Early Schedule Preview

Below is an early preview of the Conclave schedule, subject to change.


Conclave Schedule

From flights abroad to car rides across the country, hundreds of Fraters from hundreds of area codes will descend into Orlando to conduct the business of the Fraternity. The opening day of Conclave will allow Tekes to begin giving back immediately. You should plan your travel to arrive between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern Time. Our registration opens at noon and our service project will begin immediately. This "come as you are" service event gives Tekes an opportunity to send letters to the troops and build kits for new pet owners. Then, you can explore the city for a great spot to eat such as at Pointe Orlando or Disney Springs®, only a few minutes away. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., be in ritual attire for the Opening Session of the Grand Chapter.


Friends & Family Schedule

After you get checked in at the registration booth, whether this is your first Conclave or you are a seasoned veteran, please join us for the service project then pool party to meet other friends and family members who are attending Conclave.

New Fraters and esteemed alumni will have the opportunity to attend an array of sessions addressing personal and chapter development during the Teke Institute. During the Teke Institute, Nominations and Legislative Hearing committee meetings begin. Committee members are selected at random during the Opening Session. To refuel the engines, the Awards Luncheon will take place at high noon with accolades being handed out to deserving groups and individuals. Following the Awards Luncheon, the Teke Institute continues before afternoon programming sets in. Afterward, we will head out of the hotel to our Off-Site Event at Walt Disney World® Resort / Epcot®!

Ways to Pay for Conclave

Conclave Savings Plan

Every chapter in Tau Kappa Epsilon is billed a Conclave Savings Plan of $250 per semester. This savings plan is built up to help cover the cost of your voting delegate to register for Conclave. Chapters should pay their CSP in full prior to registering for Conclave.

When you register for Conclave, your Conclave Savings Plan balance will appear on the payment page. This savings plan cannot be retained from Conclave to Conclave and should be used to lower the cost of registering.

Special Projects

Your Special Projects Fund is money kept by the TKE Educational Foundation to support your chapter’s educational initiatives. Included in those initiatives are registration costs to TKE conferences, such as Conclave. If you have alumni looking to donate and support their home chapter, utilize Special Projects as an outlet for tax-deductible donations to be made.

When you register for Conclave, your Special Projects Fund balance will appear on the payment page, and you can choose to utilize any or all of the money in that account, provided there is a $200 minimum balance available and it is approved by your Board of Advisors Chairman.

Now is the time to start your fundraising campaign to bolster your account.

Chapter Credits

You may have noticed a ‘credits available’ line in your financial summary on the TKE Module. Chapter Credits can be added to your statement for various reasons and once added, they can be applied to outstanding invoices, including Conclave registrations. To utilize chapter credits, select it as a method of payment when you come to the final step in your registration. Our financial team will approve the usage of these credits, and you will have saved yourself and your chapter some money by upholding your financial obligations to the Fraternity.

School Funding

Many colleges and universities set aside money in their student activities budget to support students in campus organizations who attend educational conferences. Don’t wait until the last minute to look into this possibility.

Go to your Fraternity & Sorority Life or Student Government offices today and ask about financial support for Conclave. Oftentimes, all you have to do is fill out an application with the details of the conference, and your school will help offset some or all of the costs for you and your brothers to attend.

Funding Document

Family Support

With Conclave taking place just a month or two after graduation, don’t forget to ask your family and friends to help you attend an event that will make you not only a better Frater, but a better man. You’ll find looking to make your chapter/colony, campus and community a better place is usually a cause worthy of financial backing from your parents, grandparents, and others close to you.

Alumni - Make It a Reunion

We have no doubt that TKE's 60th Conclave will be a memory of a lifetime.

During the three-day event, alumni delegates of registered alumni associations will have the opportunity to vote on key leadership positions within the Fraternity, vote on proposed Black Book legislation, recognize our best and brightest Fraters and Chapters and participate in structured leadership development courses.

You can view the legislative packet here.

Service Project Options

In each city we hold Conclave, the men of Tau Kappa Epsilon perform a service project. We've made a few changes this year to the service project so more Fraters can participate and make an impact.

This year, we will hold the service project on Thursday during registration. This will provide you an opportunity to roll up your sleeves, network with other Tekes and make an impact on both the local community and abroad.

Kits for Kats and Packages for Puppies: Volunteers will put together adoption kit packages for new pet owners who have adopted pets. These kits for kats and packages for puppies will provide the necessary tools for the pet adopter to get started on the right foot and help incentivize animal shelters and potential adopters to take the step.

Letters for Heroes: Sometimes a small act such as writing a letter to someone can go a long way. Many of our veterans and active military men and women love receiving letters of support and thanks. This small act of kindness has a huge impact for those who receive these handmade letters.
