During last week’s 2014 YAL National Convention, attendees and staff used the hashtag #YALcon14 to tweet the event as it unfolded.

1. #SelfieswithEd

I honestly do not understand why this is a thing. But, for some reason, people really seem to to enjoy taking selfies with YAL Director of Operations Ed King. I for one avoid pictures with The King, as his rugged handsomeness and natural charm make me look repulsive by comparison. However, the market has spoken — and the people want selfies with Ed. So, without further ado, here are the best #SelfieswithEd from this year’s National Convention.
