INDIANAPOLIS, IN – After nearly a month of continuous consultation with trusted partners, the local hospitality industry, and monitoring updates of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Fraternity Board of Directors has decided to postpone Grand Conclave Kansas City until summer 2022.
The decision to fully postpone Grand Conclave Kansas City comes with a commitment to return to Kansas City for the 2022 program and considers what is best for Sigma Tau Gamma, its’ members, and friends. Postponing until 2022 puts our member’s health and safety as top priority. This also presents an opportunity to build on the momentum of the organization’s Centennial year and engage alumni across the country throughout the upcoming academic year. We will continue to find new and creative ways to celebrate our history and kick off the next chapter of the Sig Tau story.
“Now more than ever, educational and brotherhood opportunities are essential for our membership. The Board of Directors has full trust in the Headquarters Staff to build programming that will have a positive effect on a local, regional, and national scale,” said 40th National President Jim Johnston, Carnegie Mellon.
While we cannot meet in Kansas City this June, Headquarters Staff is diligently working to virtually celebrate 100 years of brotherhood not just on June 28, 2020, but throughout the entire academic year.
At our core, Sigma Tau Gamma would not be where it is today without the support of over 73,000 members in nearly 100 years. While this decision was not easy, it is one that was made for the health and safety of brothers and the organization. As leaders of Sigma Tau Gamma, we will continue to do our best by each member in every decision made.
