2016 Virginia Young Democrats Convention

The Virginia Young Democrats annual convention is coming up in less than two weeks and we need you to be a delegate!

The Virginia Young Democrats Convention is the time when the VAYD comes together to elect new officers and conduct other statewide business. This year, the chapter at the Virginia Tech in Blacksburg is hosting the convention. Meetings of various temporary and standing committees and caucuses will take place starting Friday, April 8 and conclude on Sunday, April 10. The main event is on Saturday morning on the 9th. An awards banquet (where new officers are also sworn in) will take place that evening.

If you are interested in attending the VAYD convention to be just a delegate or run for office, please register with us. Fairfax Young Dems will cover our delegation's registration fees (until we fill our delegation needs). If you want to attend the banquet, please pay on your own by clicking this link.
