Delta Mu Delta has held biennial/triennial conferences for our chapters and alums for many years. We will be holding our next conference in Baltimore, November 3 – 5, 2017. With rising travel, hotel, and food costs, the Board realized that these conferences were a wonderful opportunity to get together with a small number of our community; however, are not a cost-effective use of our resources. In the past two years, DMD has been holding a series of networking receptions around the U.S. – beginning with Kansas City, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. These receptions have proven to be a more effective way for DMD to have face-to-face interactions with our members. Additionally, the Board is now committed to employing social media to maintain our lifetime relationship with our members.
