You are invited to NYRA’s 2010 Annual Meeting!

Written by NYRA Jul 22, 2010

Who: You
What: 2010 NYRA Annual Meeting
When: August 7 & 8
Where: 1601 Connecticut Avenue, Washington, DC 20009

In less than a month, NYRA’s 2010 Annual Meeting will take place in Washington, DC. This is the event where dozens of the nation’s most active youth rights advocates will gather together to hone their skills, learn more about youth rights, and meet other NYRA supporters face to face.

The event is totally free! We have scheduled a full range of workshops and trainings for Annual Meeting attendees. “Non-Profit Tricks of the Trade Workshop”, “Guide to Emancipation”, “10 Rules for Dealing with Police”, “Fundraising Tips and Guidance” and “How to Start and Run Student Groups”, these are just a glimpse of the activities of the event. Breakfast will be provided on both days and all attendees are invited to a NYRA BBQ on Saturday night after the meeting. You can get more information here.

So come and join us for informative workshops, discussions, movies, meet with our own chapter leaders and members. It is a great chance to learn more about youth rights and how to help advance the youth rights movement. Bring a friend, and make new friends at the meeting. This has been an annual tradition since NYRA was founded, and each year the event gets bigger and better. Not only is the annual meeting an important chance to grow in your understanding of youth rights, build your skills and connect with other NYRA members, it is quite a lot of fun!

We need to know who’s coming! If you are at all planning to attend, please RSVP here.

The meeting is free for all attendees, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t cost us a lot of manpower and money to put on. Please help keep the meeting free by making a donation to support the organization.
