Hello everyone. I have received the formal approval of the board in regards to the BOF - Military & Veterans. Escapees BOF - Military & Veterans is now an official BOF. As this a BOF and not a chapter, there is no requirement for elected leadership, By-Laws, various reports, etc. However, the BOF must abide by Escapees Directives and submit a membership roster annually.
