The Sigma Tau Delta 2023 Convention will be held March 29 – April 1, 2023, at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, CO. Every spring, Sigma Tau Delta holds its annual international convention, a unique event that allows hundreds of members and Chapter Advisors from around the United States and beyond to gather in one locale, share experiences and expertise, be recognized for their achievements, and participate in the official proceedings of the Society. The convention also provides opportunities to discover new ideas in English and English-related disciplines, while interacting with speakers, presenters, and texts that members might not otherwise encounter.

Chapter Displays and Chapter Merchandise Sales
Sigma Tau Delta invites you to do some fundraising by having a Chapter Merchandise table or to show off what you’ve been up to by hosting a Chapter Display table at convention. Monetary awards are given for the top Chapter Displays.
- Tables are free of charge.
- Tables will be set up in a common area of the hotel, not in a room that locks, so plan accordingly, especially when it comes to securing merchandise and money.
- The hotel charges for receiving/holding/shipping materials; it is best to bring them independently. Individual chapters are responsible for any associated cost(s) their chapter incurs.
- There is a Target store in the area that has some basic office supplies; however, we did not see poster board when we were there last fall.
- Sigma Tau Delta is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items, nor will it pay or reimburse any fees associated with this event.
Chapter Display and Merchandise Sales tables will come with a 6′ table per chapter; if there is extensive interest, we will need to be creative with the space and tables may need to be shared. This will be known and communicated prior to the convention. Electric outlets will not be available.
Complete the interest form by March 14, 2023, to reserve your table(s).
