Region VIII Convention

Per the by-laws, Region VIII holds its annual meeting during the second quarter with each chapter entitled to two delegates at large and one delegate for each 25 members.
The Region VIII meetings are conducted to hear reports from the staff of the Region on accomplishments and any new goals that they see necessary to improve the Order, Region and the Chapters within the Region. The Chapter Commanders from each chapter then gives a report on the status of their chapters and any help they may need in the coming year. In addition, the Department Staff for the States of Oklahoma and Texas also use this time to make their reports.
This meeting is also the time when any changes to Region VIII by-laws will be reviewed and approved if they had been submitted within the time required. This is also a time when any recommendations to Nation Order on changes to their by-laws or Constitution coming from the Region or Chapters within Region VIII would need to be reviewed.
The meeting is also the time when elections will be held to elect a Region VIII Commander, Deputy Commander GSO, two Junior Vice Commanders and a Adjutant-Treasurer. The Region VIII Commander will appoint his staff as required. The elected and appointed officers will be installed at that meeting, an evening dinner or at a later date.
