Brothers from across the country will gather at this biennial event to observe Ritual Exemplification, and conduct the business of the Fraternity, including the election and induction of Grand Council officers and proposed changes to the governing documents.

One of the most important tasks at any General Convention is voting for Grand Council members and acting on legislation which affects the day-to-day operations of the Fraternity.
Voting strength is based on the size of a chapter in the case of local undergraduate chapters, and the number of paying sustaining dues members for eligible alumni clubs. Fourth, fifth, and sixth degree members also have one vote each. It is important that all chapters attend Convention in order to have input from all those eligible to vote.
