The Global NYI Convention is a special time of inspiration, fellowship, connection, celebration, and decision-making to shape NYI’s vision for years to come. Over 1,600 delegates are elected in district NYI conventions around the world, and our commitment is to facilitate their participation at this global gathering.

In order to accommodate the various realities of our constituency around the globe, NYI’s Convention will be structured as a hybrid model:

  • Part 1: 2-3 June 2023, online
  • Part 2: 9-12 June 2023, online and in-person (Indianapolis, Indiana, USA)


Our hope is that this structure will allow the greatest number of people to take part in the fellowship and legislative proceedings of the Global NYI Convention. All delegates will be fully able to participate, whether they are participating virtually or in person. The overview of the tentative schedule for the Global NYI Convention is as follows:
