The Gamma Beta Phi Society

2022 National Convention

The Gamma Beta Phi Society is scheduled to hold the bi-annual national convention March 18-19, 2022, hosted by Adelphi University on Long Island, NY. Representatives from chapters from all across the country will come together for a weekend of social networking, community service, friendly competition, leadership development workshops, and a red carpet Gala! In addition, the newly elected members of our National Executive Committee will be announced, along with our 2021-2022 Regional Senators.

HEALTH & SAFETY 

Keeping the health, safety and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff, and guests as our top priority, the National Executive Committee has endorsed an in-person convention experience in alignment with current local and federal COVID-19 precautions.  

The Gamma Beta Phi Society continues to monitor the developments regarding COVID-19 and the impact those may have on our national convention. Details regarding all health and safety precautions and attendee expectations are being regularly reviewed and will be communicated to all attendees prior to registration launching in late 2021. 

SCHEDULE 

We’re planning an engaging mix of opportunities for our members to gather and conduct the business of the Society, plenty of networking opportunities, support the Society’s national service project, and explore Long Island/New York City.
