                                                                      Honolulu Conference Venue

     District 13 has 2 conferences a year, one in the spring and one in the Fall. Spring conference is a change of watch      conferences.  The membership elects a new bridge, commander, executive officer, administrative officer, education officer, secretary and treasurer.  A representative from National is invited an will swear in the new bridge.  it is usual a two day affair.  We start on a Friday evening with either a Casino fun night or a there will be a theme, and each squadron will pick how they will decorate their host room and some members will dress accordingly. 

Saturday we have workshops in the morning and after lunch we have our general business meeting. That is also the time we have presentations and awards.  Saturday evening is dinner and dancing.

District 13 has a tradition, when a member has gone through the chairs of office up to and through commander he is thought of as Tom Cod, a useless fish of the sea..  So we have a ceremony to induct him or her into the Tom Cod Society.  We have special hat for him or her and a special song we sing.

   

As you can see also note the Official Chief Tom Cod Splendid Hat. We really do know how to  have fun.
