Earning Points at Caucus Meeting

27 Oct 2011 5:50 AM | Deborah Ashcraft

Every session has an opportunity to earn points for your team.  Probably the most difficult session for points is during the caucus meeting, especially if your team doesn't have anyone running for an office.  The secret is to make certain that your delegates meet candidates during the lobbying time on Sunday afternoon; they should find multiple candidates to endorse so they have a reason to speak. 

Each candidate is guaranteed an opportunity to speak, but nomiination speeches for Party Leader, Speaker of the House and Senate are limited by time. There is a chance that the delegates may miss an opportunity to speak because the time has lapsed.  Don't hesitate; grab an opportunity to speak early in the nomination process. 

Remember to read the rules about how we handle elections.  The delegates do not present nomination speeches for clerks or secretaries.

Prepare to have a great time.  We appreciate every coach who has volunteered their time for this event.
