Hosting the 2012 National NOW Conference
As many NOW chapter activists know a National NOW Conference is an extraordinary opportunity for local chapters. Organizing for the conference will help your chapter increase its visibility in your community, draw in new members and develop new leadership skills among your chapter activists. In addition, the sponsoring chapter receives 10 percent of the net proceeds from the conference.
The 2012 conference is a great opportunity for your chapter to take a lead role in organizing a National NOW Conference.
The National Board will make the site selection at or prior to the June 2011 Board Meeting in Tampa, Florida. Among the factors the National Board will consider as part of conference site proposals are: Facilities, Financial impact, Accessibility by public conveyance, and media opportunities for the organization.
