Written by NYRA Jun 18, 2010

The 2010 Annual Meeting has been moved to Washington, DC. With less than two months to go till the annual meeting the NYRA Board of Directors decided that Washington, DC was the more affordable and convenient option for the meeting this year. We apologize for any disruption this may have caused to anyone’s travel plans, but are confident this will be the best annual meeting yet. Further details will be released next week with information on the meeting and a form to RSVP. Please start making travel plans now!

We are also pleased to announce the 14 candidates running for NYRA’s 2010 Board of Directors.

In order to vote in this election you must be a dues paying member of the National Youth Rights Association; dues are $10 a year and can be paid here. In addition, we encourage active dialogue with candidates in order to quiz them on their views of the issues and management styles and ideas in the event of their elections.
