First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association Leadership Responds to Coronavirus
Read Messages to Members, Agents and Recommenders
The President's Message:
We at First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association are committed to doing our part in containing the coronavirus (COVID-19) national emergency. The health and safety of our members, employees, producers, branch and district leaders and everyone in our community are of primary concern and importance to us. Our home office in Beachwood, Ohio is now closed as of March 20, 2020 until further notice. Most of our dedicated employees are working remotely, so if a member, agent, recommender or visitor needs service please contact us by telephone so we can assist you. We appreciate your patience during these trying times.
We recommend that branch and district events be cancelled and rescheduled. We encourage you to continue to communicate by phone or other electronic means until we return to a more "normal" state of affairs in this great country of ours, the United States of America.
I have appointed a Task Force made up of Karen Jakubowski (or designee), Head of Human Resources, Chair and the other key members of our management team to work with me as this emergency evolves. I invite you to read the other message from my colleagues on the website as well.
As we have weathered many storms and challenges in our 128-year history, including the 1918 Flu Epidemic, the Great Depression and World War II, we will weather this challenge with grit and courage too! We have been fortunate to have many great leaders and we are strong both financially and fraternally. With a membership base of 109,000 members, FCSLA's assets exceed $1 Billion and our surplus is over $107 Million.
May you and yours be safe and keep healthy in these challenging times. You can count on FCSLA to be here for you!

From the Desk of Our National President:
Cynthia M. Maleski
Dear fellow branch officers,
Do you have a few crocuses in your garden?
We now begin the season of Lent and the beginnings of spring. It is a perfect time to clean our cabinets of old papers, clean out drawers and closets and begin a stepped-up walking program. Don't forget to SHRED all old branch materials so we do not inadvertently release confidential information. In our spring meetings, let us remind our members to sign up a new member by contacting a licensed FCSLA producer for your branch or in your area or by calling the home office at 1-800-464-4642 extension 1062 for life insurance new business. It is imperative we continue to bring in new members!
We congratulate all members, friends and Catholic womens' organizations in the United States that comprise National Council of Catholic Women's on its 100th Anniversary on March 4! NCCW was formed in 1920 by the National Catholic Bishops to give Catholic women of our country a common voice for unified action in matters affecting Catholic or national welfare. Today it partners with Catholic Relief Services, Bread for the World, US Catholic Sisters against Human Trafficking and Catholic Climate Covenant. Its mission and programs are to support, empower and educate all Catholic women in spirituality, leadership and service, responding with Gospel values to the needs of the Church and society in the modern world.
Happy Women's History month as well!
