What is Regional Convention?
It's a four-day event packed with joy, learning, face-to-face connections, hugs and high fives. Imagine sitting in a ballroom with hundreds of leaders from around the region- sharing stories, tips, and ideas from the year, and building upon the relationships that formed months or years ago.
It's a space where new members of the community can feel the energy and love of a global movement. A space for like-minded people to belong and learn new ideas, so they’re inspired to create the work that’s within them. Oh, and of course we'll be electing NTO's 35th Regional Board, hearing the State of the Region led by Eli and Rachel, playing sports in the AZAA / BBGG tournament, and celebrating the Class of 2019 throughout the weekend.
We are also welcoming incredible guests, activists, and educators to share their wisdom and inspire our community. Stay tuned for speaker announcements coming soon!
For some participants it feels like coming home, for others it’s an unwavering sense of belonging. But for all of us it’s an opportunity to unplug, learn, connect, and celebrate the fact that we are all in this together.
