Countdown to Convention: Greetings from California!

Greetings from Sunny Southern California! 

We, at the California NAACP Youth & College Division, are excited to welcome you to the fabulous Los Angeles for the 2011 National Convention, which kicks off at noon on Sunday, July 24th with an opening session hosted by the members and leaders of Region I. 

This year’s convention will offer a range of opportunities for networking, volunteering, working hard, and having fun in the California sun. We will also celebrate Diamond Anniversary of the Youth & College Division with a special plenary, in addition to youth night geared toward chronicling OUR history in an engaging and inspiring way using multi-media. One very special project will be a commemorative newspaper distributed during the convention with a section that seeks to highlight leaders and accomplishments of the Youth & College Division-- past and present. In the mean time, please fill out this pre-convention survey for youth members and leaders at:http://tinyurl.com/3utw8ut
