To our membership,


First and foremost, we hope this message finds you and your family safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.  Many of you have reached out to Headquarters regarding our 63rd General Convention scheduled for this August.  While Council had sincerely hoped that we would be able to go forward with our 2020 Sesquicentennial Convention in Cancún, México this year, it became apparent that it would not be possible to do so safely given the ongoing pandemic caused by the COVID-19 Virus. 

Faced with exigent circumstances, and after much deliberation, Council unanimously decided it had no choice other than to reschedule our 2020 General Convention.  Phi Delta Phi’s Court of Appeals concurred with Council's decision. 

Our Conventions are traditionally held around the first week of August because that is when the majority of law students around the world are able to attend; therefore, Council was able to negotiate with the original hotel successfully to secure the first week of August 2021 for the 63rd General Convention.  We will still be at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Resort in Cancún, México and they have agreed to honor our previously negotiated excellent rates.  

Headquarters will be reaching out individually to everyone who has already registered for the 2020 General Convention to arrange for refunds and/or registration carryovers to the 2021 Convention.  In the interim, should you have questions, please feel free to call or email Headquarters.

On behalf of the Council and the Court, we sincerely appreciate your understanding and we look forward to seeing many of you in 2021.  Please mark your calendars for the 63rd General Convention, August 4 - 8, 2021.

 

Please stay safe and well!
