WELCOME FROM THE CONVENTION CHAIR

Saludos Hermanos,

Welcome to the official 2017 Phi Iota Alpha convention website. I am excited to welcome you to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.

If this is your first time coming to “The District” I invite you to embrace all that this great city has to offer. Widely considered the epicenter of the political world, D.C. is also home to a variety of experiences and nightlife, all of which I encourage you to explore. Enjoy any of the museums (many free) or iconic monuments & memorials. Take-in a ballgame at National’s Ballpark, home of the 2018 MLB All-Star game, or a show at the 9:30 club.  Take a day trip to the vineyards in Virginia or spend the day along the Potomac or Anacostia rivers – your choice!  All I ask is that you enjoy yourself; partake in our many culinary experiences, sample our locally brewed spirits and make memories you will take with you long beyond the weekend.

Serving as the capstone of our weekend will be a celebration like no other, in a location like no other. This year, I’m proud to announce that we will celebrate our banquet inside a building that promotes the same ideals of Pan-Americanism that we pledge to represent in our everyday lives, The Organization of American States (OAS). The OAS is the world’s oldest regional organization, dating back to the First International Conference of American States, held in Washington, D.C., from October 1889 to April 1890 and serves as a symbol of the influence our pillars have in our world today.

I look forward to celebrating with you all this summer. So please secure your registration and I’ll see you in July!
