With the O.G.A. Convention now in the past, it is time to start a new year. I am very lucky to have a fine group of officers working with me, even though we are all individuals we have the same goal in mind. To improve the Association and hopefully make it better.
Our new Web Master, Robert Johnson, of Ali Baba Grotto will play a key roll in promoting our agenda. This year we are concentrating on better communication not only from The O.G.A. to the Grottoes, but also from Grotto to Grotto. We will be trying to prevent conflicting date for special events among each other. We are also committed to attracting more Red Tassels to attend the conferences and conventions. We would love to bring back the break-out sessions for upcoming officers, which would help with future communications.
We would also like to hear problems and ideas each and every Grotto has. To quote our Grand Chief Justice, Tali Atala, “ if you bring us a problem, feel free to give your ideas of how to fix it’.
And in closing I would like to add, that when an O.G.A. Officer comes to visit your Grotto, he is there to for you. So don’t be ashamed to discuss any matters that may be of importance to you.
In Good Fellowship:
Ken Riley PM, OGA President
