It’s that time of year again: time for the Florida Young Democrats Annual Convention! This year, we are excited to be visiting our Orange County chapter as we head to Orlando for a full weekend of trainings, networking, and our always-popular Awards Luncheon. The convention will take place May 9-11 at the Orlando Hilton.
Registration is currently open, and gets you in to all of the trainings, lunch and our straw poll!
Registration is currently only $55, but prices will go up soon! So register today.
Our Host Hotel
This year our host hotel is the Orlando Hilton. We were able to negotiate a block of rooms at a reduced rate of $109 a plus night plus tax with a reduced resort fee, but only for a limited time and while supplies last!
Not only will you be on site for all of the excited events of the convention, you’ll be able to spend your down time floating down the lazy river at the pool, enjoying the spa or enjoying one of the many on-site restaurants and bars.
Call 1-800-Hiltons and say you’re with FYD, or book online with the group code FYD today!
If you are able to join us at convention or not, please consider becoming a sponsor of this year’s event. Ad space for your campaign or organization in our program book starts at $100, and Sponsorship Levels begin at only $125!
We also are selling individual and blocks of seats for the Luncheon and Straw Poll to Young at Heart Democrats!

New This Year: Democratic Straw Poll
For the first time this year, the Florida Young Democrats are conducting a statewide straw-poll on all contested Democratic primaries and state ballot initiatives. We are currently scheduled to vote on the Governor and Attorney General races as well as Amendments 1 and 2.
Chapters will have the opportunity to cast votes for their favorites, but don’t worry, if you aren’t a member of a chapter you can still participate! Registering for the straw poll makes it so you too can have a voice.
This straw poll will be the first measure of the mood of the 2014 primary electorate and a good indicator of where young voters in this state are leaning.
A Sneak Peak at our Schedule
