Convention '86 - A Capital Idea - V (Yvonne Kearns)

Convention '86 - A Capital Idea - IV

Convention '86 was an exciting and ultimately, an exhausting experience. I was frustrated at not having enough time and energy to attend all the caucuses and film showings that were offered. The issues discussed were exciting, and it was exhilarating to watch over a thousand delegates adhere to a tight schedule in a democratic fashion. The drive to adopt non-recommended items was a lesson in commitment and persistence.

I particularly enjoyed meeting League members I knew in Maryland who were delegates from their new "home" states as I was. The hours I spent in registration lines gave me the opportunity to get acquainted with the President of the Dade County, Florida League and the President of Sun City, Arizona League.

On a personal level, I had the good fortune to welcome a new grandson, born to my daughter two days before Convention began, She and her husband (son of a League member) live in a Washington D.C. suburb.
