KYD State Convention

Dear Young Democrats,

I am pleased to announce Marion County is the location of the next Kentucky Young Democrats Convention; it will be held March 2-4 in Lebanon. I am so proud of the bids we received to host the convention, and while it was a difficult decision, the Executive Committee believes it will be one of the best conventions KYD has ever seen!

I'm emailing you right now to tell you some important details because I am excited about events and changes surrounding it. Keep an eye out as more information becomes available!

Quick Facts for 2012 KYD Convention:
