2015 Convention Updates

New Year's Resolution Proposal?

There is no time like the present.

As many of us prepare for winter holidays and the transition from one year to the next, we may also reflect on what brought us to where we are today.  In many ways, USP is doing the same thing. We are looking back at the Resolutions of this last cycle and looking ahead to the upcoming cycle...  But, time is running out!  Have you thought about submitting a Resolution Proposal?  Maybe you want to, but you just haven't gotten around to it.  NOW IS THE TIME!

Looking for more info on how to submit a resolution proposal?  Watch this animated video.
