118th Annual State Convention
April 12-13, 2013
Spiritual Life Center
Seventy three attendees enjoyed each others presence at the 118th Annual State Convention in Wichita, KS.
We learned that Akela Miller is the winner of our Entrepreneurship scholarship for the fall and spring semesters.
Debrah Winger is the Leads representative for 2014.
The guest speaker, Mary Ellen Brock, was going to give a speech at this convention called "The Power of One". She was detained at the Chicago airport, due to the weather there, and later had to cancel her trip and return home. The speech will be copied into the Kansas Clubwoman for your review.
We celebrated Jessie Peterson, from Salina, who is in Federation 60 years, and the Elcart Club celebrating 90 years in Federation.
The State Music Festival that Kansas held annually has been cancelled. The Festival is now being moved to District level, and we will have to try it, and see if it will work for all districts or not. Finances have been hard to come by the last few years, and the scholarships are too expensive to continue without them. News of this change will also be shared with all districts in the near future.
The convention members voted in favor on a motion made to remove the last sentence of Article V Section 2A of our BYLAWS removing the last sentence for the next term only.
Convention adjourned at 3 pm.
