We’re only four months away from NerdNation 2014, Phi Theta Kappa’s 96th Annual Convention! Why wait any longer? Go ahead and reserve your spot today!

NerdNation promises to be an experience like none other. Upwards of 3,500 Phi Theta Kappa members, advisors, supporters, partners and friends from nearly 500 chapters will gather in April 24-26 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida, for engagement and networking unmatched elsewhere.

It’s an experience you do not want to miss. Guest speakers include Alison Levine, a history-making polar explorer and mountaineer, and Dr. Robert Ballard, an explorer best known for his 1985 discovery of the Titanic. They will each address the new 2014/2015 Honors Study Topic, Frontiers and the Spirit of Exploration.

Add to those presentations by Phi Theta Kappa Executive Director and CEO Dr. Rod Risley and 2013-2014 International President Daniel Chitty, and you’ve got a weekend sure to be filled with excitement, engagement, learning — and a lot of fun. And it’s all happening at the most magical place on Earth — Walt Disney World.
