Please share this information ASAP to all Local Auxiliaries.  It will be posted on the website over the weekend and to our Facebook page.


And a BIG THANK YOU to PNP National Parliamentarian Betty Lawson for the heads-up!!


6/1/18 - Good afternoon!


 Just a quick update.


The Department Service Report and Local Youth Volunteer form were found to have some glitches and are being updated.  Those forms as well as the updated National Officers List and National Convention Registration form will be added to the website over the weekend.


Membership to be included in year-end totals and delegate strength MUST be postmarked by May 31.  Please check with your Department for their deadline date so membership can be submitted to National Headquarters on time.


Some reminders for June:



Year-end NEC reports are due to the National Service Chairmen postmarked by June 1.


Membership Awards listed in the Convention Digest due to the National 1st Vice President postmarked by June 15.


NEC Reports for inclusion to the National Convention book are DUE June 30th.  The outgoing NEC shall prepare the Department report for National Convention.  Please send your report via email to and in WORD format.


ALL membership for the 2017 - 2018 membership year MUST be postmarked by June 30.  This will allow processing time so a pre-print card will be received.  Any membership received after June 30 will NOT be processed until after National Convention.  It is our goal to have the membership file to the printer for processing/shipping prior to National Convention.


ALL 2017 - 2018 program donations MUST be postmarked by June 30th however a five (5) day grace period shall be allowed if their convention is held during the last weekend in June.


For all the current information on National Convention, please visit our website at and click on the NEC/NATIONAL CONVENTION tab.


You may have trouble if attempting to file your Form 990 with the IRS prior to the 5th month after your accounting period ends.  If so, please try again after the 5th month.  For example, if your fiscal year ends May 31, you cannot file until November.  If your file date has NOT occurred, a copy of the previous year’s Form 990 MUST be included with your Revalidation.  NOTE – it is your responsibility to send a copy of the new, accepted filing to National Headquarters once it has been received.




IMPORTANT NOTE from the IRS on Form 990 Filing can be found in the PUBLICATIONS tab above.  Please be sure to read before filing your 990 and submitting your 2018 – 2019 Revalidation form.
