Department Office Update

In case you haven’t noticed, the American Legion Auxiliary Department of Texas has an incredible staff. These three ladies are dedicated to our organization and keep us on track to be the best we can be at all times. 

This time they have stepped up to the plate in a very personal way. And I have approved their plan. Starting immediately, they will each be working a four day workweek. Below is their rationale and plan in their own words as they presented it to me so that you can see their thinking as well as the schedule they presented and I approved.

“We have discussed cutting our hours to 4 days a week during the COVID-19 shut down to help the ALA with finances. At this time the 3 employees have agreed to work 4 days instead of 5 to help the Department save approximately $1400 a month. With that being said we would like to have a few stipulations with this. We would like to have a definitive end date for this 4 day week. At this point not knowing when this shutdown will end our end date for now will be September 30, 2020. If we are still in lockdown with COVID-19 we can readdress the issue. We will rotate our day off so that the office will remain open 5 days a week. At this time the schedule would be if approved:

Tasha: Tue.-Friday

Sherry: Mon.-Thurs.

Dee: will take off every Wednesday”

This new schedule begins immediately, starting tomorrow Wednesday, July 29th.

In addition to this I would like to let you know that Dee Merrick our Department Bookkeeper has given her resignation notice to be effective September 28, 2020. She has decided to officially retire and we, of course, wish her a very happy retirement.  Natasha and I will work together to determine what is best for the office and will keep you informed as we progress through the process of filling this opening.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
