Convention Central

This is the place to find all the latest information on both National and State Conventions planned. Per the LAOH Constitution, conventions will be held every other year with the National conventions being held on even years and the State conventions held on odd years. The purpose of conventions is to elect new officers for the next 2 year term, review and revise as needed the constitution and by laws and to address any other business that may come before the board. Conventions are a great way to learn more about the organization, meet sisters from across our state and great nation and celebrate our Irish heritage. In many cases, the AOH and LOAH organizations hold their conventions together.

2022 National AOH- LAOH Convention – July 2022

Pittsburgh, PA will host the National convention from July 12 – 17. Registration is currently open and information can be found on the convention website: https://www.2022pittsburghconvention.com/

Members are not required to attend for the entire 6 days as most business activities and events will occur on the weekend. More details on the daily agenda will be available as it gets closer. Delegates from all divisions are encouraged to attend the National Convention to vote for the leadership we feel can best lead the LAOH and implement changes that benefit the organization and the great State of Michigan.
