The 53rd National Convention of Kappa Epsilon will be held VIRTUALLY August 6 and 7, 2021.

Kappa Epsilon’s national convention is a special time when our members can reconnect and rededicate themselves to Kappa Epsilon. While we cannot be physically together this year, we can still celebrate all that we experienced, learned, and accomplished during this biennium.

To reflect the virtual nature of this convention, registration fees are dramatically reduced this year.

During this past year officer transitions, conventional chapter management, fraternity traditions, member recruitment and retention may have suffered. With this year’s virtual registration fees, chapters should consider sending additional officers or members. Typically, a chapter would anticipate budgeting more than $2,000 to send two delegates to convention. This year, a chapter could send their two delegates and three additional members for less than half of that cost. The fraternity hopes that chapters capitalize on this opportunity to have multiple chapter officers and members attend, particularly those involved with recruitment and education of potential new members to build a new foundation for strengthening their chapters on their return to campus.

The fraternity also hopes that our alumni members will take advantage of our lower registration fees to attend this year’s convention. Active alumni chapters should be sending one delegate, and the alumni at large will be allotted their delegates, based on registered attendees, per our national bylaws. This is a great opportunity for those who have not been able to attend a KE convention recently due to travel requirements and/or cost. As in the past, we will be offering CE credits for several of our programs

Despite the Spanish Influenza of 1918–1920 delaying the founding of our fraternity until 1921, Kappa Epsilon has flourished over the past 100 years! With virtual technology capabilities exploding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KE has been able to expand our services and programming to our members. We look forward to embracing this virtual convention as our way of celebrating how far KE has come in 100 years!
