Young Adult Conference
A weekend-long program for 18- to 30-year-old Society members to learn about SNPJ membership benefits and to voice their ideas, opinions and concerns regarding the Slovene National Benefit Society.
Young adult delegates are elected by their Lodges; those interested in attending the Young Adult Conference should contact their Lodge secretary or the Home Office. The Society pays for transportation, lodging, and meals throughout the weekend.
The format of the Young Adult Conference alternates every other year:
Odd-numbered years - Delegates participate in a typical conference, selecting officers, discussing and debating issues, and electing a Young Adult Representative to the SNPJ National Board (board of directors).
Even-numbered years - SNPJ young adults engage in a volunteer “work weekend” which has benefited the SNPJ Recreation Center over the course of the past decade. Each conference format has been designed to give delegates a true taste of the Slovene National Benefit Society, the SNPJ Recreation Center, and the rewarding benefits of membership that can be found in both.
The deadline for Lodges to elect Young Adult Conference delegates is April 30 each year.
The deadline for Young Adult Conference delegates to complete travel arrangements is May 21 each year.
If you are interested in taking part in the Young Adult Conference, please phone Fraternal Director Kevin Richards at the SNPJ Home Office at 1-800-843-7675 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
