POPPS is Tops
By Pamela Stallsmith, Virginia
Are you a past president of a state affiliate? Then you’re eligible to join POPPS — Parley of Past Presidents. And now it’s even easier to become a member, thanks to a change in NFPW’s renewal form.
When you renew, you can add the annual $10 POPPS dues to your NFPW membership. No more remembering to bring your check or cash to our annual meeting during conference! POPPS is also open to national past presidents.
POPPS members volunteer during national conferences, pitching in where the host affiliates need help, whether it’s taking meal tickets or staffing the registration table. Former POPPS president Marlene Cook of Illinois describes POPPS as an auxiliary, offering support wherever needed. Additionally, POPPS donates to the Endowment and Education funds.
POPPS is a mainstay of our national conferences. The group was formed in 1971 in Scottsdale, Ariz., at the suggestion of then NFPW President Mildred Michie of Planthold, Mo. The object of the group, according to its bylaws, shall be “to keep in close contact with and retain the dedicated interest of NFPW affiliate past presidents, to promote the ideals, programs and projects of NFPW, and to contribute tried and experienced leadership for assistance to NFPW.”
At the Utah Conference in August, POPPS elected the following leadership team: Pamela Stallmith, president; Ann Lockhart, secretary; Karen Rowley, treasurer; and Julie Hoffman and Glennis McNeal, newsletter editors.
