Convention Theme Contest

Our 46th annual state convention is coming up in November and we need your help in creating a theme. It’s easy – just click here to complete the convention theme contest form, which will ask for your contact information and the theme you suggest – no more than 50 letters and other characters, not including spaces between words. An example is last year’s theme: “We Are More Than the Sum of One”. Of course, the theme includes “Live the Life You Want.”

That’s it! If your theme is chosen by the planning committee, you’ll win a free banquet ticket for Saturday, November 12. Entries must be submitted no later than Wednesday, June 1 at 5 p.m. The theme will help us design the convention agenda.
