REGISTRATION OF VOTING AND STAND-BY DELEGATES

All delegates planning to represent their AVVA group must register on or before the stated deadlines.  The deadlines are printed on the registration forms.  Please remember that all delegates will have two forms to turn in to two different addresses.  The delegate form that applies to you, as well as the AVVA Convention Registration Form!

Read the forms carefully, as there are two forms, each for a specific delegate type. One form is for Elected Delegates, and their "Stand-by" Alternate, and the other is for Voting Alternates. (You must have already turned in your election result forms to the national elections chair by the deadlines given last year, in order to qualify.)

ELECTED DELEGATE:  This would be the ELECTED chapter or state representative, the ELECTED chapter or state president, or the ELECTED at-large represetative. 

STAND-BY ALTERNATE: This is your alternate who is attending the convention in case there is a need for them to step in for you at some point, but who is not voting unless you become unabe to continue the convention duties.

VOTING ALTERNATE: This is the person who you, as the elected delegate, have appointed as your alternate, and who will be registered as the voting person for your group, in your place.  This form is used if you have determined that you (as the elected rep) cannot attend the convention, or cannot perform as the delegate yourself.  This person will be the voting delegate for the entire convention.

EXTRA CONVENTION BAGS

YOU CAN ORDER EXTRA CONVENTION BAGS AHEAD OF CONVENTION!  The bag was changed, due to unexpected circumstances, so the bag that will be used is pictured below.  If you would like to have more than just one or two extra convention bags, you may order them ahead of time and pick them up at convention.  You can contact either of our Products Sales chairs, Kathy.Andras@yahoo.com (Kathy Andras) or shenthorn1@gmail.com (Susan Henthorn), to tell them how many bags you want, and arrange to send payment to them.  The bags will then be ordered all together, and will be held for you to pick up at convention Product Sales Booth.  All orders must be completed by August 15th, 2021.  Cost will be $10.00 each.

The bags will look like the picture below; they will be Royal Blue and Black.


The bag is 15.5 x 12 and has a zippered main compartment with padded laptop sleeve. Mesh pocket for beverage on the side, front zippered pocket for interior organization, pen loop, ID window on the back, D ring and carrying handles with adjustable shoulder strap.
