Register for the SDS 5th National Convention! October 22nd-24th 2010, Milwaukee WI

It’s national convention time again for SDS! We are asking that chapters and members please consider coming to our national convention, being held in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of October 22nd-24th. There will be plenaries, workshops, and speakers and will be a great way to meet and talk with other activists and learn from each other, as well as party with some great radicals! If you are planning to come to the convention, please fill out the registration form as soon as possible. This will help us with planning when it comes to housing, food, reserving rooms, and allocating funds. In addition, there are limited funds available for travel stipends if you and/or your chapter needs financial help in getting to Milwaukee. These funds are limited, and we encourage chapters to look primarily at fundraising locally or getting your school to sponsor you – but don’t be intimidated to apply! Also - we are not planning on spending a lot of time in decision-making plenaries at this year's convention. If you have ideas for discussions you want to facilitate with other SDSers (how can we make our national organization more effective? what campaigns are most strategic for the student movement? how can students act most effectively against the wars?) then use the workshop submission form to let us know. Register for the convention! The registration form can be found here: www.surveymonkey.com/s/HWSD5LN And the workshop registration form can be found here: www.surveymonkey.com/s/HWTN8RT If you have any questions or other things we should know, email students4democraticsociety@gmail.com See you in Milwaukee!
