On August 17, 2014 the RCL Eastern Zone Commander and 1st Vice Commander made a trip to attend a meeting at the RCL Post 180. The arrangements for our visit were made by Comrade Dean Brassington, who made sure we were very well taken care of. The meeting was held at the Highlander Restaurant with about 12 members in attendance. After the meeting we all enjoyed a delicious meal and good comradeship.
Before we returned home, we were invited to attend a lunch at the NATO facility on the Norfolk Naval Base. We were joined by several Canadians who work at NATO and who had many questions about The Royal Canadian Legion.
A special thanks to the members of RCL Post 180 for allowing us to join them for their meeting and to Comrade Brassington for serving as our escort and personal guide to the many sites on the US Naval bases in Virginia Beach and Norfolk.

Hello All Comrades,

It gives me much pleasure to give you a report on the 45th Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command Convention in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The following are the newly elected Officers of the RCL Dominion Command:

President: ​Tom Eagles, AB
1st Vice President :​David Flannagan, NFLD/LAB
Vice-Presidents: Tom Irvin, QC
Andre Paquette, ONT
Ed Pigeaum, ONT
Treasure:​Mark Barham, ALB/NWT
Chairman:​Jack Frost, ONT

In addition to reviewing and voting on over 70 resolutions, the election of Officers, presentations of committees and guests, we were able to get to know our fellow Comrades from the Western Zone and European Zone. The RCL Dominion Command provided a room for the Zones to caucus in, which we put to good use. There were about 966 delegates in attendance and even the weather cooperated, no rainy days

Now for some news that directly affects all of us. There was a resolution to raise the Dominion per-capita tax by $5.00. This was soundly defeated by the floor. It was strongly recommended from the floor that Dominion Command needed to curtail it's spending before an increase in per-capita tax would be considered. Those present from the DC Zones voted against the increase in block. So, there cannot be an increase in the Dominion per-capita tax for the next two years. I am sure there will be another resolution addressing this at the next RCL Dominion convention in 2016.

Another resolution that was defeated was to reduce membership categories to two, "Veteran and Non-Veteran". There was great opposition to deleting "Associate Membership" as a category.

I hope this finds you all well and we are looking forward to seeing you in September at the RCL Eastern Zone Convention.

Yours in Comradeship.

Commander Judy Miller RCL Eastern Zone USA
