Save the Date: 75th National Convention
Posted by Catherine Berry WGS on September 17, 2022

Dear Brothers, 

I'm thrilled to announce that the 75th National Convention of Alpha Rho Chi will be held in person in Nashville, Tennessee.

Save the date for Thursday, February 23 - Sunday, February 26, 2023.

Registration will open on Tuesday, November 1, 2022. Additional details, including lodging, programming, tours, awards, scholarships, nominations, and motions submission instructions will also be announced at when registration opens.

We appreciate your patience as Grand Council finalizes details for this event, but rest assured that you can expect the following highly requested features:

  • Business sessions will be entirely free to members (including delegates).
  • Total pricing for all other aspects of Convention will not exceed $200 per person.
  • Lodging, Welcome Reception, Business Sessions, Programming, and Banquet will all be located in the heart of Nashville.
  • The Convention schedule will allow numerous opportunities for attendees to make new connections, informally gather, and explore the city. 
  • The motions submitted in advance of the 74th National Convention will automatically carry over to the 75th National Convention (as unfinished business). 

Finally, we invite the membership to review the summarized results of our May 2022 Convention Interest Surveys here

We look forward to welcoming you to the Athens of the South!

Feedback Requested: The Future of Convention
Posted by Catherine Berry on May 10, 2022

The Grand Council has begun planning efforts for the 2023 National Convention, and we are seeking your feedback. 

Since our 2022 Convention was moved online due to low registration, the Grand Council felt it critical to hear from the membership before moving forward with plans for 2023. We want to be sure that our annual meeting not only meets our official business needs, but is also beneficial to our members. 

Please share your thoughts by completing just one of our two opinion surveys, below:

Yes, I'm Interested or No, I'm Not Interested

Each survey takes 1-3 minutes to complete, can be submitted anonymously (if desired), and include both multiple choice and open response questions. Survey results will be used to guide future Convention planning decisions. 

This survey is being distributed widely, however we know it may not reach our entire membership. If you know of someone who did not receive this email, please share it. 

Thank you for your continued support as we work to thrive as a Fraternity.
