MEMBERSHIP MATTERS
 
 

Convention Planner
 

BY BOB THOMSON, MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR

Is it time to start thinking about next year’s National Convention in Reno? If your chapter plans to send delegates to the Convention, then the answer is “Yes!” The Convention is not until August, but the number of delegates that a chapter can send is based on the chapter’s active VVA membership as of February 28, 2005. To be represented by a delegate at the Convention, a chapter must have at least 25 active members on that date. If you look at your current membership roster (the “Detailed Membership Report”), do you have at least 25 VVA members paid at least through February 2005? If not, you’ll need to do some recruiting, as well as convincing your lapsed members to renew.

Also, if your chapter membership is near one of the multiples for additional delegates (50, 100, 150, and so on), you might want to be sure that you have at least that many members paid through 02/2005 or later. Please refer to the VVA Constitution, Article I, Section 6, for details on how your membership determines the number of delegates you can send to the convention. Please contact the VVA Membership Department at  800-882-1316, ext. 115, or membership@vva.org if you have any questions on planning your delegate representation at the Convention.
