Letting the Good Times Roll at Delta Sigma Pi's 51st Grand Chapter Congress

Aug 23, 2017 – Over 1,200 brothers and guests traveled from all over the country to gather in The Big Easy and share the ultimate Deltasig experience - Grand Chapter Congress.
Grand Chapter Congress
From the Friday night events including a parade of more than 1,000 Deltasigs and the Natchez Riverboat, to the Grand President's Tailgate and dance, and Eddie Stephens' inspirational keynote speech "Extraordinary Leader," those four days brought memories that will not soon be forgotten. 

Brothers collected over 100 lbs. of pop tabs, donated food, bottled water, toiletries, toys and $300 for the New Orleans Ronald McDonald House. Additionally, nearly 60 brothers and guests teamed up with Save Our Cemeteries to remove trash, weeds and other vegetation from around tombs in New Orleans' historical cemeteries. 

Thank you to everyone who joined us in New Orleans!
