Convention Time, Alumni Events, & Graduate Seminar (October 2017)

Ann Arbor and Dearborn, Michigan, will be the site of Tau Beta Pi’s 2017 Convention. We hope to see you there in less than five days!

We expect some exciting events, plenty of fun and hard work, and most importantly the camaraderie of our members as they meet, network, and spend time together working on the annual business of the Association. Attendees will receive a large Convention program, small pocket schedule, 4GB flash drive with uploaded content, a welcoming gift from the host chapter, and much more!
