Conventions and Events Tools Project


For the 2018-2020 Conference cycle, we are continuing on with the development of resources that support the successful delivery of local conventions and events. These new materials represent current best practices and experiences of our service committees responsible for overseeing these events. If you have convention or event experience then your participation in developing these tools is needed and welcomed. 

We will be hosting more workshops and web meetings to gather input on other prioritized topics that support convention and event service. Please write to conventions@na.org if you are interested in receiving information about those opportunities. 

As we develop draft materials they will be posted below for your review and input. Please review any posted drafts and forward your input through the link provided or send any comments to conventions@na.org by the due date referenced on the draft.

There are none at this time.

As we complete portions of this project, we will post those resources here. Below is the current list of completed materials:

Program Committee Support Materials

Please remember that we are looking for: 

Tools: 

  • Any templates, worksheets, or forms that your convention committee uses in support of their work 
  • Guidelines, policies, and any other reference resources used by your convention committee 

Ideas and input: 

  • Your great ideas and participation in upcoming conventions and events web meetings 
  • Your participation in our online survey intended to gather your experience based on specific topic area.  

So: 

  • Share locally developed materials with us by sending them to conventions@na.org
  • Send an email to conventions@na.org to receive information about our web meeting schedule 
  • Send comments on the review and input drafts as they are posted
