Convention Legislation

Legislative proposals include revisions to Omega Phi Alpha’s national constitutional and bylaws submitted by individual members, chapters, or committees.

It is important that voting delegates discuss these amendments with fellow members because all ratified amendments to the national constitution and bylaws take effect upon the final adjournment of Convention.

At Convention, there will be two sets of proposals, or agendas:

  • Legislative Agenda for Discussion: These proposed amendments are quite substantive. This means that during Convention, each amendment will be separately considered, discussed, and voted on.
  • Legislative Consent Agenda: These proposals will be considered and voted on as a collective group without discussion because they are considered low-impact, and mostly administrative in nature to reflect current terminology and practice.
