Sisters,

It is that time of year again to attend Convention for 2018 on August 3rd-5th! Our 20th Anniversary!!! There will be awesome speakers, workshops, and many more that you can take back with you as an undergrad and alum! This can benefit you while in college and for your careers.

This year's convention will be where our Sorority was first founded, Athens, Georgia! Our meetings will be located on campus at the University of Georgia, which is walking distance from downtown, the popular UGA Arch, shops, nightlife, and many more!  You will get to view and experience the fun atmosphere of Athens. In addition, we will be having another year of the Stroll Competition, which was a huge success last year!

Sisters will also receive gifts, have meals included, and enjoy our yearly banquet! This year's banquet will be different where regional formals will be combined. This means banquet will be more fun and will include dancing! :) You can also bring a date! Meals will include Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, and the Banquet Dinner. Alums, you will have a sisterhood brunch!
