Sigma Tau Delta Conventions

Every spring, Sigma Tau Delta holds its annual international convention, a unique event that allows hundreds of members and Chapter Advisors from around the United States and beyond to gather in one locale, share experiences and expertise, be recognized for their achievements, and participate in the official proceedings of the Society. The convention also provides opportunities to discover new ideas in English and English-related disciplines, while engaging with speakers, presenters, and texts that members might not otherwise encounter.

Recent conventions have been held in St. Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, Minneapolis, Albuquerque, Savannah, Portland, and New Orleans. Convention location decisions take into account many factors—including costs to students and demographics—and make every effort to provide exciting and engaging offerings both at each convention and in our host cities.

We have begun the process of planning for the virtual 2021 Sigma Tau Delta Convention for next March. We are developing plans for a convention similar to ones in the past, with hundreds of student presentations, inspiring speakers, and numerous leadership and sociactivitiesal activities. But we are also considering ways to preserve much of the convention experience if we have to make modifications based upon current guidelines for health and safety. A

Plan ahead! The 2022 International Convention will be held March 30 – April 2, 2022, at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, GA.
