2015 Convention Updates

Time to Get Serious - And Play!

2015 Convention App Games are Seriously Fun.

If you think about Delegate responsibilities, they are pretty weighty.  In fact, electing the USP Board of Trustees (BoT) and Council of Experts (CoE), considering amendments to the Bylaws, and deliberating over Resolutions will have some very serious implications.

The 2015 Convention is just five months away!  Have you done your homework to prepare for these responsibilities?  The good news is, USP is making your prep work FUN.  Learn a lot of what you need to know for the 2015 Convention and about USP by playing games on the mobile app.  It's a great way to have fun while preparing for your responsibilities.
