Phi Alpha Theta 2018 Biennial Convention New Orleans

InterContinental Hotel, January 3-6, 2018

The 2018 Phi Alpha Theta Biennial Convention will be held in New Orleans from January 3 to 6 at the InterContinental Hotel on St. Charles Street.   The timing is perfect as 2018 marks the 300th anniversary of this fascinating and historic city.  There will be lots to do and see throughout the days of our conference, in addition to our program of events.

The InterContinental Hotel, a luxury hotel, coveted for its location and Four-Diamond status is situated in the heart of the Business District.  It is ideally located just two blocks from the historic French Quarter and six blocks from the banks of the Mississippi River.   The French Quarter is a short five-minute walk away.  We have negotiated a very reasonable room rate of $145 per night for both single and double rooms ($30 for each additional person, per room, per night not including sales tax).   To book a hotel reservation click here.  Hotel amenities include free Wi-Fi, fitness center, roof-top pool and direct access to the St. Charles Streetcar, the oldest continually running streetcar line in the world.   Take a trolley ride past magnificent Victorian mansions and oak trees that line the streets of St. Charles Avenue. Make stops throughout the Garden District, New Orleans’ oldest American neighborhood, famous for its Antebellum (or pre Civil-War) mansions.

The program will begin with a half day of panel sessions on Wednesday, the first day, followed by three full days of presentations on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  The conference program will also include a number of How-To Panels on a variety of topics of interest to students.  We are now accepting student paper submissions, faculty paper submissions, panel chair volunteers, round table submissions and pre-determined panels.  The Call for Papers deadline is November 1, 2017.  Faculty advisors should keep in mind a student must be a member in order to present at the Biennial.
