Occurring every other summer, it is a meeting of the Alpha Sigma Phi body known as the Grand Chapter which is the supreme legislative body of the Fraternity. Meet your brothers from around the country in New Orleans and be part of directing the future of the Old Gal. The Initiation Exemplification, leadership programming and the Cardinal and Stone Award Gala are just some of the highlights of Grand Chapter.
Every chapter, provisional chapter and recognized alumni association sends a delegate to sit along side the Grand Council and the Past Grand Senior Presidents to vote during the Plenary Sessions.
Grand Chapter is not limited to delegates, any brother in good standing - undergraduate or alumni - is encouraged to attend.
The 56th Grand Chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi took place in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 21-24, 2022 at the Sheraton Hotel New Orleans (500 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130).
Alpha Sigma Phi's Grand Chapter has been around for more than 100 years. It's a staple in the fabric of our great fraternity and has played a major role in the direction of the Old Gal for many years. It allows our undergraduate body to come together, debate the future of the Fraternity and take action that can make that future more easily attainable for future generations.
Grand Chapter has always been a sought after event for both undergraduates and alumni, alike. The opportunity to bring the brotherhood together is typically an exciting prospect, but even more so in 2022. The last Grand Chapter took place all the way back in 2018. Little did we know at the time that it would be our last for four whole years, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Alpha Sigma Phi's premiere event offers more than legislation. It's a gathering point for over 1,000 brothers within the Mystic Circle and their guests. It's a time to celebrate our brotherhood and make new memories with those we already share memories with, and those with whom we will make new memories.
It's safe to say, attendees at Grand Chapter can expect great things and memories to last a lifetime.
