2019 AVA Convention and Biennial General Membership Meeting
June 12th - June 14th
The American Volkssport Association (AVA) invites you to its 2019 Convention and Biennial Meeting in Albany, NY., hosted by the Empire State Capital Volkssporters.
The ESCV Convention site contains all of the details and more about the convention, its walk events, and the lovely city of Albany.
There are 3 walks planned prior to the convention, 3 during the convention, and 2 after the convention. Also, there will be an evening Meet and Greet "Take me out to the Ballpark", Desserts and Music Evening, and a Closing Sit-Down Dinner followed by our National Speaker and the presentation of the AVA Awards to make for a very festive Closing for all. Afternoon workshops are planned, along with the convention business meetings.
This website should provide enough detail to allow you to pre-register for the convention. Simply go to the Pre-register page, fill out the form, and authorize the payment using your credit card. After your payment, please print out the waiver form, sign it and bring it to the convention with you. This will dramatically speed up your registration process at the convention.
For questions, or more information, contact Lea Darling (email@example.com).
A smooth running convention is helped with great volunteers. Please consider helping by signing up as a volunteer using the Volunteer tab above.
All pre-convention, convention, and post-convention walk Credit fees will be $3. Also, the convention's Bike and Swim Credit fees will be $3.
