2021 IYD VIRTUAL STATE CONVENTION
The future is limitless.
Join us for our state convention! We will gather as members of the Indiana Young Democrats and renew our pledge to increase engagement amongst young voters and elect more young Democrats to office. We will have training sessions to prepare us to lead in our own communities across the state and hear from game-changers making a difference in our political atmosphere. We will also elect our officers for the 2021-23 term. Join us at the convention!
Event Date: June 25th-26th, 2021
Timing: F: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, S: 10 am – 3 pm
Event to take place virtually. More details on programming and speakers to be announced.
We’re excited to invite a variety of talented speakers to our convention. Be on the lookout for announcements of featured guests!
Our commitment to our membership doesn’t stop just because we can’t meet in person. Virtual trainings will be available to give our members the resources they need to make a difference.
We’re excited to transition to new leadership and celebrate the Democratic process! Officers will be elected for a two year term.
We are proud to provide our members a space where they can foster new relationships with fellow activists from across the state.
