District 1 Meeting Cancelled

Happy New Years

Toy Drive

2014 - Toy/Food Drive

We recently wrapped up the Holiday Parties for 2014.  A wonderful time was had by all and I really enjoyed seeing and talking with members in both states.  A special thanks to all of you that provided gifts and non-perishable foods for those members in need.  This was truly appreciated and I am proud to say that we recieved well over a few thousand gifts and food items.  Every year the Reps work hard to get the word out to members to come to the parties and, if able, to bring unwrapped gifts and food to donate.  It has become quite a competition to increase the donations (toys and food) for us to share as far and wide as possible with our less fortunate members and their families.  I'm proud to say that this year, the first place award for the most donations was Fairbanks, AK with 223 guests and 384 donations (1.72%) followed closely by Port Angeles, WA with 51 guests and 74 donations (1.45%).  Your generiosity is truly amazing and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!

Happy Holiday and Seasons Greetings,
Daren Konopaski
International VP and Business Manager

Attention Drivers required to carry a CDL

All interstate CMV drivers must have a physical examination at least every 2 years; however, the medical examiner may determine that you need more frequent examinations. All commercial drivers whose current medical certification expires on or after May 21, 2014, upon the expiration of that certificate must be examined by a medical professional listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

How do I find A certified medical examiner?
Certified medical examiners are listed in a registry on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners website. You can find certified medical examiners in your area—or anywhere in the country—by following these three simple steps:
Go to the National Registry website at

Enter the City, State or ZIP Code to find a list of certified medical examiners in your area. You can also use the Advanced Search option to look up a medical examiner by specific search criteria.
Choose a certified medical examiner from the list and call to make an appointment.

It is recommended that you print the page with the certified medical examiner’s information as verification to keep for your records.
