Phi Alpha Delta's Biennial Convention is held every two years to bring together P.A.D. student and alumni members from around the world. Delegates elect International Officers and set the Fraternity’s course for the future.

In addition to the business of Convention, workshops, panels and guest speakers on a variety of topics are offered. Convention presents invaluable fraternal networking and professional growth opportunities for both student and alumni members.

Convention 2016 was host to over 400 participants. Our goal is to welcome 500 P.A.D. members, guests, speakers/presenters, and vendors to Lexington in 2018!
