The 2020 YMCA Youth Conference on National Affairs (CONA) is June 27 – July 2, 2020. We will leave by bus on the afternoon of Friday, June 26 and return the afternoon of Friday, July 3.
CONA Applications are due by 11:59 pm on this date. Applicants will be chosen by a selection committee based on the responses submitted on the application. Past participation at CONA is not a guarantee of selection for 2020.
All applicants will be notified if they are a delegate, or an alternate.
For those selected, a $100 deposit will be due by this date.
There will be a retreat for the Missouri and Kansas CONA delegations in Jefferson City, Missouri. This will be a Saturday-Sunday retreat, with arrival around 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. More details will follow. All Missouri CONA participants must attend the retreat to attend CONA, or communicate ahead of time their conflict and make arrangements with the State Office. Kansas students will be invited to attend, but attendance is not a requirement to attend CONA.
The remaining fee balance of $850 will be due this date, as well as the deadline for submitting all final registration information and proposal submission.
