Omega Phi Alpha’s National Convention is the biennial gathering of delegates from each active university chapter, national officers, and alumnae representatives.
The delegation makes decisions that will guide the future of the sorority. Although day-to-day administrative decisions are made during the year by the national officers, all of the sorority’s important national issues are decided by the convention delegation.
In addition, a large part of the convention is devoted to exchanging ideas, networking, and developing skills that chapter leaders will use in maintaining a healthy chapter. But the best part of attending the convention is the chance to make new OPA memories beyond college, build new friendships, strengthen bonds with other sisters, and find a new way for personal growth within the sorority.
With the status of the COVID-19 pandemic ever-changing, out of an abundance of caution and with members’ safety at the forefront of our minds, Convention 2021 slated to be held in July will now be held virtually. Our fabulous events team is hard at work planning engaging content for Convention 2021 and is investing time and energy in identifying the best solutions to deliver this integral event.
More information on Convention 2021 will be forthcoming.

Active Chapter Delegates
All chapters must be represented at the national convention. Active chapters in good standing should send at least two voting delegates to represent their members.
Additional active members can also attend and participate in all convention activities. The more who attend, the better each chapter will be as a result.
All alumnae are invited to register and attend the convention. Alumnae can attend on their own or apply to be an alumnae delegate. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Alumnae make a huge contribution at this event. The planning committee, coordinators, and national leaders are almost all alumnae. All alumnae attending the convention can offer input to the alumnae delegates, who are then responsible for casting their votes on behalf of all alumnae members worldwide.
