Convention Registration Fees
The convention registration fees are kept as low as possible in order to allow our families to attend. The fees cover meetings and supplies, several meal functions, activities for the children, workshops, entertainment, a souvenir booklet with photos from all families attending, and more.
This is a family convention and babies are welcome except at the Saturday workshops and adult meeting. Any child attending the children's activities and entertainment portions of the convention AND IS UNDER THE AGE OF SIX will need to be accompanied by a chaperone. This could be a parent, friend, or relative. If it is necessary for a parent to stay with his or her children during a block of time rather than attending another activity, it will be time well spent. Often, parents will trade off with their spouses to attend a particular adult meeting or workshop if they do not have a helper.
Auction Items and Convention Volunteers Needed
Our silent and live auctions are the only major convention fundraiser (registration fees do not cover all of our expenses). The auctions are a very popular event that gives convention attendees a chance to purchase unique items that are donated from around the country. Below is a sample letter and donation receipt for you to use when asking for donations. It will only be successful with your help! Whether or not you are attending the convention, if you would like to donate an item (no matter how large or small), please contact Kim Jones at TripletConvention@gmail.com. All donations are tax deductible!
We are also in need of local families to volunteer before or during the convention. If you have a few hours to spare, please contact Kim Jones at 202-255-5091 or TripletConvention@gmail.com.
If you have any questions about the convention, please contact Kim Jones at 202-255-5091 or TripletConvention@gmail.com.
