Five Reasons to Get Pumped for the 171st Annual Convention

Five Reasons to Get Pumped for the 171st Annual Convention….

Mark Kendall Bingham Memorial 5k – The first annual Mark K. Bingham Memorial 5k will take place on Friday morning at this year’s Convention so don’t forget to pack your running shoes! The host committee has put together a great course for runners to run/walk. The memorial 5k was established in honor of Mark. K. Bingham ΔΔ ’93, who lost his life on September 11, 2001 while aboard United Airlines flight 93.

Zeta Delta Centennial Celebration – On Friday evening we will be celebrating 100 years of Chi Psi at the University of Illinois! The host committee has some special surprises in store for the Zeta Delta Centennial Celebration. Not to mention that the celebration will take place at Colonnades Club of The University of Illinois Memorial Stadium!

Spencer Institute Sessions – The CO Staff is really excited about this year’s Spencer Institute. This year our undergraduates will have the pleasure of hearing Chuck Zamora founder of Zamora Group International and author of Chuck Zamora’s Little Black Book of Quotes. We had the pleasure of hearing Chuck speak at the 2012 Mid-Year Leadership Retreat, and it was great!

Business Session – Chi Psi has some exciting things going on including the development of a new national benchmarking program and a new membership and extension plan. You don’t want to miss out on the business session!

Banquet – The closing banquet of the 171 Convention will be held Saturday, August 4, 2012 at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. Banquet is always one of my favorite events at Convention. It is a time for alumni, undergraduates, and guests to celebrate 171 years of elevated, refined friendships and honor alumni and undergraduates that continue to pursue excellence. Don’t forget to bring your tux! Attendees may participate in the Convention’s arranged tuxedo rental program through Men’s Warehouse to get a tuxedo for $56.99. Shoes are not included but can also be rented for $20. Tuxedos rented within the Fraternity’s group will be delivered to Convention for pickup on Thursday, August 2 and picked up on Sunday, August 5.
