Hundreds of Phis will gather at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah, Georgia on Sunday, June 19 through Wednesday, June 22, 2016 for Phi Delta Theta Fraternity’s 81st Biennial General Convention.
The Convention offers a unique opportunity for Phis of all ages from many parts of the world to meet in the true spirit of the Bond. Since 1880, the General Convention has held all supreme and legislative powers of the Fraternity. The Convention has three main responsibilities and powers including:
- Electing the General Council
- Consideration of judicial matters
- Enacting laws for the regulation of the Fraternity, since only the General Convention may amend the Ritual, Constitution, and General Statutes of the Fraternity.
The 2016 Phi Delt Convention, located on the riverfront in the heart of Savannah’s historic district, will offer plenty of entertainment and shopping venues plus events that will allow brothers to reconnect with old acquaintances while connecting for the first time with other “Brothers in the Bond.”
In addition the undergraduates and alumni volunteers, the Washington, DC Alumni Club is eligible to send one voting delegate. If you are interested in representing the club at convention this summer, please send an email to email@example.com. It is worth noting that travel expenses and hotel accommodations are the responsibility of the delegate.
