Convention in Nashville and
an Afternoon at the Opry

Photo by: Tennessee Department of Tourist Development

Convention goers will be discovering why Nashville is called Music City, U.S.A. On Sunday afternoon, the entire Convention will be attend-
ing the matinee performance at the famous Grand Ole Opry. There is nothing in the world like the Grand Ole Opry; so coming to Conven-
tion will include an extra special treat.



We /jflue so mwc/7 to look forward to when we meet in Nashville for our Interna-
tional Conventon June 30-July 3. AOYl has truly been "on the move" this bien-
nium. One of the greatest indications of this will be the presence of the delegates
from our several new collegiate and alumnae chapters installed this biennium.

The workshops we have planned also reflect the progress we have been making.
Designed to meet the needs of our membership today, the ideas for the workshops
have come from Council members who were asked for their input in the selection of

However, the progress of A O I 1 has not taken us away from the traditions that
are the basis of our organization. This Convention, like those of the past, will
afford both delegates and non-delegates the opportunity to experience the timeless
and international essence of our Fraternity. This is especially felt in the business
sessions of the Convention which embody the democratic process that has always
been the foundation of our operations.

The beautiful Opryland Hotel promises to add to the excitement of Convention.
Only a year old, the hotel is a complex of six buildings. The main building houses
the lobby, restaurants, shops, and an impressive glass-domed galleria. A unique
feature of one of the restaurants is that it is the location for the airing of a Nash-
ville morning radio show. Guests of the hotel can take advantage of being part of a
live radio broadcast while enjoying breakfast!

The International Convention in Nashville will be an exciting and enjoyable
way to spend your Fourth of July weekend. Although Convention is months away,
noiv is the time to make plans to come and share in making this a memorable expe-
