The countdown to 2018 National Convention is down to 85 days. However, the countdown to the end of the academic year is even sooner. If you are attending National Convention as your Chapter’s Delegate, here are a couple of things that you should do while you are still on campus to prepare.
Review 2018-2020 National Council Nominees
This year we will be voting upon the 2018-2020 National Council. The nominees have been announced and while it’s the Delegate’s responsibility to debate and vote upon the nominees, they should discuss with their Chapter first. The Delegate should represent the Chapter’s opinions when voting, however, Nominees will have the opportunity to present prior to voting and this may change the Delegate’s voting direction.
Review the Proposed Amendments to the Constitution
Another important thing to review with your Chapter is the list of Amendments to the Constitution that will be debated and voted upon. The Delegate should discuss each Amendment with the Chapter and take down notes that can be used during debate. Again, debate may cause the Delegate to change their voting direction, however, as a representative of the Chapter, it’s important to go into debate knowing the opinions of those your represent.
