    Ohio State Conference New Attendees

    Purpose and Guidelines

    The State Conference New Attendee’s Guidelines have been established to inform first time attendees to the State Conference of the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary on   what they can expect and what will be needed to make their conference informative and successful.

    FUNCTIONS SPONSORED BY THE AUXILIARY:

    The dress attire for this is usually casual shorts or sun dresses (depending on the weather) please remember you are representing not only your LEO but the auxiliary as well.

    BANQUET ATTIRE:

    You will see some people will go all out while others may wear more casual attire.

    Usually our members will wear dresses or a nice pair of dress slacks with a blouse or sweater.  Wear comfortable yet appropriate clothing. They have many guests that speak at the banquet. This is also when all the awards are given away and the raffles are drawn.

    DRESS ATTIRE FOR MEEINGS:

    1. Dress attire for the Opening Ceremonies will be your blue suit if you have one, if not please wear a white shirt, blue or black pants and a sweater (blue or black) the sweater should match the color of your pants.
    2. Second day dress attire will be business casual, capris are fine, please no shorts during meeting hours.

    GIVE A WAYS:

    1. Each state officer gives away something to the delegation.  Each delegate Usually does the same.  Something small with the name of the auxiliary you are representing or in the state officer’s case their name.
    2. Or you could donate to a charity such as Special Olympics, Police Memorial, just to name a few. If and when you decide to do this, please make up flyers to pass out so the delegation knows this is what you or your auxiliary have chosen to do.  (Linda Hennie, our National President does this). 

    MEETINGS:

    1. You need to bring your dues card as well as know the password.
    2. When attending meetings, you will receive a conference book; this book is very informative. It contains information about your board and state trustees.  In this book, you will find reports from your committee chairmen and all delegates to conference. These reports include ways and means projects and ideas that other subordinate auxiliaries are doing, and ways to support your local lodge and get involved in your communities. They will include ideas on membership expansion and how to get your current members more involved.

    Conference is a time to take care of business but also to encourage new membership.

    We want to be taken seriously and for our FOP to be proud of us and what we accomplish.

    The friendships you’ll make with other LEO family members are second to none.  We understand what it’s like to be in a LEO family.  We are here to support not only our LEO’s but each other as well.  While you’re at conference ask questions, participate, get to know the members and their LEO’s.
