Schedule of Events

Congress is the supreme authority of the Fraternity. Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution states that “The legislative power of the Fraternity, except as otherwise provided in the Constitution, is vested exclusively in the Congress.” During the day, Congress spends its time conducting the affairs of the Fraternity, and the evenings are spent enjoying the host city and the Bonds of Brotherhood.

2024 Grand Alpha-Elect Election

The election of our next Grand Alpha-Elect will occur at the 158th Congress in July 2024.
All qualified voting delegates at Congress have a say in the election – no one Chapter or Alumni Association has more power than another. Candidates will be allowed to present themselves and their plans for the Fraternity, and the Congress in turn will have the opportunity to address questions to each.
For more details on eligibility for Grand Alpha-Elect and how to nominate a Brother, go to chiphi.org/grand-alpha-nomination-committee/ – a qualified candidate may be nominated by any Brother of Chi Phi.
