Description

Welcome to Houston!

Greetings to all Brothers, Hearts, and Invited Guests,

The 2017 Spring Super Regional Conference will be held Thursday, March 30-April 2, 2017 in Houston, Texas. For the first time in Iota history the Southern and Far West Regions will team up to effect positive change in the Fraternity through Education, Service, and Brotherhood. The Conference planning committee is working on a dynamic and fun weekend for all involved. Brothers, Hearts, and guests alike will find an array of events to enjoy while in the Bayou City. The theme of this year’s conference is L-E-A-D (Leaders Educate, Act, and Demonstrate). It is our goal to develop Leaders that will Educate others, Act accordingly, and Demonstrate what you’ve learned. All members should note that all Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 new members are required to attend this conference. Please be advised that in addition to new members each chapter must have two registered delegates to represent their chapter during the business meetings. We encourage all brothers to attend the meetings in addition to delegates and new members.
