With input from Branch leadership, District members and
the Allied Trades, the meeting has been
critiqued annually and suggestions for changes in format implemented. The Council designed a
District IV Meeting Planning Manual which guides a host Branch through the meeting planning on a
two year preparation schedule. Following these suggested guidelines makes the process much easier
for those individuals who have volunteered to handle the task of hosting a meeting of this size. Over
the years the quality of the meeting and attendance has steadily improved. The Council is a valuable
asset for assisting those Branch's who have volunteered to host.
The Council meets 2 times annually to discuss interbranch
issues and plan for future annual meetings.
The Council is comprised of the Chair, Vice-Chair, an Allied Trades member and each Branch of
District IV has one voting member on the Council (the Branch President or his delegate). The Council
invites and encourages participation in the meetings by any interested branch members in the District.
Your input is invaluable in improving and providing a meeting that meets your educational needs.
