Convention History


Since 1894, members from across North America have gathered to rejoice in the bonds of brotherhood, discuss legislation, attend leadership/educational programming, and connect with their fellow brothers. The 2018 International Convention will see Delta Chi return to the Denver, Colorado area, marking the 61st time we have met to celebrate our brotherhood and advance Delta Chi!
