More about the Convention

We have not had a convention in three years because of the pandemic. We have a lot of business to catch up.

It has been very difficult to maintain the business of the Association without connecting with members at the conventions. The board of directors and officers have made many changes to continue business during these difficult times, including creating the new website.

Join us to talk about those changes, elect new officers and board members, update the bylaws, and the most important reason why we meet—to be with our friends and meet new friends.

We plan to publish and continually update the business to be discussed and voted at the convention on the secure member page of this website. The Association bylaws allow all regular members in good standing (dues are current) to vote at the convention.

This year we plan to use electronic voting for members who cannot attend the convention. Members planning to attend the convention can use electronic voting or vote in person. We will send details on the electronic voting in future updates.

Members who have not activated their account for the secure member page can go to Reset Password Page and follow the instructions. This resets the password from the system-generated password when we imported member accounts. Only current members may use this link.

If you are interested in joining NATEODA and joining us at the convention, we encourage you to apply for membership now on our Join page.
