BUSINESS MEETINGS

DELEGATES AND ALTERNATES
Each Chapter of the North and Central American Region may appoint Delegates and Alternates to participate in the Business Meeting at the 18th North and Central American Regional Conference. All Delegates and Alternates must register for the 18th North & Central American Regional Conference.

The number of voting Delegates to which each Chapter is entitled is based on the number of Chapter members registered with Ikebana International Headquarters as of July 31, 2019. One Delegate may be appointed per 100 members or fraction thereof. Alternates for Delegates may also be appointed. If a Delegate cannot participate in one of the Business Meetings, an Alternate from that Chapter may take that Delegate's place.

In April 2019, every Chapter will be notified of the number of Delegates and Alternates that it may appoint and will receive a form for listing the Chapter's Delegates and Alternates. The completed form must be returned to the Business Chairperson of the 18th North and Central American Region by June 30, 2019.
