To all SMW Officers and Chapter Presidents:
The Executive Board of the Society of Military Widows voted unanimously at its meeting on April 20, 2024, to dissolve the national organization on or before February 1, 2025.  We sincerely regret the need to dissolve this organization which has been so dear to our members but see no other option within our framework and by-laws.
Several actions are needed by our full board and members:
1.  Please DO NOT send new or renewal dues to SMW as of receipt of this notice. If local chapters have dues, they can collect and retain dues according to their by-laws.
2.  Please send a list of any members who have paid renewal dues to SMW since April 20, 2024, to your regional vice president and we will try to arrange a refund.
3.  Most IMPORTANT:  We need all presidents or a representative of each chapter to be present at the convention to help with our transition. A workshop is planned to help restructure each chapter that wishes to continue independently.
4.  Look for our next Newsletter expected to be out in July.
5.  Feel free to contact your national officers for more details as they become available.
6.  As this will probably be our last Official National Convention, we encourage everyone to come celebrate our accomplishments, friendships, and memories together.

                                                             National President
