I met the sample for the word below, convention, i am wondered if it can use the collective noun, convention, directly, because my dictionary is not so good enough to accord with the native usage.
The convention voted for the new constitution.
Or, it should say The members who attended the convention voted for the new constitution.
Thanks and regards

Happy new year!
