Why Attend Convention?
The reasons that one attends convention are numerous—and so are the benefits! Here are a few ways you can get the most from convention:
Learn the latest in Quota.
You will listen to important discussions on Quota’s bylaws, meet the international nominees, salute Quota excellence in service and new club organization, participate in club management training, hear what’s to come for future conventions, and much more. Your club will benefit from all you bring home!
We value your vision and welcome all attendees to voice your thoughts at the annual Leaders as Listeners Convention Town Meeting. Important issues will be discussed and there will be an open microphone for those of you that want to share or ask questions. Non-voting delegates are invited to participate by volunteering to serve on the Credentials or Bylaws Committee and becoming an integral part of convention. Voting delegates will have their voice heard as they elect International Officers and vote on Quota’s Bylaws.
Expand your Quota network.
Mix and mingle with Quota friends from 12 countries. Learn how Quota is defined in other countries and cultures worldwide. Join your fellow Quotarians for the Opening Ceremonies, numerous receptions, fun events, and the Installation Banquet. Visit the club sales room. You’ll also have time to connect with your club’s Friendship Club match, too.
Broaden YOUR horizons.
We Quotarians spend our year in service to others, but once in a while we need to revive our minds and spirits. Convention is a wonderful time to pamper yourself and focus on ways in which you can grow. Convention allows you to see other parts of the world, meet with old friends and make new ones, participate in personal development sessions, and more! What better service to offer Quota than a rested, refreshed, and rejuvenated you! Every convention offers tour opportunities both before and after the meeting. This is a great way to see a new part of the world with old and new Quota friends.
Learn, learn, learn.
During convention you can learn about those clubs that are being honored for their excellence as the Quota International awards are handed out in numerous categories. Not only is it interesting to see how other clubs are succeeding, but it may spark ideas for your club in the future. In addition, every convention includes an array of helpful club leadership and management workshops.
Service on site.
Don’t leave service behind even if you’re traveling to convention. The Service-on-Site project is one way that Quotarians can become involved. From collecting books for children’s literacy programs to collecting hats donated to sick children, the convention service project is always a great success! Each convention Service-on-Site project is announced on Quota’s convention Web page well in advance of the meeting.
