Although I was a little nervous being the only girl from our chapter going to D.C, I was able to branch out and gain connections with chapters all over the nation!
It has always been my goal as a member of the executive officer team to expand our connections with our national chapter, and the convention definitely gave me the opportunity to do so. Not only did I get to tour parts of our nation’s capitol, but I also learned about our new national chapter website (found here)and was able to expand my skills on conflict management and the usage of social media within our chapter.
The speakers were truly motivating, and I highly encourage our girls to go to future conventions! 2012 Convention will be held in Omaha, Nebraska October 11-13, and I am excited to see our group of ladies attend and further develop the wonderful chapter we have already created!
