Overview

Since 1909 Triangle brothers have come together at regular intervals for Triangle Fraternity’s National Convention.  Brothers send at least two undergraduate and one alumni delegate to Convention in order to discuss the future of Triangle Fraternity, review the organization’s legislation, recognize distinguished undergrads, alumni, and volunteers, distribute national awards, and swear in Triangle’s National Council.  National Convention also offers many educational sessions based on the principles of leadership, networking, etiquette, and professional development.

Presenter Information

  • Conference presenters will receive travel accommodations, one night’s stay, and a  honorarium.
  • Presenters are responsible for making their own handouts. We are not able to do any on-site copying for presenters.
  • We will notify selected presenters of their assignments in April 2017. This will give you time in which to prepare your handouts and final AV requests.

Audio Visual Requests

Audio Visual equipment is sometimes a necessity to enhance program presentations, but these costs can add up quickly and are expensive rentals. Please consider carefully what AV you will actually use for your session and consider the impact of utilizing AV before requesting it. Thank you for helping us keep Convention registration costs at a reasonable rate by helping us control AV costs.

  • We have a very limited number of LCD projectors available to our presenters that will be available on a first come/first serve basis
  • If you have the ability, please consider traveling with your own LCD
  • If you would like items like adapters, special cables, portable stereos, etc. you will need to bring your own

Triangle appreciates and values presenter time, talents, and expertise. Please give consideration to presenting proposals; you’ll have a great time in the process.
