2019 Convention Awards

More than 200 sisters gathered in Scottsdale, Arizona, July 18-21, 2019 for the 2019 National Convention. The culmination of convention came during the Emerald Banquet on Saturday night when chapters and sisters were recognized for their achievements.  This year the program shifted from an academic year review to a calendar year.  Since the shift came after the 2018 National Conclave, the awards year covered September 1 – December 31, 2018.  Below are the 2018 National Award recipients:
