181st Beta Theta Pi General Convention

This summer, Betas, Sweethearts and guests from across the globe will converge in the American Southwest to celebrate 181 years of brotherhood in Beta Theta Pi!

Convention attendees will enjoy breathtaking views of the Sonoran Desert from a AAA Four Diamond resort and an itinerary packed with opportunities to celebrate the achievements of brothers young and old, participate in educational sessions, rekindle old friendships and discover new ones. Among those VIPs in attendance will be Oxford Cup honoree and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Rivers Rutherford, Mississippi ’89, as well as Shepardson Award recipient and former Foundation Board Director Bert Bates, Missouri ’49.

Whether you attend the entire Convention, come for the day or join us for one of the outstanding banquets, mark the dates and reserve your spot by July 1.

On April 1, Beta Theta Pi's Board of Trustees announced that, in light of developments related to COVID-19, the 181st General Convention has been canceled.

The full announcement can be viewed here. Additional questions should be directed to Convention Coordinators Claire Dixon and John Underhill.
