“Convention highlights the opportunities”

“Convention highlights the opportunities and benefits of belonging to an international organization.”

Many years ago, I first went to a Convention as a participant – a governor then a board member with the opportunity to make decisions for the future strength of our organization and that was a serious role not to be taken lightly.  I have always enjoyed the opportunity convention offers to travel and experience new cities and new countries – both at convention and following it.

Now, I go to Convention to meet again all of the friends I have made over the past 30 years’ of conventions and to appreciate the changes in Quota that each Convention brings.  I’m still enjoying new cities like Cincinnati.

Convention to me highlights the opportunities and benefits of belonging to an international organization – it makes me feel not only a global connector, but a global citizen.
