forthcoming. We never rescheduled the State Board Meeting to 6/6/20, only the LAOH did that. If that date holds (uncertain at best in this pandemic environment), it did not appear that the hotels would have had sufficient rooms available for both the AOH and the LAOH. If anyone has additional questions, please feel free to contact me at 716-796-7687 or at Tomlambert12@aol.com.  Stay safe! 

Tom Lambert, 
President NYS AOH
