National Convention is right around the corner. Can you believe it? If you are still on the fence on registering, just do it. Remember: each Chapter is responsible for sending a Delegate to Grand Chapter. However, anyone can join in on the fun from August 5-9th with a full registration or just for the weekend with a partial registration from August 8-9th.
National Convention is really awesome for a lot of reasons:
- Making new friends
- Collecting all of the awards
- Exchanging ideas
- Helping out local organizations
- Learning how to be an exceptional leader
Two ways you can get your learn on and exchange ideas with other Members is by attending the Idea Labs.
Idea Labs are basically hour long information sessions that are ran by your Chapter Consultants on what the National Office thinks are two topics affecting our Chapters the most. This year you can choose to go to two Idea Labs, just sign up for them when you register.

See a theme here? Leadership! I mean we are in Washington, D.C. where the elected leaders of our country work. Makes sense, huh?
