Chair: John H.
Convention Registrar: Beverly K.
The Convention committee is currently planning for the next Convention to be held at The Gurney’s Newport Resort and Marina (Formerly The Hyatt Regency) on Goat Island in Newport.
The Convention Committee plans for the next convention at the end of the convention year. The first meeting is announced at the end of the Convention and usually begins on the first Wednesday in April at the Area 61 Offices, 3649 Post Road, Warwick, RI at 7:00 pm.
The convention this year will be held on March 23, 24 and 25 of 2018.
If you are starting out in service, one of the great reasons to join our Convention Committee is the long serving members on the Committee that help new people. Every year, the past Area 61 Delegate serves as the Convention’s Chair. There are opportunities for people who would like to assist in planning and preparing for the annual Convention.
The Convention Committee mails out flyers and assistance with mailing is always welcomed. Every year we have an Old Timers Panel, New Comers panel, Hospitality Room, Door Greeters Decorations, Registration Desk and Marathon Meetings. These all need to be staffed. There are many fun and exciting ways to help out! No matter what your skill level, we have a place for you and we guarantee you will enjoy being a part of this Committee.
How to participate with the Convention Committee:
Attend a Committee meeting and refine your interest. Be a part of the creation! The Committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.
