It is imperative that we act now and submit the appropriate forms for Convention Ad submissions. Deadline is April 1st, 2022.

All District Deputies are respectfully requested to place a $500 full page ad in the Program Book. This is accomplished by soliciting each of your Councils and Assemblies for their proportional share.
