Description

Theta Delta Chi returns to Richmond

For the third time, Richmond, VA plays host to Theta Delta Chi’s Annual Convention. The 171st Convention will take place this August 9-11th. Richmond is home to the newly re-chartered Fine Southern Charge of Rho Triton at Virginia Commonwealth University, which returned to the active ranks on March 17th, 2018. You can be sure the Rho Triton alumni will be out in full force. Come celebrate with them!


The Hotel

The Hilton Richmond Downtown will be our Convention headquarters. Book your rooms directly with the hotel; rooms start as low as $159 a night. (https://book.passkey.com/go/ThetaDeltaChiAnnualConvention).

Our two General Business Sessions on Thursday and Saturday, as well as our President’s of the Grand Lodge Reception and Grand Banquet Saturday night, will be held at this venue.


Welcome Reception

All guests are welcome to join us Thursday night at Champion Brewing Company (401 E. Grace Street, walking distance from the Hilton) for a welcome reception. Socialize with all attendees over free snacks and a cash bar!


River Rafting/Trolley Tours

There is plenty of scheduled fun, but also the opportunity to check out the best that Richmond has to offer. You can purchase tickets to join the official undergraduate delegates on the James River Friday morning for their white-water rafting Minerva Session. If rafting doesn’t sound like fun, hop on our private air conditioned historical trolley tour instead. A Full Registration will get you a ticket to either. Both the trolley tour and white water rafting include lunch and a customized Theta Delta Chi towel. There will be plenty of time to explore Richmond’s rich history, excellent breweries, and vibrant art scene.


Fun For The Whole Family

This Convention has your family in mind! For the first time in recent memory the Grand Banquet is offering a Children’s Ticket option, which includes a chicken fingers and fries entrée for our guests 12 and under. You will get a ticket to the Children’s Museum of Richmond with the purchase of a children’s banquet ticket.

Our Rafting event is for ages 10 and older, but the air conditioned historical trolley tour is open to all ages. If you are interested in going on the trolley tour with a child under the age of 12, you can purchase a Full Child’s Registration at a discount.

While the Saturday business session is in full swing, spouses, partners, significant others, non-delegates and family are welcome to join us for a private tour and catered lunch in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Children activities are available for families who do not want to go on the tour. Space for the museum tour is limited, so book now!


The Omega Service

On Friday evening, Brothers and guests are invited to join us at the Omega Service. Begun in 1904, it is an opportunity to reflect on our 171-year-old brotherhood as we commemorate those who have passed during the year into the halls of the Omega Charge. Rho Triton Brother Rob Wootton (‘95) will lead the non-denominational memorial service which will include the reading of the Omega Roll by the 141st Grand Lodge. The service will be held at St. James’s Episcopal Church at 1205 W. Franklin St. Richmond, VA 23220.

Join Us

This 171st Convention is a great opportunity to see new friends and old as we conduct the business of the fraternity and renew in union our social joys. Theta Delta Chi will celebrate the return of the Rho Triton Charge, vote for the new officers of the 142nd Grand Lodge, and conduct Annual Meetings of the Founders’ Corporation, Educational Foundation, and Grand Lodge.
