If You Can't Attend the Convention . . .

by Carol Nave, Chair Promotion & IT

We know that not all our members can make it for the AGO national convention. There are many good reasons you might not be able to travel to Houston this year. Perhaps you have a conflict in your schedule. Or maybe you have other responsibilities at your job. Whatever the reason, know that you will be missed, but certainly not forgotten! Here are four ideas that can help you be involved, even if you didn’t make it to Houston.

1.  Download the convention app to get a taste of convention activities. The app will allow you to have access to the daily newsletter, see photos from the convention, and give you updates as they happen. You can find all the details and instructions for use at http://agohouston2016.com/convention-app A live, online training session will take place June 14, at 4 PM. There are also short on demand videos that can help you.

2.  Plan to watch the two concerts that will be streamed live during the week. The two concerts that will be streamed are:

We will have complete information about streaming the concerts on the home page of the website.  When it's time to access the concert, go to the home page of the website for instructions.

3.  Engage with us on social media. We plan to be active on Face Book, Twitter, and Instagram next week. When you post, make sure to use #AGOHouston2016. Find us at the following social media sites.

             Face Book – we will be doing some live streaming interviews once or twice a day. Make sure to watch.

             Instagram – Find us at AGOHouston2016. You will see many pictures of the convention throughout the week.

            Twitter – Using Twitter is a great way to join in the conversation.

   4.  Read through the blog section of the website to get some fascinating insights on participants and the city of Houston. There is a wealth of information that should inspire you.

We truly wish you were going to be here in Houston with us. But, if not, please join us in the ways that you can. And, as always, support the convention as you can.
