What is Convention?

Convention is the Society’s largest annual event—and this year it will be the BEST! 

Alpha Delts from all of our chapters and affiliates will reunite (virtually!) for days of socializing, bonding, and networking.

Convention includes workshops, educational speakers, and plenty of space for discussion. It gives siblings from all generations the opportunity to introduce and advocate for initiatives that will change our organization for the better. 

A highlight of the weekend will be the (virtual) Saturday Night Banquet, featuring an awards ceremony during which we announce the recipients of the Emerald and Pearl Award, the Society Order of the Sword and Spear, the Rising Star Award, and the Star and Crescent Award. The banquet also honors the winners of prizes from the Samuel Eells Literary and Educational Foundation Literary Competition.

Convention Safety Resources

As someone speaking in front of the whole convention or someone leading an open space, think critically about whether the content you are presenting could containing upsetting information or details and if so, preface the content with a content warning. If at any point during business or open space, you feel uncomfortable or need a mental break, please feel free to look on your phone or your computer, or step out of the room for any length of time.  No one is going to assume or judge anyone for leaving, there are any number of reasons you could be doing so.  This also applies if you are a delegate, just inform your alternate delegate that you are leaving.
