There may be held annually a convention of members of the National Beta Club in each state, on Junior or Senior level, where the total membership justifies such a convention. The criteria for holding a state convention are: 50 Junior clubs and 2500 Junior members at the Junior level; and 50 Senior clubs and 2500 Senior members at the Senior level. The time and place of these conventions shall be determined by the State Council upon the recommendation and approval by the National Executive Director or his designee in consultation with the State Officers and the State Sponsor. Conventions established prior to 1990 are exempt from these minimum requirements. Junior Beta Members, grades 4-8, may attend and compete at their senior state convention if there is no junior convention in their state. These junior members that attend and compete at the state convention may also attend and compete at the National Junior Convention. A non-convention state meeting the above criteria may begin a convention upon the recommendation of the club sponsors in the state and the National Executive Director, with the approval of the National Board of Directors. State Convention Planning Committee Each convention state shall have a State Convention Planning Committee for the purpose of planning and coordinating the annual conference. The members of the committee shall include: the State Sponsor, the State Sponsor Elect, a State Council member and the club sponsor who has been named Chairperson of each Academic Competitions.
