Southern District Conference

We will not be holding a Southern District Conference in 2019. However, the 2019 SHAPE America National Convention & Expo will be held in Southern District at the Tampa Convention Center, April 9-13.

Ashley Grimes and Hollie Newnam will co-chair the Local Arrangements Committee (LAC). They are looking for volunteers to assist with a wide variety of convention-related items such as:

  • Room monitors — introduce speaker, room count

  • Seat drops — placing items on seats before the general sessions
  • Express check-in
  • Equipment — checking in and out
  • Collecting tickets at special events
  • Escorting guest speakers
  • Distributing T-shirts
  • Exhibit hall badge check
  • Directing people to special events
  • Help desk/information desk

If you are interested in volunteering at the national convention, please contact either Ashley at or Hollie at

We look forward to working with all of our Southern District friends to ensure  convention attendees have a fabulous time in Tampa!
