Registration for the District Conference has begun, so it's time to start planning. This year it will be held in Tampa, Florida, the weekend of March 19-20. The Florida Gamma and Tampa Bay Alumni Chapters are excited to serve a co-hosts to this year's Conference.

The Conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Tampa USF (3705 Spectrum Blvd, Tampa, FL 33612). On Sunday, we will have a cookout at Lettuce Lake Park (6920 E Fletcher Ave, Tampa, FL 33637).

The District Conference runs from noon on Saturday until noon on Sunday. Student members are requested to stay throughout the entire portion of the Conference.

Because a good portion of the Conference is directed towards student members, alumni may join us later. Alumni members are invited to join us on Saturday, from 3:00-8:00PM.

D5 North Chapters

Attention: Georgia Alpha, South Carolina Alpha, South Carolina Beta, and Atlanta Alumni Chapters. District 6 will be holding their Conference April 1-2 in Nashville, TN.

You can also choose to attend the D6 Conference by filling out the Google Form.
