I have some very exciting news to share with all of you. On October 2, 2018 FCSLA opened the first branches ever in Anchorage, Alaska!
Yes, I said Alaska!
Congratulations to Jim Donovan, Regional Sales Manager and Jim Davis, Agent, who worked so hard to sign up the required number of new members. Our new branches are S-634 & J-544. For those that are not familiar the "S" branch is for members age 16 and older. The "J" branch is for members age 15 and under. Jim & Jim (kind of like Mike & Mikesports talk show hosts in the morning) you guys did an awesome job!
Thank you! Congratulations to the first branch officers of S-634 & J-544 Rachel Ruskamp, Branch Secretary and Haylee Donovan, Branch President.
I know you both will do great and you are lucky the branch opened just as we were sending out the new branch manual!
The grand opening dinner took place at Glacier Brewhouse. As you can see by the photos, everyone had a great time. Especially the kids. They are our future. It is good to start getting them involved when they are young.
And last but certainly not leastAl Heiles, National Sales Manager thank you for making the cross country trip to celebrate this historic opening.
Congratulations to everyone! This is a milestone for FCSLA to now have two branches in Alaska!
