House of Delegates, Session II

Wednesday, October 7, 2020
8 a.m. – Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. (Room TBD)
This session renders decisions on actions of the Board of Directors and new business brought before the governing body prior to announced deadlines. Officers are elected and installed.

The second session of the HOD is scheduled to begin at Wednesday at 8 a.m. and goes until business has concluded, which is difficult to predict precisely. In the past two years, the meeting lasted three to four hours. Therefore, planning to remain at the hotel until approximately noon would probably be sufficient.
