If you plan to submit a report for the convention, please follow these formatting guidelines. Reports must be emailed to the district secretary by May 13. Hard copy binders will not be distributed at the convention. The district experienced significant cost savings in 2014 by going paperless, and we will continue this format in 2016. All convention materials and resources will be distributed via the online file sharing service Dropbox. Reports and convention information will be updated regularly on this website. They can also be found in the 2016 AZ-CA District Convention Dropbox Folder. You can download the files from either place. Pastor Hein's keynote address will also be available via the Dropbox folder.
