Sigma Tau Delta Conventions

Past Conventions Image

Every spring, Sigma Tau Delta holds its annual international convention, a unique event that allows hundreds of members and sponsors from around the United States and beyond to gather in one locale, share experiences and expertise, be recognized for their achievements, and participate in the official proceedings of the Society. The convention also provides opportunities to discover new ideas in English and English-related disciplines, while engaging with speakers, presenters, and texts that members might not otherwise encounter.

Recent conventions have been held in Louisville, Minneapolis, Albuquerque, Savannah, Portland, and New Orleans. Convention location decisions take into account many factors—including costs to students and demographics—and make every effort to provide exciting and engaging offerings both at each convention and in our host cities.

Plan ahead! The 2019 International Convention will be held March 26 – 31, 2019, at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark in St. Louis, MO.
