 SCV National Leadership Workshop

As we move the challenging years of the Sesquicentennial, leadership training has become even more important to the defense of our Southern heritage. In an effort to insure that our members better understand the challenges of leadership roles and to aid our leaders in acquiring the knowledge to better perform their duties, the SCV has scheduled a Late Spring National Leadership Workshop.

            This year’s event will be held May 31, 2014 at the Richland Public Library at 955 Northgate Drive, Richland, WA 99352. It will be hosted by the Washington Artillery Camp 2178.  A tentative schedule for the day is posted below along with registration and lodging information.
