51st Biennial Conclave Changes Location

June 17, 2020

The International Executive Board (IEB) and FarmHouse Headquarters Staff have been closely monitoring the pandemic, redirecting support for our chapters and associations and preparing for the upcoming academic year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Conclave host hotel in Louisville, Ky., is unable to host FarmHouse’s Conclave as planned. After careful consideration, the IEB and Fraternity Staff have decided the 2020 Conclave will be hosted as an abbreviated weekend held in St. Louis, Mo at the Marriott Airport Hotel.

On Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, the Fraternity will meet its bylaw obligation and host its biennial business meeting in conjunction with educational sessions focused on preparing FarmHouse to reopen in fall 2020. For the safety of attendees, no social events, awards presentations or excursions will occur during Conclave. 

The hotel staff and FarmHouse staff are taking every precaution to host a safe and productive event. Please review the following frequently asked questions to better inform yourself about the decision to host the abbreviated Conclave business meeting and educational sessions.

Attendees are limited to Chapter Presidents (or designated delegate), Association delegates and Recruitment Vice Presidents. We ask those attending to register below by noon, Friday, June 26. Those attending should not make flight reservations until after the registration deadline. A separate communication will be provided with instructions at that time. If there are significant developments with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff will provide an update directly to delegates registered.
