Expansion and the State: Increasing Convention Attendance

Although JSA is a year round organization, our primary goal is to have members attend conventions. As Director of Chapter Internal Affairs I have extensive experience in aiding chapters with registration, which has led me to come up with various strategies to increase attendance.

  • Give $10 scholarships for every delegate coming from chapters that have never attended conventions before
  • The chapter that has the greatest increase in attendance relative to their last convention will win a full ride scholarship for a delegate to attend the next convention
  • Combine schools onto the same bus to reduce convention price
  • Create a registration hotline for Chapter Presidents to contact for when they need assistance solving registration crises
  • Work to change the dates of conventions so they better align with students schedules
    • ie: avoid Winter Congress on Super Bowl Sunday, Spring State farther from AP Testing
