We are SO excited to officially announce that Fall Convention is transitioning to Frat/Sis Convention! This brand new convention is already filled with innovative programs and exciting additions. Some highlights include the launching of a region-wide big/little initiative, which will build bonds among members from different chapters across the region and elevate opportunities for mentorship, special guests and speakers throughout the weekend, including the 71st International N'siah (President) of the B'nai B'rith Girls, Lauren Keats, and the revival of BBYO's semi-formal dance, Beau/Sweetheart, featuring a professional DJ, photobooth, and much, much more!

?Early bird registration is now OPEN through September 20. The early bird cost of convention is $295 and teens who register during early bird will get to request a roommate. After September 20, the cost will increase to $315 until registration closes on October 1. Please do not wait until the last minute to register! It makes it much harder to plan when we don't have an accurate idea of who is coming to convention. Additionally, it makes it more difficult for us to troubleshoot problems should you have trouble registering online. It is in everyone's best interest to register during early bird!
?Scholarship: We never want cost to be a reason that someone cannot attend a convention and we do offer need-based scholarships for our convention weekends. Scholarship applications are due by September 18 at 5 PM MST. Please submit your application on time to ensure enough time to allocate funds. We cannot guarantee consideration or funding for applications received after the September 18 deadline. Applications can be found at https://secure.jotformpro.com/form/52307853946968

Until that date, full refunds will be granted for cancelations requested in writing (email is acceptable), for any reason. After the registration deadline, partial refunds may be available based on convention expenses already paid (hotel, transportation, etc.). Within ten days of convention, we've already confirmed final counts with our vendors and no refunds will be given. "No shows" will not receive a refund.
