Registration & Exhibits
Check in for Delta Chi’s 61st International Convention! Receive your registration packet, attendee materials, delegate instructions, and more. Take some time to check out our exhibitors and mingle with brothers. To make the most of your time at Convention, we recommend you check in by early afternoon – you may even consider arriving in town Tuesday night. Chapter & Colony delegates are required to check in by Wednesday evening.
History of the Ritual
Take a journey through time and into the human mind as we explore the history of secret society rituals. We shall peer into the prehistory of human rituals, touch on the still super-secret Eleusinian Mysteries of ancient Greece and their classical cousins, and explore the origins of the Masonic Ritual, the least secret of secret society rituals, widely considered the mother of fraternity rituals. Along the way, we shall explore the elements of ritual, what gives rituals their power to move us, the relationship of fraternity initiations with other secret society rituals and other rites of passage, and the history of college fraternity rituals and past studies of their contents. Finally, we will follow the story of our own Delta Chi Ritual, including the origins of each of its four parts and some of our secrets.
Meet with Delta Chi staff or members of the Board of Regents to talk about Delta Chi. Meetings by appointment.

Information for Chapters
Chapter, Colony & Alumni Chapter Delegate Information
DELTA CHI LAW REQUIRES THAT EACH CHAPTER, COLONY, AND ALUMNI CHAPTER HAVE REPRESENTATION AT THE CONVENTION.
Full information and background on delegates can be found here.
Ideally, delegations from each undergraduate chapter will be comprised of three people: two active student members likely to return to the chapter the following year, and one alumnus, who is either that chapter’s “BB” or an alumnus of that chapter. At least one delegate from each undergraduate chapter must be an initiated member. As well, no one individual can serve as a delegate for more than one chapter. (See Delta Chi By-Laws – Article II, Section 1.)
Delegates must be officially declared by May 31, 2018. DECLARE DELEGATES HERE.
Schedule of events
Delegates should plan to arrive in town early Wednesday, and depart on Sunday.
Once your delegation is registered for Convention, please make sure to book your hotel rooms at the discounted convention rate. Delta Chi has a minimum number of rooms it must fill, so delegates are expected to stay at the hotel.
Following Delta Chi Regulations, Article II, Section 1, and the decision of the Executive Committee, each chapter and colony located more than 500 miles from Denver can receive some level of travel assistance. The level of assistance is dependent on the chapter or colony’s distance from Denver. Failure to attend the required portions of the keynote sessions, breakout sessions, and/or missing the required roll calls during the business meetings will result in the loss of travel assistance to your Chapter.
The travel assistance is not designed to and will not cover all of the costs of traveling to or hotel costs at the Convention. It is between the delegates and the chapter to decide how the travel assistance reimbursement, which is sent to the chapter in September or October, is distributed. Delta Chi HQ will issue a credit to the Chapter account after the assistance has been approved. It is up to the Chapter to pass on the assistance to the attendee if the attendee is entitled to it (e.g. attendee used his own funds to cover his travel to Convention).
The application for travel assistance will be made available after the end of Convention, and the final amount of assistance a chapter / colony receives depends on the decision of the Executive Committee.
Sample Packing List:
• Casual shirts (t-shirts)
• Casual pants (jeans, shorts)
• Dress shirts (button downs, polos)
• Dress pants (khakis, slacks)
• Active wear (gym clothes and clothes for VK race and/or run)
• Sleep wear
• Swimming trunks
• Dress shoes (not Sperrys)
• Casual shoes
• Sports Coat
• Suit (or Tux)
• Dental floss
• Soap/Body Wash
• Gel/Hairspray/Hair Products
• Razor/Shaving Gel and Aftershave
• Delta Chi Badge/ Convention Ladder
• Wrist Watch
• Fit-Bit (You’re sure to meet all those step goals!)
• Laptop (not required for convention purposes)
• Chargers (cell phone, laptop, tablet, etc.)
• Cornerstone (not required)
• Water Bottle
• Gum, Chap Stick, etc.
Convention Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank:
- Check rates directly on websites and book at least four weeks out for the best prices.
- Checking a bag carries a fee unless you are elite status, but the $25 average fee is likely worth it.
- Round trip flights are currently averaging anywhere from $200-$400.
If you’re coming from the West Coast, Midwest or Southwest then driving might be a better option.
- Use a site like roadtrippers.com to not only plan your route but to help you calculate estimated gas, tourist spots along the way, hotels, etc.
- For example: from Iowa City, IA it’s an 11-hour drive but only costs $83 in gas (one way).
- You can pick up guys from other chapters along the way to carpool and cut costs.
- Renting a minivan costs about $450 and probably seats eight. This includes unlimited miles.
- If you do this you’re looking at around $100 / man round trip for travel.
Stay at the Renaissance Denver Stapleton – you don’t want to stay offsite; the schedule is too packed.
- All in for the week the cost is $600 for the room and taxes.
- Split this between four men and the result is $150 per man
In general, budget to spend around $50 dollars a day.
Breakfast and dinner on your own, lunch will be provided.
Breakfast and dinner on your own, lunch will be provided.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will all be provided.
The Fraternity and other vendors will be selling some good merchandise. You’ll want some spending money for that and other random stuff while you’re there. You decide how much your budget can handle.
** The Bottom Line **
This is a rough estimate of how much it’ll all cost on top of the registration fee:
- Assuming four men are coming from your chapter, not getting a tux and $100 for randomness: Flying option around $875.
- Driving – whether four of you pile in your buddy’s Accord, eight of you pile in a minivan, or you pull off the 15-passenger safe bus, you’re looking at about $640.
