What to Expect
The goal of Convention is to impart an unwavering enthusiasm, pride, and affinity for the Alpha Sigma Tau experience into the hearts and minds of all who participate.
Impactful leadership decisions
During the General Sessions, delegates make important decisions about the future of our Sorority, including the selection of Sorority leadership for the next two years.
Who are delegates?
Delegates are comprised of collegiate chapter leaders, alumnae association/chapter representatives, Chapter Advisory Board members, volunteer personnel, standing committee chairs, Past National Presidents, and National Officers.
What does a delegate do?
Delegates debate and vote on important Sorority business like leadership elections for National Council and Governing Documents revisions during the General Sessions.
Who should my collegiate chapter select as delegates?
Each collegiate chapter is expected to send one Delegate and one Alternate Delegate. Typically, Chapter Presidents serve as the delegate and another Executive Committee officer serves as an alternate delegate. However, we realize that this isn’t always possible, and encourage each chapter to select the best members to represent them at Convention.
Who should my Chapter Advisory Board select as a delegate?
Each collegiate Chapter Advisory Board is also expected to send one CAB Delegate. Typically, this is the Chapter Advisor.
Who should my alumnae chapter/association select as a delegate?
Alumnae chapters/associations are encouraged to send a delegate and alternate delegate. Chapters/associations must be in good standing to vote during general sessions.
Fostering Meaningful Connections
Convention is a unique opportunity to enjoy the company of our Sisters and reflect on the lifelong friendships and support Sisterhood brings. The 42nd National Convention is no exception, with lots of chances to connect and bond with your Sisters.
Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Game
Kick off Convention on Thursday night by watching the Pittsburgh Pirates play the Arizona Diamondbacks at PNC Park with your Sisters. Tickets and concessions are included with the Full Convention Registration, and a Ticket Only package is also available.
Get out of the hotel! Participants will have the opportunity to explore parts of Pittsburgh they want to see and connect with members who share common interests in more relaxed, intimate settings. Participants will be able to select from pre-planned excursions or plan their own.
Yellow Rose Banquet
A longstanding Alpha Sigma Tau tradition, the Yellow Rose Banquet caps off the last full day of Convention in style. Dress up, enjoy dinner with your Sisters, celebrate individual and chapter accomplishments, and participate in the Candlelighting Service.
Honoring Each Other
National Convention is a time to recognize individual and chapter achievements, share in the pride we have for each other’s accomplishments and remember those who have entered the Eternal Chapter.
Individual and chapter awards are presented throughout Convention during the Women’s Leadership Luncheon and Yellow Rose Banquet.
Honor those Sisters who joined the Eternal Chapter and live on in our hearts. This moving service offers the chance to not only mourn Sisters we lost, but also celebrate their lives and contributions to their Sisters in Alpha Sigma Tau.
