Event Details

Spring Cultural Convention gives the NC, SC and GA chapters an opportunity to compete against each other in a series of creative, academic and athletic events over the course of the weekend in addition to honoring our outgoing council presidents, our seniors and electing the 30th North Carolina Council Board and the 57th Dixie Council Board. Chapters spend time preparing for the events prior to the convention. This is the perfect setting for NC and Dixie Council to show their “Chapter Pride.” On Sunday, April 5th, the 30th NC Council AZA and BBG boards & the 57th Dixie Council Board will be elected.  

Cost: $150.00
