Dear Lucy Leader …

Convention Delegate?!?!

Dear Lucy Leader, 

I’ve been selected by my zone to be a delegate for our zone to the LWML convention in Milwaukee. I’m very excited, but I’m also really nervous. The ladies in my zone have shared a little about what is expected, but I’m still unsure about how to prepare and what is expected of me at the convention. Does the LWML have any resources for me?

Dear Anxious Annie,

That’s exciting for you! Being a delegate at a convention is an exciting thing. If you’ve never been to a national convention, you’ll have so much fun. If you have before, you know what you’re in for. Being a delegate is an important job, as one reason for our conventions is to do the business of the LWML, which includes voting on mission grants, officers, and bylaw changes.

The LWML has produced this resource — You Are the Convention Delegate — for delegates to both national and district conventions. Take the time to look over this to calm your nerves about your role as a delegate at the upcoming convention. 

God’s blessings to you as you pray over your decisions and as you travel to Milwaukee.

Lucy Leader
