Beta Beta Beta Conventions

 

National Membership registration fees help support undergraduate research grants every year, 15 district conventions every year, and the national convention every other year. Just as the local chapter is the center of TriBeta programs, the district convention is the most important regional project. It offers student members a chance to report their research and to hear from outstanding graduate investigators and teachers who give invited lectures and hold informal discussions.

 

Like graduate society meetings, the national conventions offer a chance to share current research and discuss scientific issues. Field trips have become an important part of the national convention which is often centered around some biological feature unique to the convention locale.​
