President’s Communique’ by Tom Reeve
It is my pleasure to welcome our newest members Don Custis and his daughter Laura Custis, Pastor Daren Erisman, and Jack and Helen Borchelt. We are very pleased you have joined the North County Chapter and we look forward to getting to know you.
Annual Meeting Luncheon
Please save the date for our Annual Meeting Luncheon on Thursday, June 1st. We will celebrate completion of our 31st year at the beautiful Bernardo Heights Country Club ( 16066 Bernardo Heights Parkway, San Diego, CA 92128 ). In addition to the Annual Meeting of the Chapter we have an excellent and very well regarded Program speaker, Vice Admiral (ret.) Charles Martoglio. He is a strategic thinker and will be presenting, 2017: A Year of Choices, Challenges, and Opportunities – for America and the World. He will discuss the numerous security-related challenges and concurrent opportunities facing America and the world in 2017. He will offer suggestions about how America might influence events to move toward a more secure and prosperous future. The Annual Meeting Luncheon will begin a bit earlier than in past years, with registration beginning at 10:30 am. We will have VAdm Martoglio speak before the business of the annual meeting and elections. More details as well as registration information will be forthcoming after the March 30th Board of Directors meeting.
Timely information and well-informed members. It was just last May that we were treated to a talk by John Shu (J.D. USA & G.C. China), about the History and Functioning of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, also known as the ‘FISA Court.’ It may have seemed an out-of-the-ordinary topic about an arcane institution then. Now our receipt of his insight and information about the FISA court enhances our understanding of today’s news of possible foreign intelligence activities and possible United States surveillance actions. And, you heard it here first.
We thank the Remington Club for their continued support and partnership. We are very pleased to be guests in their house and appreciate that their generosity helps make these programs in this location possible.
The North County Chapter presents educational speakers and supports free and fair discussions of foreign policy and international affairs. We work to present diverse viewpoints while maintaining civility in discourse. While our speakers and members have individual opinions, the Chapter is steadfastly non-partisan and takes no stand on any public issue, policy, or candidate.
