Become a Keeper!

First Time to Convention?

Traditionally known as “First Timers,” these members will sport “New BEE” ribbons, be teamed with a veteran convention attendee (a “Keeper”), and have a room (HIVE) set aside for networking and seeking information designed to enhance their total convention experience.

First time convention attendees will be contacted prior to their arrival in Philadelphia to receive tips as they prepare for the trip.

Meet-and-Greet on Tuesday, July 7th from 3 – 4 p.m.

At this event “New BEEs” will:

  • Focus on the convention program and how best to navigate the packed schedule.
  • Meet their “Keepers” face-to-face for the first time.
  • Learn how to share their convention experiences through social media and the DKG phone app.

Throughout the convention “Keepers” will arrange to be available to assist “New BEES” as needed.
Follow-up between “Keepers” and “New BEES” after the convention will be encouraged.
