2021 INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION & ELECTIONS ANNOUNCEMENT

July 28-31, 2021 Jacksonville, FL

Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions going on across the world, the Civitan International Board of Directors voted to give a one-time exemption to the Civitan International Bylaws to allow for a “hybrid convention” in 2021.    There will be two options for members to attend: in-person in Jacksonville or virtually through their personal computer/device. International Elections and voting on the Governance Documents Proposal will still occur during the convention, both for those who attend in-person, and those delegates who register as a virtual participant. Please review the FAQ in the sidebar for more information.

More information will be coming out soon regarding the details of the process, particularly with the virtual participation and online voting experience.  Please monitor your email, this website, and the convention Facebook group for any news related to the convention.  In the meantime, please ensure your contact information (email and phone numbers) is updated at world headquarters and that your club is taking the necessary steps to be in good standing in order to take part in this unique year for voting.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact [email protected]
