Our annual convention is our largest member meeting and a great opportunity to make sure your voice is heard on matters that will guide the chapter through the coming year.

We hope you can join us to:

  • elect Steering Committee members
  • vote on proposed amendments to the bylaws
  • propose and vote on resolutions
  • learn about our current work

Our current constitution and bylaws can be viewed here.

You can review the meeting packet – which includes the agenda, proposed amendments, proposed resolutions, and a list of those running for steering committee positions – ahead of time by clicking here. The proposed set of revised bylaws, to be presented in September and voted on in November, are available here.

Limited printed copies of the packet will also be available at the sign in table – please help us keep costs low by bringing your own printed copy or by using our digital version if you’re able!
