2017 Beta Beta Beta South Central Regional Convention
Mt. Lebanon Retreat Center
March 31-April 2
Are You Presenting?
Check out the Presentation Schedule page for times and locations.
Oral presentations will take place Saturday morning from 9:15-11:45 in three locations concurrent. Oral presentations must be uploaded to the DBU computer at the registration table by 11:00pm on Friday (the night before talks). Oral Presenters should bring presentations on a memory stick. Practice rooms will be available in Sycamore and Chinaberry common rooms from 3:00pm on Friday until 11:15am on Saturday. Remote clickers will be available in order for presenters to advance slides. Moderators will also be available to advance slides on request. Oral presentations must not exceed 15 minutes in length, including time for questions; therefore, you are encouraged to keep your presentation to 10-12 minutes, leaving 3-5 minutes for questions (recall there is a judging criterion for quality of answers to questions). Presentation moderators will not allow you to go beyond 15 minutes.
Poster sessions will take place Saturday afternoon from 1:00-2:30 in the Patton Chapel. Posters setup is from Friday 11:00pm to Saturday 12:30pm. Judging will begin at 1:00pm. Easels and poster boards are available at DBU Hospitality House for Poster Presenters. Posters must be removed by Saturday evening.

The price of registration covers accommodations and all students will stay in the cabins at Mt. Lebanon. There is no single occupancy so all students will share rooms with other students.
We will be using Patton Chapel for our Friday evening Chapter Introductions and the Saturday Business Meeting. The Poster sessions will also be located in the Patton Chapel. Lone Star Room, and the common room of Evergreen Lodge and Redwood Lodge for presentations. Click here for a detailed look at Mt. Lebanon facilities and here for a campus Map of Mount Lebanon.
The DBU Hospitality House will be the hub; with registration, scrapbook judging, check-out, and general information. The Dining Hall will provide our meals.
If you require special accommodations please contact Debra Hinson at firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible.
There is Wi-Fi but only near the main office (Lone Star Room, motel rooms, etc.).
What to bring?
