Why should I participate in the district caucus?

The district caucus is your opportunity to elect the next nominating committee – think of it as senior slating for the national organization. 

Will my attendance count at the business meeting count toward my total convention attendance for nominating committee requirements?

Yes, registering as a delegate and attending both the district caucus and the business meeting will count toward the requirement. As a reminder, you must have attended two conventions prior to the one at which you are elected.

What about confirmed conventionite?

How will 2019 awards be presented?

2019 awards will be presented through the summer with an awards celebration! This celebration will kick off our social media presentation of awards that will continue throughout the summer.

Will there be a service project/event occurring even though we are not gathering in person?

While we would love to do a service project together this summer, we are instead going to focus on the amazing things you are individually doing in your communities and celebrate a ‘Summer of Service!’ More information will be shared in July.
