All registrations and payments must be received by Friday, May 3, 2019.  Registrations received later than this date will be assessed an additional $10.00 fee for late processing.  Late registrations place an additional burden on the host Council and the hotel to ensure that there are sufficient seating and meals for all in attendance.  Credit card payments must be made directly on the website.

Polo shirts  commemorating the 2019 Convention can be pre-ordered, either online or on the paper form.  Make certain to indicate the size desired.  Commemorative shirts may also be ordered at the convention, but at a higher cost to cover shipment.

On Friday, all Bishops, Priests, Council Chaplains, Assembly Friars and Deacons are invited to take part in the Opening Mass  of the convention.  Councils and Assemblies are urged to invite your Council Chaplains, Assembly Friars, Parish Priests and Deacons to attend these events.  Councils and Assemblies should reimburse / pay for any expenses incurred by travel, meals and lodging.

Immediately following Friday’s State Program Award Dinner there will be live music under the stars in the Patio Garden area.  The attire for both the dinner and dancing is “Tropical Casual” (Caribbean/Hawaiian style attire).

Saturday’s Ladies Luncheon will begin at 11:30 AM, preceded by a wine-reception at 11:00 AM.  The theme is “Everything is a Choice.”  We are particularly excited about having as our guest speaker, Brittany Ehrick.  She will show attendees that good can come out of hardships of life even though sometimes one has to work for it!  During the Ladies Program there will be a 50/50 drawing as well as gift baskets to be raffled.  Proceeds from the drawing and raffles will go to Maggie’s Place.  All in attendance will receive a raffle ticket to be used in a special gift basket only.

Advertising in the Convention Program  is a great way to support convention activities, show support for our State Officers and our Annual Convention.  We ask all Councils and Assemblies to place an advertisement in the program.  All advertising information can be found by clicking the "Buy Advertising" button on the right side of any webpage.  Advertising must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM on April 17, 2019.
