Food Committee

Tues night is Host Camp Night. Registration day may have a ‘Warming of the Hands’ type social dinner/get together or sponsored meal.


Wednesday night is usually an opportunity for a sponsored dinner. Consider other Native organizations to sponsor dinner such as CCTHITA, Village or regional Corporations, Dance Groups, IRAs or other camps local


Thursday night usually is Memorial Service so there is usually no meals unless time is expected to be made. A light snack meal may be provided.


Friday night is the ANS GC Native Food/Dance night. Local camp may need to help along with alternates.


Saturday night is the Grand Ball night and is handled by Grand Camp Kagwaantaans, but local camp may need to help some. A dinner may be provided by a sponsor prior to the ball.


Lunches, committee may approach Churches, individuals, groups and organizations who may wish to fund raise or other such organizations.


Breakfast is a continental breakfast put on by local camp or sponsor





Convention Booklet - Program

If possible fix up a convention booklet with convention agenda inserted. Solicit from businesses advertising for the booklet. Try and find pictures of previous conventions or delegates or anything the committee feels that would be of interest to delegates. This can be a big part of fund raising.




Generally, focus on dinner hosted by camp and anytime their assistance is needed by Grand Camp or others who may host a dinner. Things such as kids performances, indviduals like Gene Tagabon, performers interested in donating, or other appropriate entertainment. If speakers need to present during dinners or lunches make allowances for that.



Floor Manager

Makes sure hall is always ready for convention activities. Responsible for loudspeakers, setting up tables, locating committee meeting rooms and so forth Could be a Hall manager with Grand Camp/local Sgt-at-Arms assisting. (A suggestion would be to have local camp elect 2 SA for convention)




Boiler Room

The boiler room is the area provided for making copies, collating copies, sorting papers, typing documents, having clerical support for convention.
