First Thursdays with the Phis – January 5

First Thursdays with the Phis is an alumni engagement initiative that works to gather Phis on the first Thursday evening of each month in consistent locations, starting at the same time (6 p.m.), in an ever-growing list of cities across North America.

Whether you are new to your city, a long-time resident, seeking to build your network, or enjoy meeting other local Phis, Phi Delta Theta wants you to have a place in your city where you can enjoy brotherhood on the first Thursday evening of the month. The Phi Delt network is powerful, and we know that those who attend these informal gatherings will find great value in broadening their connections.

McKenzie Presidents Leadership Conference

The success of Phi Delta Theta is strong leadership—leadership based upon our three Cardinal Principles. Therefore, the Fraternity and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation created the McKenzie Family Presidents Leadership Conference (PLC) to develop leadership skills and train each chapter’s newly elected president. The Fraternity held the inaugural PLC in 2000 and, it remains a staple in the Fraternity’s educational programming efforts.

Over three days, PLC participants learn the fundamentals of being a chapter leader, emphasizing leadership, ethics, managing chapter operations and external relations, risk management, and character. In addition, the conference features presentations by the best speakers in the Greek world and breakout team meetings facilitated by volunteer alumni and General Headquarters staff members.

84th Biennial Convention

The Biennial Convention offers a unique opportunity for Phis of all ages from many parts of the world to meet in the true spirit of the Bond. Since 1880, the General Convention has held all supreme and legislative powers of the Fraternity. The Convention has three main responsibilities and powers.  They include:

  1. Electing the General Council
  2. Consideration of judicial matters
  3. Enacting laws for the regulation of the Fraternity, since only the General Convention may amend the Ritual, Constitution, and General Statutes of the Fraternity.

The 2023 Convention is located in the heart of Scottsdale and will offer plenty of entertainment and events that will allow brothers to reconnect with old acquaintances while connecting for the first time with other brothers in the bond. Registration will take place in myPhiDelt and will be open March 1.
