2018 Convention Group Image, AmazonSmile, & UCLA New Professors (Oct. 2018)

The 2018 Convention of Tau Beta Pi has come to a close. This year’s attendees worked through the business of the Association in Denver, Colorado. Below is the group image of the 113th Convention taken by Kiffer Creveling, UT A ’13.

In the coming weeks, highlights, images, and summaries will be published on the Association’s website, in The Bent magazine, the electronic Bulletin publication, and throughout TBP social media. The 2018 Facebook group will be the best place to find updates from this year’s activities. We are already looking forward to next year in Columbus, Ohio!


According to an announcement from AmazonSmile, the donation rate will be increased ten times from October 29 thru November 2 (2018). “Thanks to our customers shopping at smile.amazon.com, AmazonSmile has donated over $100 million to charities around the world!
