International Convention

Registration is open for our 2019 International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Join us in the Mile High City from August 1 – 4, 2019! 

We will be Moving Mountains in Denver during the 2019 International Convention from August 1-4, 2019. The convention will be held at the Hilton Denver City Center.  Registration is in myZBT. Alumni, click here to book hotel rooms. Undergraduates will have rooms booked for them through the Fraternity.

International Convention is the premier education and leadership program in Zeta Beta Tau. Held annually, it is a time for brothers from around the world to come together to share in the truest sense of brotherhood while learning skills that will benefit them far beyond their college years. Undergraduates and volunteer faculty gather in our host city for this memorable and highly regarded event that is made possible by the generous support of the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation. While the Fraternity provides other forms of face-to-face education for brothers, this is one of our only events which brings undergraduate and alumni brothers alike together for meaningful interactions. This program allows undergraduates and alumni to play a key role in the development and future of the International Fraternity. Through educational programs, operational  training and organizational management, brothers can gain a deeper understanding of the Fraternity and gain and exchange best practices while learning valuable skills regardless of their geographical location. It serves as the single largest gathering of brothers and provides a wide lens from which to see the Fraternity. At International Convention, the Fraternity recognizes individuals (undergraduate, alumni and friends of ZBT) for achievements in the interfraternal world and greater community. Award nominations can be submitted here.

Undergraduate Information
Each chapter is required to send 2 brothers. We welcome all brothers to attend, however programming this year will be especially beneficial for Chapter Presidents, Recruitment Directors, and BDDs. Your hotel and registration for your two delegates are covered by program fees and brothers need to pay their own transportation. We love when chapters bring more brothers to Convention! The extra brothers will need to pay the registration fee and hotel charges. The Fraternity will book hotel rooms for all undergraduates. Please review the Undergraduate Attendance Policy here.

Recruitment University
Times are changing in the college environment, and our chapter leaders need to know how to market their experience and answer key questions about the relevance and value of being in a fraternity overall. Recruitment University offers chapter and colony leaders the opportunity to explore the ZBT message, connect it to their local “pitch” with potential new brothers, discuss marketing strategies, review best practices for successful recruitment, and so much more. In attendance will be chapters who’ve had successful recruitment periods, chapters who’ve struggled for various reasons and are looking to improve, colonies still crafting their experience, and others. Space is limited and filled on a first come first served basis, so reserve yours today!

Recruitment University is held from July 31 – August 1, 2019 (immediately preceding International Convention) in Denver, Colorado at our host hotel. Priority attendance should be focused on Recruitment Director, Chapter President, Communication Director or member of Recruitment Committee. The cost is a  $50 deposit per attendee, covering overnight hotel cost plus dinner, snack and breakfast. The $50 deposit will be held from registration until completion of the program and will be reimbursed within two weeks after Convention.

Educational programming at the 2019 International Convention is made possible by a generous grant from the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation. Help support the Foundation today.
