Opportunity to Attend National Fraternal Leadership Conference

OFSA/OSLD is eager to announce the opening of applications for fraternity/sorority current or up-and-coming leaders to attend a national leadership conference this February in Indianapolis, IN!  

What is it?  The AFLV-Central conference takes place every year in the spring, bringing together nearly 3,000 participants to engage in learning and skill development related to fraternal leadership.  This year Lehigh is excited to be joining that national group and will be taking a small delegate to attend the conference from February 2-5, 2017.

Who should attend?  Current sophomores or juniors (or non-graduating seniors) who are seeking to enhance their leadership knowledge and skills, to become more effective leaders for the fraternity/sorority and campus community.  Particular consideration will be given to those with intentions to serve the fraternity/sorority community from a community leadership role (governing councils, GEM, etc.).

How is it funded?  Though this opportunity costs ~$800 per person, most costs are generously covered by the governing councils and DOS offices.  Because of the significant financial investment, we are asking each student to submit a $100 deposit* to confirm their spot, which will be refunded at the end of the trip.
*Cost should not deter applications - if you have concern about affording the deposit, please reach out to me and we can discuss alternative arrangements and sponsorship opportunities.

What should I do now?  Apply!  Or spread the word by sharing this post - remember that it's especially impactful when you share with a peer that you think they are a great leader and would enjoy/benefit from this experience.

Please submit your interest as soon as possible; by 1/16 at noon, at the latest!
Applicants will be notified of their status by 1/18.
