Grand Conclave

Grand Conclave

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 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.

The following is a list of past Grand Conclave Locations. Names in parenthesis were conventions named after a member of someone who contributed significantly to the fraternity.

House of Delegates: The House of Delegates is the supreme legislative body of Sigma Tau Gamma. The House of Delegates is composed of both undergraduate leaders and alumni. Each active chapter and associate chapter is represented, Past National Presidents, Society of Seventeen recipients, and the Fraternity Board of Directors are all a part of the House of Delegates. For alumni associations to be eligible for a vote at Grand Conclave, the alumni association must be registered for the current and prior fiscal years unless it is a newly formed association.

The 49th House of Delegates and Centennial Celebration will take place during Grand Conclave Kansas City, June 25 – 28, 2020 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown in Kansas City, MO.
