You’ll refine personal skills, deepen your understanding of real-world dilemmas, improve your ability to help others, and share ideas with Pikes from around the country. We recommend at least three members attend from each chapter.

Convention is an amazing experience for any and every Pike. Gain the knowledge to lead, inspire others, effectively navigate peer-to-peer interactions, and help steer the course for the future of the Fraternity.
