Yay! I'll be at convention too! I was just wondering...are the dresses supposed to be more formal? This is my first one.: )

First night dinner-semi formal
2nd and 3rd nights-pin attire
4th night (closing banquet)-formal

Any business meetings NEED to be pin attire.

You MUST have a white dress/skirts/slacks/top for the processional. All white.

There's tons of white on sale now. I bought a white dress at Target (mossimo) and then I bought on yesterday for Founders day at Express. I saw them at practically every store. It should be easy finding white this year unlike in 05 (man I had problems finding white then)

any other questions please ask.

Grand convention. Convention is done every two years, on the odd years. VLS is done on the even years. Convention is a different location everytime. At convention the voting delegates vote on a variety of things. There are also seminars for the non-voting delegates.
Chapters usually send their President and EVP. I'm not sure if the advisor is paid for by the chapter but usually an advisor for the chapter attends as well. International officers also attend. The chapter President is the voting delegate. Some chapters can send quite a few girls where others just send their voting delegate.
When convention was in Phoenix in 05 a lot of Phoenix alum attended, mainly because it was easy for us to attend. :D
It's our 156th convention (because we've been around for 156 years).
Any other questions. Feel free to ask.

Oh let me rephrase, eek, what I meant is the President is usually the chapters voting delegate. Obviously if the president is unable to attend, then whoever goes in her stead is the voting delegate. Oops, sorry.

I've never attended convention as a voting delegate. heck this is only my second convention.
