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.

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 stead.  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.
