In 2017, the annual SCCA National Convention is headed back to Las Vegas, Nevada, January 19-21 for more than 40 planned educational sessions at the South Point Hotel and Casino.
Convention elements planned for 2017 include the traditional Annual Meeting and Welcome Party Thursday evening, followed by Leadership Summit seminars Friday and Saturday intended to provide SCCA members with opportunities to further develop leadership skills, acquire specific SCCA training and network with others from the Club. The SCCA Hall of Fame and Awards banquet on Saturday night then caps festivities.
While there will be a wide range of topics addressed during Leadership Summit sessions, the overall theme for the 2017 SCCA National Convention is “Engaging Our Membership.” Topics to support this will focus on recruiting new leaders, developing strategies to build stronger bonds within our organization, and encouraging members to become involved in multiple aspects of the Club.
Along with traditional content for established SCCA programs, there will also be a focus on creating financial stability within Regions. Other topics include event marketing and communications, and youth engagement. A preliminary seminar schedule is posted on the convention page.
Registration per attendee is $275 this year, which is a decrease of $50 from last year but still includes a banquet ticket. Registration will open Nov. 1 online at SCCA.com.
