What is National Convention?
The KTE National Convention is a yearly gathering for all members (local, National, or alumni) at a selected chapter’s University or College campus. At Convention, attendees discuss issues and topics at a chapter and National level, and where necessary, voting is conducted on issues which will affect the organization as a whole.
