Sartin, Regional Assistant Vice President, the Regional Convention Team, and Central Ohio Area by presenting you with the official call for the 91st Annual Midwestern Regional Convention.
The 91st Annual Midwestern Regional Convention will take place from March 21 – 26, 2023 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown in Columbus, Ohio
This is the final year of the Stovall Administration, and each year has been building to this moment. We will end our journey where we started with our convention theme: The Essence of Brotherhood: Engagement, Excellence, Evolution.
We have a series of chapters working to make this convention great. You will be hosted by Alpha Rho Lambda, Kappa, Omicron Rho, Phi, Rho Upsilon, and Xi Chi chapters. These brothers have been working for the past two years to make this convention a memorable experience and they have ensured us that the Brotherhood Experience will be at its highest!!
We are continuing the convention model introduced last year with the virtual component to make sure that all brothers can experience a part of this convention. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings will be dedicated to virtual workshops. The remainder of the convention will be focused on official business as we dedicate time to enjoy one another and fellowship in the true spirit of Alpha.
