Join Theta Delts from around the US and Canada in Boston for our 169th Annual Convention, August 11-13. Boston makes a great vacation destination in the summer. The city abounds with historic venues from the site of the Boston Massacre to the historic Old North Church. The Freedom Trail makes visiting these and many other historic sites easy to do. For those of you more interested in contemporary venues, the New England Aquarium, followed by a whale watching excursion on the Atlantic Ocean, makes for a great visit. Boston’s world renowned Science Museum is another fun option.
We are experimenting with a shorter convention schedule this year by eliminating one official day of meetings. Northeastern University will house our undergraduate delegates, host all of our meetings, and will also be the site of the Grand Banquet. Just a short 10 minute walk from the University, our alumni will be able to book rooms at the Colonnade Hotel at 120 Huntington Avenue, for our special convention rate of $239/night. The Colonnade Hotel is conveniently located near the Boston Fine Arts Museum and public transit stations. You can make your reservations by calling the hotel directly at 800-962-3030 or online at www.colonnadehotel.com using promo code: THH11A.
Due to the abbreviated schedule, a full convention registration is very affordable at less than $140.00 after fees. A few highlights: Thursday’s Welcome Reception will take us to The Pour House on Boston’s very active Boylston St. On Friday, The Central Fraternity Office will host a tour of the facilities and archives. The main event, as always, is The Grand Banquet, held this year at Northeastern’s Curry Student Center Ballroom, 360 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115. We hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-999-1847 x.0 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A full registration gets you into the Grand Banquet and all non-ticketed Alumni Events
