Conflict Dates

Convention Dates and Conflicts

May 26, 2020 Rob Macdonald, Evergreen Director of Events

           

Over the years, Evergreen has struggled with the 6 convention dates it requires every year. We want to ensure that Judges are available and avoid conflicts with holidays and SAI convention dates. Chapters can choose and participate and host these conventions, and plan for the future. Here are the “assigned” dates for the Division and District conventions 2021-2025.

There are some exceptions in the assigned dates:

SAI Region 26 (Western Canada) has conflicts, but they are with all the US Divisions II, IV or V.

Division III (Alberta) conflicts with Memorial Day, but that has been no problem in the past.

 

Flexibility:

There is some flexibility in the assigned Convention dates, should the host chapter have issues with venue and hotel, for example. They may be able to swap a weekend with another Division convention.
