2022 Convention Common Reader

2022 Convention Update

090721-Convention Update

We have begun the process of planning for the 2022 Sigma Tau Delta Convention for March 30- April 2. We are developing plans for a convention similar to ones in the past, with hundreds of student presentations, inspiring speakers, and numerous leadership and social activities.

Guidelines for submissions will be available soon.

Theme: Action

Now as in the past, Atlanta is a city of action. It’s the home of leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis, who encouraged us to get into “good trouble” in the name of change. The movie industry is among the most thriving in the country, the city is home to multiple professional sports teams, and the traffic is almost always bustling. The city’s motto, resurgens, means rising again, depicted as a phoenix rising from the ashes. As we emerge from the pandemic and look toward our first in-person convention in two years, this theme encapsulates our mutual hopefulness and excitement.
