Chicago Society Conclave 2023 Events Schedule

Updated: Aug 3



We reckon it's almost time to saddle up and hit the trail to San Antonio for Conclave 2023! It's been twenty years since Conclave last rode into San Antonio and we've been roping and wrangling some of the most memorable events you're bound to experience in the heart of Texas. From catching up with old friends and making new ones at our Welcome Reception, to charting the future at our Working Group Coffee, we've got a whole lot of excitement rustled up just for you.

From left to right: Sigma Phi Epsilon Conclave logos from San Antonio, TX (1985, 2003, and 2023).


And y'all better be ready to kick up some dust at our grand reception in Crockett AB, where we'll be tipping our hats to our cherished members, volunteers, and allies. We're gathering 'round the cash bar for a right proper celebration of our SigEp community, Texas style! So pack your boots, grab your hat, and remember - the Lone Star State is big, but the heart of Sigma Phi Epsilon and the Chicago Society is even bigger. We can't wait to see you in San Antonio for Conclave 2023. And DM @Codyrapp11 on Instagram to be added to the Chicago Society IG Group for real-time updates and additional announcements.
