Plan to attend Rituals at Convention 2017!
For All Initiated Members
Among the most special opportunities during our International Conventions is for all initiated members to
share our Candle Lighting Service and the Opening and Closing Rituals. These proceedings never fail to
provide some of the most profound memories of Convention.
For the first time, the Opening Ritual will be held in conjunction with the Candle Lighting Service. Usually
conducted on different days, in the interest of time, these proceedings will be conducted back-to-back.
Because the Opening Ritual will immediately follow the Candle Lighting Service, only initiated members may
attend the Service.
Certain delegates have been notified they will participate in the Candle Lighting Service and two Rituals.
(Personal assignments are included in your Convention registration packet.) Each initiated member at
Convention is expected to attend and dress appropriately for the Candle Lighting Service and two Rituals,
whether or not she is a participant. Seating will be provided for all members who have not been asked to
participate in the proceedings.
Candle Lighting Service and Opening Ritual
9:30 pm - 11:30 pm, Wednesday, June 28th, Thurgood Marshall (Mezzanine Level)
• The beautiful and moving Candle Lighting Service, held only during International Conventions,
recognizes each collegiate chapter by citing its name and submotto.
• This year, the Service will be paired with the Opening Ritual. There will be NO break between the end
of the Candle Lighting Service and the start of the Opening Ritual.
• Participants in Candle Lighting will wear black skirts and blouses, or dresses, and black
• Participants in the Opening Ritual will wear white skirts and blouses, or dresses, and black
• Participants in Candle Lighting and Opening Ritual should wear to the Opening Program and
Welcome Dessert Reception attire specified for the Candle Lighting Service and Opening Ritual.
(There will not be time to change between the end of the reception and start of the rehearsal.) All
participants in both proceedings must attend the rehearsal.
• Observers will wear white skirts and blouses, or dresses, and black closed-toe shoes. You will
have time to change into the specified attire between the Welcome Dessert Reception and start of
the Candle Lighting Service and Opening Ritual.
Memorial, Installation of Officers, and Closing Ritual
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm, Saturday, July 1st, Thurgood Marshall (Mezzanine Level)
• The last proceeding of the Convention will combine three Rituals.
• First, the Memorial Ritual will recognize our sisters who were reported to have passed to our Alpha
Omega Chapter during the 2015-2017 biennium.
• Immediately following the Memorial Ritual will be the Installation of Officers.
• It will immediately be followed by the Ritual for Closing Convention.
• There will be NO breaks between the three Rituals.
• All participants and observers will wear white skirts and blouses, or dresses, and black closed-toe shoes.
Please remember that once you enter the room for any proceeding, you must be silent. When the Rituals end,
please remain seated quietly until the doorkeepers indicate you may leave or the lights are turned up.
Additional Information about Attire
The Candle Lighting Service, Opening Ritual, and Closing Ritual at this Convention may be attended by initiated
members only. Appropriate Ritual attire is required for all participants and observers.
• Undergarments should match your skin tone.
• Black closed-toe shoes will be worn for Candle Lighting and the two Rituals. White shoes, bare feet,

• Wear your AOII badge.
• Arrive early for the Candle Lighting Service/Opening Ritual and Closing Ritual to obtain the best seating. If
you will require special assistance, please tell the staff at the AOII Registration Desk as soon as possible.
• Doors will be locked promptly at the scheduled start time of the Candle Lighting Service/Opening Ritual and
Closing Ritual and will not be opened while the proceedings are being conducted.
• During the Memorial/Installation of Officers/Closing Rituals, special seating in the first two rows will be
reserved for collegiate members of chapters that lost a collegiate member during the biennium. This seating
will be available to all collegiate members of those chapters except the Chapter Presidents. (They will
participate in the Ritual.)
• While the robes are not secret and may be seen by non-AOIIs, we prefer for the hoods not to be seen.
However, due to the logistics in the hotel, the participants will be wearing their robes and hoods in the hall.
Thank you for your attention and your participation. We are blessed with a beautiful and meaningful Candle
Lighting Service and Rituals. Thank you for helping make them special and memorable experiences for all in
attendance at this International Convention.
Rituals and You at Convention 2017
For Convention Delegates
During Convention, you will have the privilege of being involved in our beautiful Candle Lighting Service,
Opening Ritual, and the Closing Ritual. As an official delegate to Convention, you will have important roles in
these proceedings. Please see your Convention registration packet for your personal assignments.
For the first time, the Opening Ritual will be held in conjunction with the Candle Lighting Service. Usually held
on different days, these proceedings will be conducted back-to-back in the interest of time. Because this

Rose Banquet Seating Information
Reserved seating will be offered for Saturday evening’s Rose Banquet.
Please follow these simple steps to help ensure the process works smoothly for everyone.
1. Decide who is in your party and pick a captain. Every member of your party must be personally asked to
prevent anyone being reserved at two or more tables. There will not be enough seating for everyone if this
2. The captain will come to Registration A Desk to select a table and your requested number of seats will be
reserved. Send only your captain to Registration A Desk to sign up for a group of seats. A seat layout of the
room will be provided. The captain will be required to record the names and chapters of all people in your
group on a master list. Please come prepared with the first and last name, not just titles (i.e. don’t write CA
for Alpha Alpha Chapter), for every member of the group.
3. The captain will be given tickets to hand out to each person in the group indicating your table number.
Please note: If the table seats ten (10) and your party includes eight (8), another party of two (2) will be
assigned to your table. Do not assume those open seats will remain open and ask others to join you.
4. Each person in your party should bring their ticket with them to the banquet to locate your table. If conflicts
occur, we have the master list of names to help solve any problems.
Rose Banquet Reservations begin at 7:15 am on Friday and will continue through Saturday evening
during open AOII Registration hours.
