This was my second time attending a General Convention. My first was in Austin, Texas (2018) and recently in Baltimore, Maryland (2022). Having experienced it once before I had some familiarity on what to expect although many changes were made due to the pandemic. The business was streamlined, and we accomplished much in a short amount of time. Perhaps this will be the new norm for future conventions. What was important for me was how our Hawaii deputation got together for breakfast to start the day. This bonded us even more than we already are. If you are thinking of running as a deputy for the General Convention in the future, I highly recommend it!
