Description

Our Mission: Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

We must keep our momentum alive with so many challenges ahead of us. This year's biennial convention will focus our efforts on addressing lessons we can learn from the past and carry them into the future. Of umost importance is your Local League's input for our Indiana State goals and priorities. Along with our normal business agenda, we have planned a diverse set of speakers to carry our mission forward and give us new insights. They include Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush; Andy Downs, Director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics; and a special performance on the suffrage movement by story performer Sally Perkins. There'll also be a Speed Leaguing event. Attendees will move from table to table asking their questions of “expert or experienced” panelists about anything League related.

Accommodations: A block of discounted rooms have been reserved at the Holiday Inn Lafayette for both Friday, April 26 (if you are coming from a distance and want to arrive early) and Saturday, April 27. Departure is set for Sunday, April 28. Individuals are responsible for their own lodging. The rate is $125 per night plus applicable taxes. PLEASE NOTE: The hotel will hold the discounted block until April 5, 2019. Use this link to register online at https://tinyurl.com/y6opq52p.or you can call them at 1-800-HOLIDAY (465-4329). When you enter the dates of your stay, the discounted rate will show.

Meals: Breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday are included in the registration fee. Saturday will be a "Dinner in the Round" in various Lafayette restaurants with special guests to discuss issues at each location. Attendees are responsible for the cost of their own meal.

Silent Auction: There is a long tradition of raising funds through a silent auction at the convention. We encourage all attendees to bring something appropriate to auction off and also ask that you spread the word to your Local League members who cannot attend for any donations that they might have that you can bring to the convention. Auction items will be set up Friday night and early Saturday morning.

Convention Costs: The registration fee for the whole weekend is $65.00. The fee for 1 day is $50.00. Fees cover all the meals noted above and all convention material.

Registration Deadline: Please send in your Convention reservation by Tuesday, April 23. If you intend to stay at the Holiday Inn, again, those reservations must be made by April 5.

Voting Delegates: Please note that when you complete the registration, you will be asked to give us information about whether or not you are a voting delegate. Please discuss with local League leadership who will serve as a voting delegate. Each local League may send their president and one additional member as a voting delegate. Additional delegates, one (1) per twenty (20) members based on the 1/31/19 member count, may vote.
