All I can say about the Convention of States Florida Team is WOWZA!😁

I joined the Convention of States movement in 2016 before the election because I had met a very politically charged female. Her passion was electric and I ended up volunteering and becoming a District Captain because I was asked to!

That was cool but no one gave me any direction. I went to meetings but they were boring and I wasn’t talking to anyone really. I went to the 2017 State Strategy meeting in Orlando and it was a complete disaster for me. I wear hearing aids and didn’t have any that weekend so I couldn’t hear a thing LOL This kind of disability goes unnoticed if you are good at just acknowledging that people are talking to you even if you’ve told them several times you can’t hear so smiling and shaking your head affirmatively a lot gets you a long way LOL. Anyway I came away from there dismayed. I had participated in taking some video and before the meeting I was told I would have some control but that did not happen I ended up in a bad lighting situation and with volunteers that wanted to be done with it lol. I tried to clean up the video and sent out a sample and got in trouble. It wasn’t worth explaining myself it was obvious they wouldn’t understand what was happening.

So I continued to muddle around. I had figured out the DD(district dashboard) with the SD’s(state director) help. LOL This organization is acronym crazy LOL does it take that long to say or write the whole word? Maybe if everyone would slow down just a little communication would be easier. I have to go to a web page to find out what everything means when they could just spell it out SHEESH.

Don’t get me wrong! I LOVE THESE PEOPLE! 😍😍

So I got more involved this year when the State director at the time made a Call to Action OOOPS CAT lol for us DC’s(district captains) to have monthly meetings. I was all about it and jumped on it. Since then I am moving forward the best I can I have been promoted to Regional Captain for COSregion 7 with 11 districts and the as acting Captain for Region 6 with 10 more districts! Holy crow now I got somebody to talk too! LMAO😂😎😱

So we are off and running! I have had 1 live meeting and 2 Virtual meetings since July. I have attended 3 meetings with other volunteers collecting petitions and spoke with my state Representative 3 times and have tried many a time to connect with my state Senator but have not been successful. So I am after it. I also have us set up for more things like the local county fair and the STATE Fair yeeha!
