Convention serves as the business meeting of Alpha Kappa Psi where chapter congress convenes to influence positive change within the organization. Convention also serves to educate both student and alumni members on fraternity knowledge, business knowledge, and professional development through the two-day College of Leadership event.

Additional Information

Who can attend Convention?

Anyone interested in experiencing AKPsi brotherhood at its finest may attend. Convention isn’t just for students or chapter officers; alumni members are encouraged to attend. All members of AKPsi are welcome, along with their guests.

How can my student chapter pay for Convention?

Each semester your chapter has been depositing money into a Convention Savings Plan that will total $800 USD by February 2019. These funds can be used to help offset the cost of registration fees. Additional ideas for fundraising can be found in the Fundraising Kit (available in October.) Student chapters can increase this amount to have more available at the time of registration

How does my student chapter gain access to the money in our Convention Savings Plan?

Upon registration, the money set aside in the Convention Savings Plan will automatically be applied to your registration fee total.

Can my student chapter use the money in our Convention Savings Plan at the Principled Business Leadership Institute to pay for the discounted registration rate?

Yes. Your CSP money may be used at PBLI to pay for the discounted registration rate with the approval of the chapter president or other member of the chapter executive board.

As a student registrant, do I need to sign up for the add-on events at the same time I register for the rest of the Convention?

No. You may add these events onto your registration at a later date. Keep in mind that these events have limited space. By registering early, you ensure your spot for the event.

What do the delegate and alternate delegate do at Convention?

These individuals participate in committee meetings and cast your chapter’s vote at the Chapter Congress Meeting. Both of these individuals should register for Chapter Congress and College of Leadership (Package A).

What if I'm not the student chapter delegate or alternate delegate, what should I register for?

Then you have more choices about what events you attend for the Convention. Pick which Package best fits your schedule. Note that in order to register for an off-site event, students must first register for one of the three available packages.

As an alumni registrant, do I need to sign up for all the events at one time or can I add an event at a later date?

You may add events onto your registration at a later date. Keep in mind that some events have limited space. By registering early, you ensure your spot for the event.

I am currently a collegiate member, but at the time of the Convention will have graduated. How should I register?

If you want to attend any of the alumni-only events, then you will need to register using the Alumni and Guest registration form.
