105th National Convention

July 18 - July 21

2019 CONVENTION
PHILADELPHIA / CHERRY HILL, NJ
JULY 18-21, 2019
We are pleased to announce that we will be at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia-Cherry Hill for the 105th National Convention. The hotel is a short 10 miles over the bridge from Center City Philadelphia in Cherry Hill, NJ. This will allow for a larger than usual attendance given the proximity to many of our Chapters and alumni. We are expecting attendance to top out at 250-300 men. This Convention will serve as the official kick-off of the Quasquicentennial celebration of the Founding of the Fraternity (125 years of Brotherhood!) with 16 Past National Presidents committing to attend! Stay connected by updating your contact information and watching our web site for details.
