The 83rd Grand Chapter Konklave will soon be here. If you are planning to attend, then by now you should be registered with International Headquarters and registered for your lodging. If not, then you are behind the planning curve.
The host hotel is the Rosen Shingle Creek located at 9939 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL. The hotel caters to conferences lot Kappa Alpha Psi and is built to handle large numbers. That said, you need to be registered with IHQ in order to get the Kappa Alpha Psi rate for lodging. It may not be too late, but it is close to the 11th hour. The registration as of April 2nd reflects 1,767 with 762 Senior Brothers ( 60 years old + ).
Fortunately, an internet search of the Orlando area will yield a plethora of resort hotels, in case you have to make other arrangements.
I have not been able to determine whether the Hotel or IHQ will be able to provide discounted tickets for the Orlando area attractions such as Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and many others. I recommend you consider taking a look on line for opportunities to purchase tickets in advance. The daily cost of these attractions is costly and time- consuming, if you are paying at the door.
There are several Kappa events that you need to keep in mind, in addition to business sessions— Closed Banquet, BBQ, Senior Kappas ( those receiving white jackets ), Veterans Luncheon, Foundation Luncheon and more.
I hope this is helpful.
