Regional Events

Participating in regional conferences and events is a great way to connect with other members of Sigma Tau Delta, make new professional contacts, expand your knowledge, and gain valuable experience presenting papers.

If your chapter is contemplating hosting a regional event, your first step should be to contact your Regent for information about promotional, and possible financial, assistance. Note: In order not to conflict with Sigma Tau Delta's annual spring convention, regional events should only be planned for the fall.

As a service to its members, Sigma Tau Delta provides links to regional conferences and other non-Society-sponsored English events. If you wish to have a link to your conference or event on this web page, please complete the Event Posting Request Form.

Regional events will be posted on this page.
