 They are planning a young adult forum during the convention and are looking for representatives from each chapter.  I think that is a great idea and we should have at least some representation from the West.  Note that we still do not have a Western District PFA Youth Representative on our District Lodge. Please let me know if anyone from your chapter will be able to attend the youth forum.
