Beta expands your horizons. Literally. Whether through local service projects, state conventions, leadership summits, summer leadership opportunities or our annual national convention, members have the opportunity to get out–and, in some cases, way out–to make a difference. It provides students with an ideal environment in which to grow. Not to mention, there’s no better (or more fun) way to see new places. Simply put, Beta offers a long list of one-of-a-kind experiences for one-of-a-kind students.
Beta holds annual state conventions in 18 states, both for Senior and Junior Beta divisions, and winners of these state events go on to compete on a national level. Activities range from academic contests to quiz bowls to talent competitions. Conventions give members the opportunity to interact, share project ideas and showcase their academic and leadership abilities. Plus, the conventions are held in exciting locations, giving members the chance to see cities and places they might not ordinarily have the opportunity to see. All 2021-2022 State Conventions will offer on-site and virtual options to all participants. Details can be found in each State Convention Handbook.

Student Leadership Summits offer students from all over America—and as far away as Poland and Australia—a chance to learn how to become more effective leaders, build positive self-esteem and overcome negative peer pressure.
Whether engaging in energetic group activities and discussions, listening to motivational speakers, watching inspirational videos or competing in team-building events, you’ll develop enduring friendships and take home ideas that will enable you to become a better student, leader and person. All Fall 2021 Leadership Summits will be offered in-person.
