"I feel like in a world where we all try to figure out our place and our purpose here, your passions are one of your most obvious guides."
- Nick Woodman

The DKG International Convention in New Orleans did not disappoint! I was privileged to take part in the executive board meeting and happy to serve as a floor page during the general sessions. I always learn more about our Society every time I attend a conference or convention and this one was no different. There were 120 proposed amendments to the DKG Constitution, and we didn’t quite make it through half of them. It was great to see so many members voice their opinions and show just how passionate they are about DKG. Stay tuned for the changes voted by the membership in attendance and how it relates to the Bylaws of OSO.
