​2016 Regional Teen Conference

The Raleigh-Wake Chapter had a total of 30 teens and parents registered for the 63rd Teen Conference held in Portsmouth, VA on June 23 - 26, 2016. The theme for the conference was "Every Great Dream, Begins with a Dreamer". There were a total of 488 Mid-Atlantic registered participants at this conference.

The regional teen officers, which included our own Regional Teen Vice-President, Hunter Martin did a fabulous job planning teen conference. We filled our days with fun activities such as Busch Gardens, giving back to our community through a service project and business meetings.

We are especially proud of the work that teens submitted for chapter awards. The chapter won 3rd place in the display competition! Teen President, Shelby Brown was the delegate for the chapter and Chaz Crosby was our alternate, along with serving on the teen nominating committee.
