Mark your calendars now; NYRA’s 2011 annual meeting will take place in the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., on August 6th and 7th of 2011. The annual meeting, held every year since 1998, is host to a congregation of dedicated NYRA members and activists from around the country for a weekend of presentations and discussions about various topics related to organizational growth and youth rights ideology, and even some pretty good barbecuing. This weekend is also the culmination of the annual election of the NYRA Board of Directors, with meeting attendees the first to hear the results. We hope that our early announcement can help minimize travel fares for those interested in coming, and temporary residence is typically available for those who need it in the homes of local NYRA members. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming months.
