Lightbulb Convention in Phoenix?

Is anyone planning to go to Convention in Phoenix this year? I figure it's officially 2006 now and Convention is just over 6 months away, so it's time to start planning! My mom and I want to go, we just need to do a little personal fundraising because our alum group usually only sends one representative and it's usually the alum group president.

I would love to have the opportunity to go, but as I am new to Gamma Phi, are there specific rules about who can attend? I know at our Alumnae Chapter meeting this weekend we are planning on talking about it, but can someone go who is not an official "delegate" from a chapter or an alumnae chapter?

As a recent AI, I think this would be an experience of a lifetime!

I am not going as a delegate. Any Gamma Phi can attend.

Hi Sisters!
I really want to go to Convention, too. And now that I'm an alumna, I won't be going as any chapter rep, but I'm still really excited about it. I could have gone to Chicago 2 years ago but didn't, and everyone said it was an incredible experience! I was hoping for more info, too since the site, www.arizonagammaphibeta.org isn't updated too often, and here was the reply:

I have gone to the last 4. The costs are approx the following:

Hotel: has been about $100 per night
Airfare: not sure what it will cost for you to fly to Phoenix
Registration: Around $500-$600 for the full time registration (includes all sessions and meals)

This year there is an additional day for alumnae programming (Sunday) and what I saw was that it's in additional costs.

You can keep checking the Arizona site. They should be updating it more and more often, I would think, since the event's getting closer. And I would imagine there will continue to be things in the Crescent. Have people already gotten their Winter Crescent? Maybe I missed mine...
Take care, and hope to see you in Phoenix!

I went to Chicago and it was a ton of fun. I will hopefully be going with one of my chapter sisters and maybe kk_gphib_01 if she wants to/can come, since we had a great time at the last one! My parents have a timeshare near there which we are trying to get for the week to defray costs!

There should be info on the website. Or ask your AC folks when they get it. I think the Crescent is the only place they post the info except for what the alumnae chapters get in the mail.

I think that link will you give you the link to the Convention stuff on IHQ's website. I make no promises, though.

I'm going! It's "near" to me so I'll probably be driving myself across the desert. I'm so excited about the Confirmed Conventioneers Dinner. I didn't get to go last time - this time I get to go and have *two* carnations on my hat!

I really want to go... I guess it all depends on whether or not I'll have the funds to go. I know that a sister from my chapter is going and wants company, but I can't guarantee anything just yet...

Not Phoenix related....

If anyone cares at this point, Convention 2008 will be in Cincinnati.

I care! That will be much easier for me to get to - although I'll be studying for the bar then, scary!

Assuming I do indeed make it to Phoenix, Cincinnati will be my 5th convention......
