National EventsProgramming held for the benefit of our nationwide Brotherhood
The majority of programs, events and initiatives sponsored by Lambda Theta Phi are carried out at the undergraduate and alumni or sector levels. These activities include charity fundraising, community clean-ups, mentoring in schools, educational and cultural programming, and hosting motivational speakers on campus. Social events at the undergraduate level include picnics, mixers, and parties. Our alumni also engage in social activities ranging from poker and domino nights to networking receptions and leadership development seminars.
Throughout the country, sectors convene to sponsor regional dinners and conferences modeled after the national events. Although special National Board events are presented sporadically, certain events are consistently sponsored by the National Board:
National Anniversary Banquet
The Fraternity has sponsored a national banquet dating back to December of 1978. The banquet is a formal event, which features keynote speakers, dancing and entertainment in an elegant ballroom setting. At the banquets, the National Board recognizes individuals, chapters and sectors for their contributions and accomplishments. Once held each year, the National Anniversary Banquet is now held every five years. The next banquet will be held in December 2015 in recognition of our 40th anniversary.
The National Convention is hosted every two years convening the voting representatives from all of the Fraternity’s regions and the National Executive Board. Issues concerning the Fraternity at a national level are addressed, constitutional amendments, if any, are discussed and voted upon, and elections for the various national offices are held at these gatherings. Brothers are also given a number of professional and brotherhood development workshops to attend.
