2009 NYRA Annual Meeting Almost Upon Us

Written by NYRA Jul 08, 2009

That time of year is almost upon us: the NYRA annual meeting, where NYRA members and youth rights activists from across the country gather to discuss youth rights issues, plan strategy for the coming year, and of course to have fun with some of the most awesome people on earth.

There will be a full slate of workshops this year. The full agenda will be released next week, but some highlights that can be announced so far include: a two-hour debate between Students for Liberty and Students for a Democratic Society, a history of the idea of childhood, and workshops from NYRA-Southeast Florida and the Zionsville Student Rights Union.

NYRA’s 11th annual meeting will be held Saturday and Sunday, August 1 and 2, in Washington, D.C. Because NYRA’s old office building has a larger conference room than the new building, the annual meeting will be held at the old office. There will be workshops and presentations for attendees, and there will be a barbecue Saturday night at executive director Alex Koroknay-Palicz’s house. In addition, attendees will be the first in the nation to hear the results of NYRA’s annual election! Paid members will also be able to vote in person during Saturday’s events. Read more about the annual meeting and RSVP here.
