We are looking for a chapter to host our 2014 State Convention. Physical facilities (i.e., a chapterhouse) are not a requirement to host a convention. A large meeting room in a hotel is a fine location!! If you have questions please contact your chapter State Director, National Director, or e-mail the Division Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
National Convention will be held in Fredricksburg, VA July 23-27 2013. We will gather at Fredericksburg Hospitality House and Convention Center. We have the entire hotel for our Convention!! For more details please visit http://www.va-iwla.org/events_2013-07-23.html
The 2014 site will be Orange County, CA and 2015 will be Pierre, SD. There are criteria that interested chapters must satisfy to be considered for a National Convention site. National Convention sites are selected by the Site Selection Committee during National Convention and voted on by the attending delegates and National Directors.
