Grand Conclave

Grand Conclave

Join us for the 2018 Grand Conclave in Phoenix, Arizona!

JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa

This supreme governing body of Sigma Tau Gamma brings together generations of members to determine the direction of the Fraternity in the coming years. The gathering was held sporadically until 1946 when a reliable biennial schedule was established. The location of Grand Conclave changes each year allowing members to not only enjoy the camaraderie of one another, but also experience the excitement and sites of a new city.

At Grand Conclave, guests will enjoy fraternal brotherhood through speakers, workshops, banquets, ritual and recognition ceremonies. The brotherhood also elects the Fraternity President and Board of Directors, considers legislation, amendments to the Constitution and Laws and learns about Fraternity programs.
