DKE Convention

Delta kappa epsilon convention

A DKE convention is an annual gathering of members from different chapters of a fraternity organization. The purpose of the convention is to bring members together to discuss and vote on important issues facing the fraternity, elect new leaders, and attend educational workshops and networking events. The convention also provides an opportunity for members to build relationships, share ideas, and celebrate the fraternity’s history and traditions. Conventions are typically hosted by the national headquarters of the fraternity and are attended by undergraduate members, alumni, and representatives from each chapter.
