Red and Black Convention Awards (Gala Dinner)

The Gala is the culminating, most exciting, and most special event of the convention, regularly getting top reviews in post-convention surveys. Join hundreds of attendees at this festive dinner, share stimulating conversations and laughter, and be present when thousands of dollars are awarded for the best convention presentations. Don’t miss this opportunity to sport your red and black finery while celebrating your membership in Sigma Tau Delta or Sigma Kappa Delta.

Convention registration fees do NOT include the Red & Black Convention Awards (Gala Dinner) on Saturday, March 28 at 6:30 p.m. Your highly subsidized banquet fee is a separate $25.00 for convention registrants and $30.00 for each non-registered guest. If you have dietary restrictions, complete the Dietary Restriction Requests form when you register for the convention.

What to Wear at the Convention

Presenters should wear business attire for their presentations. Don your school spirit wear for the Wednesday Opening Ceremony and Friday Business Meeting. For the Red & Black Convention Awards Gala, members are encouraged to wear Society colors and cords and/or medallions for this semi-formal attired event.

Americans with Disabilities Act

Sigma Tau Delta makes every effort to accommodate those who have special needs relating to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Should you or anyone with you require special assistance, please submit a list of your requirements with your registration.
