DCA Annual Convention

The Annual Convention is held in a warm weather location in the US or internationally and is designed for members and their spouses/guests. Families are also known to attend. At this annual meeting of the membership elections for the Board are held. A key feature of the convention is the annual auction which has grown over the years and is the primary fundraiser for the operations of the DCA. The week-long event is supported through the generous sponsorship of our associate members and features first rate speakers at business sessions, networking events, and local activities. Recipients of the scholarships and the Arthur T. Everham Safety Award are announced at the convention.The final board meeting of the outgoing president and the first board meeting of the new president are held at the convention. A Leadership Council meeting is held as are meetings of the committees. The general meeting of the membership is the DCA Town Hall where the leadership provides an update on the proceedings of the association and where the members can dialog with leadership.
