2019 Cardinal Key National Conference

Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20 in Atlanta, GA

Cardinal Key is excited to announce that the 2019 National Conference will be held Thursday, October 17th through Sunday, October 20th in Atlanta, GA. We will be celebrating all Cardinal Key is doing, as well as discussing how to prepare your chapter for future, and ways to develop a post-collegiate life of service.

Cardinal Key chapters from around the country come together biennially to hold our National Conference and business meeting, as well as build relationships among members and chapters. National delegates and attendees will brainstorm new ideas to enhance each local chapter’s identity and goals, cultivate lasting friendships, and much more.

Highlights of the National Conference include:

• JDRF Walk

• Election of new National Officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, Parliamentarian

• An afternoon to explore some of Atlanta’s attractions

• One-on-one time with National Board Members to troubleshoot local chapter concerns



The National Conference will also include opportunities for delegates to discuss their chapter’s strengths and learn from the strengths of others. Brainstorming sessions will be held to explore service and social events, fundraising, recruitment, and our national philanthropy, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation .

Don’t forget the National Office will pay travel and lodging for one delegate from each chapter to attend! Beyond your chapter delegate, we encourage you to send multiple attendees from your chapter, and even your chapter advisor/sponsor! Many of our current (and past) National Officers (and even one of the Co-Directors) were not delegates, but still attended the Conference. There will be something for everyone from your chapter, whether you are a graduating senior, first semester member, alumnus, or sponsor.

Registration is due by September 15th.

We hope to see you in October!
