They will be seeing their new-found friends, which they have met at the regional forums, and delegate’s meetings, and all the knowledge and experience they have received during this two-year term is now going to be tested as their area’s chosen delegate. There is excitement and apprehension, mixed with a little fear of facing their new duties.
