Word from The Aerie President

The strength of any organization is based on the participation of it's members. Our club is no different – we all rely on Aerie officers, employees, and volunteers to keep things running smoothly.

        While active participation is certainly necessary (and appreciated!) that's not the only way to get involved. Have you ever looked at something in our club and had an idea to make it better? Or, maybe you visited another club and saw something they were doing that might be a good fit for us? Or maybe a thought popped into your head that was so brilliant you just had to share?

        This is our club, and it's a pretty good one. However, the best way to make it better is to capture ideas so they can be considered for implementation. In this spirit, I am encouraging each member with an idea, comment, or recommendation to jot them down and submit them in the suggestion box on the wall by the offices. Let's work together to make our club the best it can possibly be!

Bio on Madam President Melissa Birman

Hello Eagle Sisters;

My name is Melissa Birman and I have been a dedicated Eagle member since 2007 serving the London #950 Auxiliary in my hometown of London, Ohio. I served as Chaplain, Secretary, Vice President and Madam President. 

I am happily married for 26 years to my husband Greg Birman. We have 2 sons, 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren.

When I heard some of my Eagle sisters needed officer seats filled in the Circleville #685 Auxiliary, I joined Circleville #685 as a dual member so that I could take an officer seat to help them out. I served as trustee for 3 years and am now currently the conductor for this Auxiliary.

More of my eagle sisters asked me to help fill an officer seat in the Big Walnut Auxiliary #3261, so I transferred from London #950 to Big Walnut #3261 as my home Aerie. As requested, I served as vice president for Big Walnut auxiliary #3261. I am currently serving as Madam President for 2021-2022.

I have served several officers seats for auxiliaries, and I am willing to help out when I can.

I have served District 12 as Co-Chairman, Chairman, District Leader and I am currently serving my 3rd year as District 12 Secretary.

I have volunteered to work Central Zone tables and hospitality rooms for Past Madam State Presidents, and I am willing to help my Eagle sisters whenever I can.
