Kappa Delta’s Biennial National Convention

Kappa Delta’s 64th Biennial National Convention will take place virtually on Saturday, June 26. All members are invited to attend.

The first business meeting will start at 10 a.m. CDT. We anticipate wrapping up Convention at 5 p.m. (Don’t worry, there will be breaks along the way!) If more time is needed in business meetings, the presentation of awards will extend into Saturday evening or continue on Sunday, June 27.

Register now! Both delegates and non-delegates can register using this link. The fee is $25 per person, which will help cover some of the production costs. Registration closes June 18, 2021.

Attire. Delegates should be in pin attire and will be on camera if they request to address the Convention body. Other attendees may wear what they wish. 

Delegates. The convention delegates, one from each collegiate and alumnae chapter and National Leadership Team members, will be provided a unique Zoom meeting link and a link to the voting platform to participate in the business meetings with voice and vote. You’ll need these links and personal voting credentials we’ll email to each delegate on Monday, June 21. Note: We recommend logging into Zoom 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the first business meeting to make sure your technology works.

Delegates will watch the other Convention sessions, including the Foundation event, White Rose Celebration and Awards Presentation via livestream on the convention event website, which will launch Monday, June 21. You’ll need to log into the website with the email address you used to register and the link and password provided via email on Monday, June 21.

National Council Elections. During National Convention, the sorority’s voting delegates will elect the National Council members who will lead the organization during the 2021-2023 biennium. Find out more about National Council elections and the slate of candidates for National Council on the National Elections page. If you have questions, email Nominating Committee Chair Leah Cardona Schnoor.

National Bylaws. Delegates to the National Convention will vote on proposed amendments to the National Bylaws, which were last updated in 2019. The 2019 National Bylaws and 2021 Proposed Amendments to the National Bylaws are available in the Resource Library under the topic, “National Bylaws.” Delegates should review the proposed amendments to the National Bylaws in preparation to fulfill their voting responsibilities.
