Day 1 at the 2008 RA

The 2008 RA started on Thursday with a 7pm caucus meeting for our delegates. While the caucus got under way early, it was an even earlier start for members of the New Business committees as their day started at 6am. The members of the committee discuss issues and take positions on them before bringing them to the entire delegation to debate.The caucus ended at 9am and we all boarded the buses and headed to the convention center.

The highlight of the day was President Reg Weaver's final keynote address. As usual, his words were uplifting and motivational.

We also had the opportunity to hear from Governor Mike Easley of North Carolina who talked about the great commitment his state has made to education. Governor Easley received the first America's Greatest Education Governor Award.
