What to Expect!

As our 2019 Fall Endorsing Convention will be held in beautiful Long Beach, our guests can expect that they will have a comfortably warm time as spend their weekend with us. We expect the convention weekend to be a fun and productive, albeit, daunting time. In order to best prepare, the following information is provided to help you plan your convention weeked: 

Our guests should be aware that the convention center is a relatively large venue and that the convention is very tightly scheduled, with many overlapping events, so consider bringing with you:

  • Water / thermos drink
  • Snacks (apple, string cheese, nuts)
  • Wear comfortable shoes — you’ll do a lot of walking!
  • Pad of paper / pen
  • Business cards / pre-written contact information
  • Your group’s contact information on a 3×5 card
  • Cell phone (make sure your group has phone numbers for one-another)
  • Chapstick
  • Scarf, vest or sweater (room temperatures vary widely)
  • A method for comfortably carrying stuff (backpack or small rolling cart); you will probably acquire stuff during the day as well as what you bring with you.
  • Plan on having a preset reunion location among your group. (Getting separated is easy.)
