SEA/SEIU Local 1984 First Vice President Ken Roos, who chairs the Convention Arrangements Committee, encouraged all delegates to attend (you can read more about delegates below).
“We recognize that SEA/SEIU Local 1984 members cover every corner of the state, which is why we bring our annual meeting to the SEAcoast,” Roos said. “There’s no more fitting location to close out our 75th year than at the glorious Wentworth by the SEA!”

About the location
The Wentworth by the Sea is located at 588 Wentworth Road in New Castle. Because this is a one-day convention, SEA/SEIU Local 1984 will not cover the cost of accommodations at the hotel. Delegates to the convention are advised that the Wentworth requires a two-night stay for weekends, so if you choose to stay in the area you may want to seek alternate accommodations.
Delegates and registration information
Delegates to the convention include duly elected chapter presidents and councilors, or designated duly elected alternate councilors. Informational packets will be sent to all delegates as soon as possible.
