Each active KON chapter is eligible to send one official voting delegate to Conclave, identified through chapter procedures (typically the 2018-19 chapter president or another officer). Any number of chapter members may attend Conclave, but only the official delegate votes for the chapter. At a minimum, chapters are encouraged to support the official delegate with travel reimbursement. KON National reimburses registration for one official chapter delegate.
