Tau Epsilon Phi is happy to announce details regarding Grand Chapter & Convention 2020. This years event is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 23, 2020. Due to the ongoing challenges faced by the COVID-19 pandemic, this years Grand Chapter & Convention will be an entirely virtual event(s). There will be no cost for our undergraduates or alumni to attend. However, only recognized delegates from our undergraduate chapters and alumni associations in good standing will be permitted to vote on matters brought before the Convention. These delegates will need to be approved by the credentials committee. All members wishing to attend, must register in advance. All undergraduates and alumni are encouraged to attend whether you will be a delegate or not.
Please note there will now be an optional alumni happy hour on Thursday evening, October 22, 2020 from 7 – 9pm EDT. This will be a great time to socialize and meet other alumni from around the country.
