A little bit about the General Convention:

The Fraternity meets in General Convention every two years. The meetings rotate through popular convention cities in various parts of the country in order to give more brothers the chance to attend.

The legislative power of the Grand Chapter is vested in the Convention. All active chapters and colonies in good standing are represented with a voting strength based on the number of undergraduate members on their rolls. Chartered alumni clubs are represented at the Convention with a voting power in proportion to their paid sustaining dues membership. Each member of the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Degree is entitled to one vote.

The General Convention has the power to amend the charter, the constitution and the bylaws of the Fraternity, and has the authority to veto policies established by the Grand Council between conventions.

A leadership school is held in conjunction with each convention and provides leadership training and personal development for each undergraduate in attendance. Several awards are also presented throughout the Convention, including Herbert L. Brown Outstanding Chapter Awards, the Order of the Diamond Circle for outstanding undergraduate members, the Medallion of Merit (Phi Sig's "Man of the Year"), Distinguished Alumnus, Outstanding Chapter Adviser and category awards for various areas of chapter operation.
