According to the Constitution of Phi Delta Chi, Regional Conferences are to be held in each year that Grand Council is not in session. Currently Regional Conferences are held in the spring of even-numbered years. Regional Conferences provide an inexpensive opportunity for Phi Delta Chi Brothers to attend a nearby conclave of multiple Phi Delta Chi Chapters. One could call the Regional Conference "A Taste of Phi Delta Chi," as Brothers are given the opportunity to sample the offerings of Phi Delta Chi as a national organization, including leadership training, officer training, and brotherhood. Regional and national fraternity business is also conducted during this weekend program. Attendees have an opportunity to recommend and review proposed changes in regional or Phi Delta Chi policy or the Constitution of Phi Delta Chi. Additionally, the next Regional Correspondent is elected during the Regional Conference.
Regional Conference sites are rotated in alphabetic order by Greek name (tentative year to host the Regional Conference). No chapter is obligated to host a Regional Conference, but nearly all welcome its arrival.
