About the General Convention
One of the Fraternity’s most cherished traditions, the General Convention is nearly as old as Beta Theta Pi itself and serves five purposes:
Business of the Fraternity
Recognition & Celebration
What to Expect at the 184th
For only the second time ever, Beta Theta Pi is hosting its annual reunion in Dallas! Next summer, the 184th General Convention is heading to the Lone Star State – home to the Fraternity’s chapters at Baylor, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas at Arlington and Texas Tech.
From August 3-6, Betas and their Sweethearts will convene at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel for a weekend of fun, inspiration, recognition and celebration. Within driving distance of the hotel, guests can experience the George W. Bush Presidential Center, AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys), Six Flags Over Texas, the iconic downtown skyline and more!
Check back next spring for additional information on special guests and a schedule of events. Beta looks forward to welcoming you to The Big D!
As the saying goes, “There’s nothing quite like a Beta Convention.”

183rd General Convention Highlights
The Beta Spirit flowed through the streets of Atlanta during the 183rd General Convention in August 2022. It was a joyful reunion as more than 700 Betas and friends gathered once again in the name of brotherhood.
There, legislative delegates granted charters to Beta’s two newest chapters, Beta Rho at Oregon and Epsilon Mu at George Mason; the Francis W. Shepardson Award was bestowed upon Bill Lowry, Kenyon ’56; country music singer-songwriter Rivers Rutherford, Mississippi ’89, accepted the Oxford Cup at the College Football Hall of Fame; 11 chapters received the coveted John Reily Knox Award; and more.
