Convention XXVI Information

Joseph S. Koury Convention Center
Greensboro, North Carolina
September 11-18, 2005


Elections were held for all members of the USMS Board of Directors. This was the first election of officers since the board makeup underwent sweeping changes as a result of last year's convention.

After a two year's worth of hard work by the Governance Task Force and several fruitful public sessions at convention, the House of Delegates approved changes to the committee structure of USMS.

The first-ever USMS Communications Award was presented to June Krauser, and the award was renamed the June Krauser Communications Award in honor of June's many contributions and innovations in the field of communications with our membership over the years.
