I'm going. It will be my fourth convention (1999, 2003, 2005, and now 2007) and I can even drive this time!!! Yea! I heard that the program submissions to be a presenter should come out soon. I'm hoping a program of mine will be selected.....*crossing fingers*

I am really going to try to go. If I do make it, it will be my second one. 2005 being my first. Really hope I can save the money for it.

I'll be there ... this will be number 15!! (oh my goodness has it really been that many??)

Does anyone think that there'd be interest in a program/session on greekchat and/or internet resources?

Amanda, I've been developing a few programs. I'm not certain which they will select, if any. Oh, and are you going to Convention? I didn't think you were?

I'm planning on it. Just gotta set aside enough money from the wedding planning in order to be able to. I'm not take a "spring break" this year, so hopefully I can save up and go.

I want to be more involved with the 2 chapters in my area. I would love to go to Convention since I never have been there. I've been an alum for 12 years now... would it be helpful/useful for me to go!?!?!

I cannot even explain how convention 2005 affected me. How after only having our charter for a year, we got the Order of the Quill. How I got to meet the Woman of Distnction, Mimi Blackburn Drew, who's a retired Rear Admiral of the Navy, who I got my picture with, red face and crying, which is now in my chapter scrapbook (grrr). I participated in the 5K...I think it was for the foundation (maybe it was a philanthropy, I cant remember). I met most of the women who actively participate on this message board because we had a GC meet&greet. AZ-AlphaXi and AXiD670!

Additionally, my twin and I got attacked by a desert beetle and a scorpion. Ahhh..the stories...

I can't wait to go as an alum and go to the professional breakout sessions, etc.

At convention, you get to make connections with the collegiate representatives for the chapters you want to work with. You'll also get to meet and interact with the alumnae who are volunteers in the support structure. There are breakout sessions on collegiate chapter topics, alumnae association topics, and usually professional and personal development. All of which are open to any convention attendee.

All in all a worthwhile experience.

I am completely in agreement. Convention gives you the professional experience with the sessions, the interaction with sisters, and wonderful opportunities to network among your peers. You also get the ceremonial side, which alumnae don't always realize they miss until they are experiencing it again. Make sure you bring kleenex for the Chapter Eternal session. It will reduce you to tears every time.

LOL....I always have to brush up on my dining skills before convention too! I mean, how many pieces of silverware can you put on a table anyway??? HA!

Oh, this is important.....as a visiting alumnae you are not required to go to every session and meal. You can pick and choose, which can help you save a little money if your budget is tight (Amanda, that might be good to know for you too). I ALWAYS recommend the Opening Banquet, Awards Banquet, and Closing Banquet.

I will definitely be there! I can't hardly wait. I had so much fun at the past two Conventions and at volunteer training this summer. There is no word to adequately describe how great being at Convention is, you just have to be there to know how it feels.
