Conference INFO Award Recipients

Students and advisors wearing award recipient and/or finalist ribbons represent the councils which have applied and been selected to receive awards at the recognition banquet on Saturday. Ask these individuals about the outstanding work they are doing on their campuses, sign up for an awards consultation, and check out the AFLV Awards Ed session on Saturday afternoon.

Conduct

No excessive noise should be heard in the hotel hallways at any time. It is important to respect the privacy of all hotel guests, especially those who are not involved with our conference. See the Standards Policy below for more information and full details.

Conference Dress

Badge attire should be worn for all sessions of the conference except the NBGLC Stroll Competition. The Saturday evening banquet attire is a coat and tie for men and semiformal dress for women. Follow us on Pinterest for examples of what is and is not appropriate to wear.

Daily Announcements

All updates on conference activities will be announced in the first general session each day. You can also follow us on Twitter and download the Guidebook App for an up to date scheadule. If you wish to make a general announcement, the deadline is noon the previous day. Announcements should be submitted in writing to the conference office in Room 201/202.

Ed Session Evaluations

Provide feedback for each educational session using paper evaluations, which will be available in each session room. Evaluations are essential to the program presenter and help us make AFLV Central even better. We really do care what you think. Return your completed session evaluations to the program presenter or to the registration desk in Griffin Hall. The overall conference evaluation will be available electronically immediately following the conference.

Meals

Your nametag will be your admission to all meals except for Saturday’s lunch. Designated meal tickets are issued to attendees based off of their registration and can be exchanged at the registration desk if available. No refunds are available for missed meals or lost nametags. Additional meal tickets can be purchased from the registration desk.

Emergencies

Please report injuries and illnesses to hotel security through the hotel operator and contact an AFLV Central Office staff member immediately.

Nametags

Nametags must be worn at all times. Nametags are your admission ticket to all Ed sessions, general sessions, meals, and any special events (seriously, all conference events). If you lose your nametag, you will be charged a $20 replacement fee, so don’t lose it!

Promptness

Please arrive early to the educational sessions because many sessions fill up quickly! Think about it: if there’s a session you’re super excited to attend, there’s a pretty good chance dozens or even hundreds of other people are also super excited. Time is allowed between sessions to ask questions, get presenter contact information, etc. Because seating capacity is limited for some rooms, sessions could close, so plan ahead and arrive early. If your session is full, consider checking out one of our featured speakers!

Questions

Find any member of our intern team, Conference Committee, or Central Office staff if you have questions. All of our team members are easily identified by our silver AFLV nametags.

Registration

Delegates should check in with the hotel BEFORE checking in with the conference. Conference registration is located in Griffin Hall. All AFLV Central participants must be registered for the conference and must wear their nametags at all times. Thanks to Phired Up Productions for serving as our WELCOME committee.

Stroll Practice

Practice for the NBGLC stroll competition is not allowed in hallways outside of guest rooms or breakout rooms that are in session. We know you’re determined to win, but it’s hard to sleep or learn when there’s strolling going on right outside! Teams will have time to practice Thursday from 11:00p.m.-12:00a.m. following the Stroll Competition meeting Thursday at 10:00p.m. in White River E. Designated practice locations for the above time will be shared at the meeting.

Hotel Info

Check In

Check in is at 3:00 p.m. You will be able to leave your luggage at the bellman station if you arrive early.

Check Out

Check out on Sunday is at 11:00 a.m. You are able to expedite the process by checking out from the television in your room. If you need extra time, please make arrangements with the front desk.

Bills

All hotel guests are responsible for paying their hotel bills although you are registered as being affiliated with AFLV, we will not assume any responsibility for your account while attending the conference. Tipping is at your discretion however, we recommend a minimum of 15%. For bell service, please tip $2.00 per bag depending on the size and weight of each bag.

Hotel Security

The JW Marriott does everything it can to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. Should an emergency arise, please dial the operator from any hotel phone. This goes directly to the hotel security department who will dispatch appropriate people to the scene.

STANDARDS POLICY To ensure that all AFLV Conferences continue to maintain a reputation for excellence and high standards, we have high expectations of appropriate behavior at each event. In an effort to minimize hotel security involvement, behavior standards will be monitored and enforced by the Conference Standards Team. It is expected that each conference participant reads, understands, and follows conference behavior standards as well as appropriate federal, state, and local laws.

AFLV expects that conference attendees respect the property and the rights of the hotel and its guests. In that spirit, be advised that alcoholic beverages are not

permitted in general hotel spaces and there will be no alcohol permitted in guest rooms. Alcohol is also not permitted at any conference event, including meals. Loud and disruptive music is also prohibited.

All federal, state, and local laws apply, as do your institutions policies and procedures. The legal drinking age in the state of Indiana is 21 and is strictly enforced.

Standards Process

Depending on the severity, first incidents may result in a warning. After one warning, individuals violating conduct expectations may be asked to leave the

conference and the hotel. AFLV reserves the right to send any individual or delegation home without any warning if the violation is deemed severe enough. University officials and inter/ national fraternities and sororities will be informed of the conduct and the individuals responsible. If any member of a council is asked to leave the hotel, that council may be suspended from attending future AFLV conferences. Additionally, if a university has repeated offenses while in attendance, its membership in the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values and eligibility to attend future conferences will be in jeopardy.

Keynote Speakers PHired Up

Arel Moodie

All Leadership is Social

Secrets to Running your Organization like a True Professional

Thursday | 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. | Grand Ballroom | @Phiredup

Friday | 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. | Grand Ballroom | @Arelmoodie

As technological connections increase, personal, human, face-to-face relationships can suffer. Yet, our ability to be more “social”, our ability to connect with others, will define our ability to lead. Social fraternities and sororities are perfectly designed and positioned to breed the world’s greatest “social” leaders. “Social Excellence” is the most important factor leading to success in life, business, and relationships. By embracing the social component of our fraternal identity rather than downplaying it, fraternities and sororities can move beyond relevance and become deeply significant to our host institutions, local community, and to the world. Your ability to lead will be greatly defined by your ability to be more social.

We join fraternities and sororities for many reasons. One of the big reasons is to learn how to become more professional. But, most new members are just thrown into the fire and expected to “make it work.” This program shows the secret strategies any organization can use to run the group more effectively and build the skill-sets necessary to succeed beyond the college environment. Students leave knowing exactly how to run their organization like a Fortune 500 company on shoestring budget; the biggest mistake most leaders make and how to avoid it; how to turn “dead weight” and “energy parasites” members into productive motivated members; how to throw events that people want to attend and get rave reviews; the secret psychology of great leaders that make people want to follow you; how to effectively and easily raise money for events. Sponsored by LaunchPoint, formerly Recruitment Boot Camp.

Mari Ann Callais

Buy In or GET OUT!

Ritual to Reality

Saturday | 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. | Grand Ballroom |@David_Stollman

Sunday | 9:00 a.m. - 10:15 a.m. | Grand Ballroom |@marianncallais

Held back by chapters who don’t “get it” & don’t care? Members who are there for the wrong reasons? Fighting? Cliques? Apathy? Poor appreciation for ritual, service, scholarship? What if good leaders could spend more time actually leading, rather than just cleaning up the problems and dealing with negative images made by those who don’t “get it?!” Well it’s time to tell them to… Buy In or Get Out! David will say what you wish you could. Let him confront them in his funny, interactive and moving style. His message will inspire those that care about the core values of fraternity and sorority life—fellowship, service, leadership and scholarship. It will touch on topics that range across all major issues facing today’s members. He will challenge your members to embrace the best and get rid of the rest.

Using music and storytelling, Mari Ann offers a truly unique keynote about values, ritual, and the responsibilities of being a lifetime fraternity or sorority member. For nearly a decade, she has empowered students with her fun, upbeat, and meaningful keynotes on fraternity and sorority values. Some question Mari Ann’s commitment to her belief that if we had meaningful conversations that included problem solving based on our values, rituals, respect, then our chapters members would be having healthier experiences. Mari Ann has taken a program that has engaged students for more than 10 years and kept it relevant. Today more than ever, her message is needed. Students will leave at least talking about something from the program. Maybe it will be a feeling of community, a sense of responsibility, or just humming a tune. Whatever the outcome, they will remember the “lady with the guitar.”

Featured Speakers Lori Hart Making Greek Great Friday | 10:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.M. | White river e | @Drlorihart Since our founders, fraternity and sorority life has always been about building friendships. When we stay true to that purpose, fraternity and sorority is a powerful force for good in our communities. When we stray from that purpose, we get in trouble. We make the papers. People get hurt. Our image in society becomes toxic. Making Greek Great is as simple as being true to our core purpose. It’s about our members committing to leadership guided by principles of good friendship—giving men and women a nurturing place to become their very best. In this empowering keynote, Lori asks young men and women these questions, challenging them to return their organizations to an ethical pursuit of the highest standards of friendship. Through group discussion and targeted stories, Lori helps students see the realities, the possibilities and a path forward. During Educational Block #2.

Jessica Ekstrom

James Robilotta More Action, Less Title: Empowering Our Organizations To Do More Friday | 10:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. | White River F | @jameTrobo Congratulations on your new position on your council or in your sorority or fraternity! Being a leader in your organization, however, is an action, not just a title. Empowerment is becoming a cliché in leadership but that’s because we are only talking the talk, not walking the walk. This session will breathe new life into the act of empowering members by challenging them to do better through a three-part strategy: challenging, motivating, and appreciating your brothers and sisters. Attendees will leave this session with a new strategic plan for how to positively impact members of their organizations by boosting ownership, reprioritizing recruitment efforts, and increasing retention. Note: attendees will also giggle. During Educational Block #2.

Justin Jones-Fosu

Inspire not Require

A Bigger Pie: How Collaboration Can Help Us Be Better & Bigger

Friday | 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. | White River E | @jlekstro

Friday | 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. | White River f | @Justinspires

Has community service become a requirement? Something we have to do to please those evaluating us? Within our chapters, we always have philanthropy and service requirements. But, are we really making the connection to the good work they are doing? In this keynote, Jess Ekstrom encourages students to “redefine philanthropy” from a requirement to a lifestyle. “We’re so worried about crossing philanthropy and service requirements off our list that we forget the purpose behind it.” As founder of Headbands of Hope, she has learned the power of service by changing thousands of children’s lives. When Jess walks into the hospital and sees a girl’s face light up, she understands what success means. She reminds us that making that connection is the key to finding the meaning in community service and social change. During Educational Block #3.

Would you rate the fraternities/sororities on your campus as being more competitive or collaborative? What about the councils? If your campus is like mine was, then the fraternities and sororities may get along on the surface, but behind closed doors (and sometimes not so behind) there are divisive rivalries and unhealthy competition. Sometimes people don’t even know why they don’t like a specific chapter. Your campus may not have embraced an appreciation for collaboration and how it can help ALL parties. Learn how to integrate effective collaboration, how to grow the percentage of Greeks on campus, and how to change a potentially toxic culture. You may be wondering, shouldn’t our fraternities/sororities have competition? They should: However, unhealthy competition should never erode the progress of effective collaboration. Have amazing fun learning how to build a bigger pie TOGETHER. Be inspired to fight for ALL Greeks. During Educational Block #3.

Featured Speakers Lawrence Ross The Divine Nine: Our History & Challenges Friday | 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. | White River E | @alpha1906 The Divine Nine: Our History & Challenge is a lecture presented by Lawrence Ross, author of The Divine Nine: The History of African American Fraternities and Sororities, the first book written on black Greek-lettered organizations. One of the most popular Greek lectures, Ross has appeared at over 500 colleges and universities. In the Divine Nine lecture, Ross both entertains and educates as he talks about the history of fraternities and sororities in general, and the evolution of African American fraternities and sororities specifically. He also focuses on the contemporary issues that BGLOs need to address, including student development, community service, and pledging and hazing. Humorous, thoughtful, and never dull, Lawrence Ross’ Divine Nine lecture is always a winner with both students and Greek life offices. During Educational Block #4.

Carlos Andrés Gómez Reimagining Modern Manhood Friday | 4:45 p.M. - 5:45 p.m. | White River E | @CarlosAGLive Masculinity is at a crisis point: widespread sexual assault, gun violence, hazing, and bullying have become unwelcome but all too visible incidents on college campuses across the country. Even in a society seemingly moving towards a more socially progressive norm, the state of modern manhood seems as stagnant as ever. Carlos Andrés Gómez wants to change this. With a dynamic speaking experience that incorporates spoken word, improv, and revealing personal stories, Gómez gives young men permission to be the civic leaders and powerful role models their campuses and our world truly need. Gómez will challenge fraternity men to rethink how they interact with women, deal with violence, handle fear, and express emotion. Called a “truth-telling visionary” and a “lyrical prophet,” Gómez’s words offer fraternity brothers a truly unique, inspiring, and accessible invitation for each of them to become the great men they were always destined to be. During Educational Block #5.

Sam Davidson What My Second Grade Girlfriend Taught Me About Leadership Friday | 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. | White River F | @samdavidson Back in elementary school, Sam Davidson learned a key lesson that applies to any fraternity or sorority leader: in order to be effective, you’ve got to be able to share your passion for change and success with others in a way that connects and resonates. Using high-energy and humorous stories, Davidson helps leaders formulate their personal leadership story so that it captivates and motivates your chapter or campus. With particular attention to how council and chapter leaders can improve recruitment, engage more deeply in philanthropy, and embody an organization’s core values, this keynote will have you laughing, thinking, and most importantly, changing the way you look to engage and lead your peers. During Educational Block #4.

TRACY MAXWELL #LML (Love My Life): How Our View of the World Changes Everything Friday | 4:45 P.m. - 5:45 p.m. | White River F | @TRACYMAX

Our view of the world, and perception of the events in our lives, distinguishes our experiences from those of everyone around us. Our perception is completely unique to us, and ultimately this view determines our happiness, peace of mind, success, and the quality of our relationships. Tracy Maxwell helps redirect the way students and professionals focus their perceptions. This thought-provoking program will give students steps to learn to love their lives with greater passion and contentment, which opens them up to less stress, better relationships, more meaningful work and a profound sense of purpose. Tracy stresses the importance of “asset-based thinking,” which means focusing on what you have, instead of what you are lacking. This enables us to look toward what is possible rather than the roadblocks or disappointments in any situation. During Educational Block #5.

IGNITE FRATERNITY

The Revolution for Courageous Leadership

Ignite Fraternity

Saturday | 10:45 A.m.- 11:45 a.m. | White River BCD | @ResponseAbility

Saturday | 10:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. | White River C/D

With “The Creed for Courageous Leadership” as the blueprint, we will explore the opportunity we all have to empower ourselves, our brothers and sisters, and our friends to continuously intervene in problem situations and make the difference we want to make. We all have a commitment to respond to bullying, hazing, drug/alcohol abuse, sexual violence, discrimination and everyday life issues. The question is, “Do our actions fulfill this commitment?” Using a blend of bystander intervention and leadership training, we will move away from the shame, regret and guilt we all experience when we are bystanders and move towards the creation of a whole new world where we are standing up, stepping in, and speaking out against inappropriate, unhealthy and abusive behaviors. We identify and assess the six strengths required to continuously demonstrate courageous leadership as a way of being and not simply a title to attain. During Educational Block #6.

The concept is simple. A group of conference attendees will present their Ignite Talks, 5-minute talks of 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds, to an audience of peers during the conference. Ignite Talks can address the audience on any aspect of fraternity—ritual, recruitment, life, ANYTHING—as long as they keep it to five minutes. Join us so you can see the Ignite experience in person! Preregistration is required to give an Ignite Talk; however, all attendees are welcomed and encouraged to watch (space permitting).

Go Hard or Go Home!

Alcohol, Parties and the Law

Saturday | 3:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. | White River E | @rickdaniels

Saturday | 3:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. | White River F | @CLLindsayiii

Greek Organizations often struggle as a result of lack of direction, ineffective recruitment strategies and lost leaders. Rick challenges fraternity and sorority members to step up and drive their organizations to greatness, keeping in mind the question: What will I think of my organization in 10-20 years? Rick encourages leaders to emerge and take power within their campus group while leaving them with the challenge of putting their devotion to work. During Educational Block #8.

C.L. Lindsay is the country’s foremost authority on Higher Education Law. He literally wrote the book on legal problems in higher eduction. The College Student’s Guide to the Law has become the definitive authority used by students, university counsel and nationwide as a textbook. What defines C.L. isn’t his knowledge. It’s his uncanny ability to make legal concepts not only understandable, but funny. In fact, the movie rights to his book were recently purchased by Steve Carell—something that’s unheard of for a non-fiction, legal reference. C.L.’s Alcohol, Parties and the Law lecture teaches students everything they need to know to make their party safe AND legal: the basics of (and penalties for) underage drinking violations including consumption, serving to minors, and (ahem) public urination; how to legally collect party donations, dealing with neighbors, social host liability, bystander intervention, tips for dealing with the police, and much more. During Educational Block #8.

During Educational Block #9.

Conversations about diversity are happening all over campus; are they happening in your chapter and council meetings? In this session, we will frame the diversity conversation through modern film featuring images of fraternity/ sorority life. You will be challenged to care about difference, discrimination, and social justice and their impact on the fraternal experience—recruitment, retention, campus reputation, and much more. This session will help students expand their relationship-building skills by becoming more culturally selfaware, finding common ground and harnessing the benefits of living and learning in community with others. During Educational Block #9.

In a humorous, yet challenging way, 14-Time National Speaker of the Year, David Coleman, The Dating Doctor, will help you navigate dating’s treacherous landscape as he addresses mutual consent, safe words, becoming an intervener, The ABC’s of Initial Interest, flirting versus sincere interest, the characteristics of healthy relationships, subtle signs that cheating may be taking place, surviving and thriving following a difficult breakup, seven traits we look for in others, common mistakes made during on -line dating, longdistance relationships, military relationships and more.

Attend the Advisors’ Town Hall to voice your opinions and talk about the issues affecting your community with fraternity/sorority advisors and headquarters professionals.

Much of what we do and believe is based on the conventional wisdom related to our work.   What we assume to be true and wise is often inaccurate, incomplete, and rooted in a cycle that repeats itself each year.  However, with a little effort, moxie and a willingness to prove ourselves wrong, we can challenge the conventional wisdom and change the trajectory of the fraternity/sorority world. This interactive workshop will provide a framework for exploring the cultural, political and historical realities of our work -- and for charting a new path forward.

Opening Session: All Leadership is Social Phired Up, @PhiredUp

7:00 P.M.- 8:30 A.M. | JW Grand Ballroom

As technological connections increase, personal, human, face-to-face relationships can suffer. Yet, our ability to be more “social”, our ability to connect with others, will define our ability to lead. Social fraternities and sororities are perfectly designed and positioned to breed the world’s greatest “social” leaders. “Social Excellence” is the most important factor leading to success in life, business, and relationships. By embracing the social component of our fraternal identity rather than downplaying it, fraternities and sororities can move beyond relevance and become deeply significant to our host institutions, local community, and to the world. Your ability to lead will be greatly defined by your ability to be more social.

Advancing Your Panhellenic

The Why, The How, and The Plan

The Intake Equation

Thursday, January 29 3:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M.|Room 309/310

Thursday, January 29 3:00-6:00 P.M.|Room 304/305

Have you always wanted to know more about the who, what, why or how, behind the National Panhellenic Conference? If so, join NPC as we dig deep--discussing a variety of topics from Unanimous Agreements and NPC policies to Panhellenic operations, including officer roles and responsibilities, to the true purpose of Panhellenic. NPC wants to work with and support you in advancing your Panhellenic in 2015!Â

Interfraternity Councils around the country often face a lack of purpose combined with a lack of support from the member organizations on campus. Many times the IFC is tasked with doing "something" to fix the "problem" on campus, but very little guidance is given to promote success. Throughout this pre-conference session, IFC leaders will learn the why, the how, and the plan for becoming a successful IFC. Driven by the IFC Creed, NIC Standards, and a Blueprint for change, IFC leaders will leave this session with a renewed understanding of their purpose, a thorough timeline for action, and increased knowledge of NIC/IFC Standards and operations. Ultimately, if the IFC wants to be a relevant leader in the fraternal movement, the IFC must make plans to change the current reality.

The Intake Equation brings you together with other leaders from culturally based greek letter organizations that hold intake to discuss the core challenges affecting your community. Through discussion and interactive activities, you will be challenged to examine your current practices and intake process. You will discuss how your organization’s brand does or does not align with your values and learn techniques to help your chapter develop a strong brand. This session will help you effectively bring in and retain good members while being true to the traditions and values of their groups. The Intake Equation will give you the strong foundation you need to return to campus to take action and build a meaningful legacy on campus. This pre con is geared towards NPHC and MGC greek organizations.

Ed Block 1, 8:45 - 9:45 p.m. Seriously, We Are All Here to Help You!

One Year to Make it Happen

Two past chapter consultants turned campus advisors talk about the importance of the partnership between you, your Headquarters and your campus advisors. Students will learn about how to use all the resources available to them to help them be successful both locally and nationally. David and Sarah will share some tricks and tips they have learned to help students manage being the intermediary between their campus and their headquarters.

You’ve got a new, energetic group of officers and big plans to dominate this year. But few years result in legendary leaps. Most only maintain the chatper’s status quo. How do you make sure that THIS year—your year—amazing things happen? How do you make this year the one where membership multiplies, events rock, finances flourish and you emerge a hero on the other side? In this transformational session, Pete illustrates practical approaches to catapult your chapter to the next level. Pete reveals proven strategies for students to inspire super engagement among members, promote meaty exchanges, and ensure members follow through on their commitments.

Yeah, But… Lessons in Social Justice, Ethics, and Making Decisions Room 204 | Program #002

“Yeah, but…” is the expression most of us find ourselves using when we know we did something wrong. Come find out why people’s actions may differ from what they really believe when they get put in sticky situations. This session will get you moving around and talking about the difficult situations we face everyday. Everyone has special circumstances or excuses they use to make exceptions. Don’t you? Join in this interactive activity that explores those disparities, why they exist, and how they affect the fraternity and sorority community. We’ll talk about things that at first appear black and white, but are often pretty gray and discuss why it is so important to understand them Jennifer Morales, CAMPUSPEAK, jmorale9@kennesaw.edu

How to Dress for Success, Interviewing 101 Room 205 | Program #003

Men’s Wearhouse How to Dress for Success, Interviewing 101 seminar covers the essentials of preparing for an interview, selecting appropriate interview apparel for men and women and avoiding common interview mistakes.

Fraternity leaders will learn how to host our seminar at their local chapters to bring our message to college campuses throughout the United States. Mike Sins, Men’s Wearhouse, mcs3@tmw.com Don Botill, Men’s Wearhouse

What now?! Thriving through an Unexpected Transition Room 206 | Program #004

What do you do when a council member suddenly resigns? What happens when you bring a new chapter to campus? How do you handle an unexpected change in your campus staff or chapter advisory board? In this session, you will hear some best practices (and horror stories) from people who have experienced all of these types of transitions first hand. Campus leaders will learn how to recognize periods of change as opportunities for growth and advancement. Through interactive discussions and engaging conversations, we will explore ways for all constituents to capitalize on the possibilities that arise during any type of change.

You’re the MILLENNIAL Generation: Be Proud Despite what you Hear! Room 209 | Program #007

Seasoned professionals and executives are currently saying, “here come the Millenials!” Millennials are the new generation of individuals born roughly between the early 80’s through early 2000. Also known as ‘Generation Y,’ ‘The Net Generation,’ the ‘Entitled Generation’ and even the ‘Trophy Generation,’ more is said negative than positive of the soon-to-be entering workforce population. However, regardless of the stereotypical categorization, millennials now constitute the majority of the professional workforce. Utilizing the advent of technology and purpose for their profession, Millennials will be one of the greatest generations ever. This session will outline the amazing contributions and characteristics of the Millennial generation and how the leadership skills and traits from our fraternal experiences should be articulated positively rather than negatively. Come learn more about Millennials in this session and what you need to know about what the workforce thinks of you soon entering it. Dr. Kevin Snyder, CAMPUSPEAK & Center for Creative Leadership, Kevin@KevinCSnyder.com

The Power of Habit

Room 308 | Program #008

Every organization and community has habits. Perhaps your organization plans the same philanthropy event each year, or you always partner with the same organization for events, or maybe your entire community can’t seem to start meetings on time. Most habits form without us even realizing it. During this session we will examine how habits play a role in our communities. We’ll learn strategies to help challenge and change habits and develop a clear action plan to change one of your organization or community habits. This session will give you the tools you need to spark meaningful changes within your organization. Kari Murphy, Ball State University, swift@campuspeak.com

The Five Dysfunctions of a Council—How to Combat Them and Build a Successful Team Room 311 | Program #009

Do you ever wonder why your execective board is filled with great leaders but you are not a stronger group? Leaders are always ready to hit the ground running and do so much in their short amount of time that it passes before they realize they’re just a collection of individuals instead of a unified team. Based on Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team this session focuses on helping participants understand that teamwork is the primary focus to any organization's success. Participants will leave with an understanding of the dysfunctions that stop the growth of a team and how to combat these issues, how to develop initiatives to build a strong team and finally how to maintain that positive culture over time.

Ed Block 1, 8:45 - 9:45 p.m. Healthy Conflict

A Conversation about Hazing

Do you ever feel as though you avoid conflict or confronting a situation because you are afraid of the reaction? All too often, we hold ourselves back from communicating with one another because we are too uncomfortable. However, disagreements, confrontations, and hard conversations are part of life for any student leader. Join us to learn how to stop being afraid and become more confident with communication. In this program, you will learn healthy confrontation skills you can apply with your friends, at your internships, and in your chapters.

Tracy has worked with students enough to know that hazing is a controversial subject, often ignored by the community until something tragic happens. Hazing is also spotlighted by a media culture looking for a quick fix and someone to blame. Tracy believes students have been unfairly scape-goated for a problem that dates back centuries. Today’s students didn’t invent this problem, but they do have the power to end it. This issue is a societal one perpetuated by a culture of disrespect and disconnection. While we hear most often about the physical impacts of hazing, the psychological ones are hidden, and can be longer lasting. Hazing will never be solved without the engagement of students in prevention.

Stop Apologizing! Let your Confidence Shine Room 314 | Program #012

As women, we have a natural tendency to apologize when an apology isn’t necessary, to push our ideas aside to give space to a louder voice, and to question our ability to lead when we don’t have all the experience requested. While society has placed many hurdles in front of us, we often place the highest hurdles on ourselves. This session will take an honest look at the challenges that stand in our way of being confident in who we are and what we bring to the table and instead dare us to be brave, stand tall, and let our leadership light shine. Michelle Marchand, Delta Upsilon International Fraternity, marchand@deltau.org Becky Soderholm, Alpha Xi Delta, bsoderholm@alphaxidelta.org

Relationships with the opposite sex… they are a part of our everyday life. They are challenging and they are fun!

Much of what we do and believe is based on the conventional wisdom related to our work.   What we assume to be true and wise is often inaccurate, incomplete and rooted in a cycle that repeats itself each year.  However, with a little effort, moxie and a willingness to prove ourselves wrong, we can challenge the conventional wisdom and change the trajectory of the fraternity/sorority world. This interactive workshop will provide a framework for exploring the cultural, political and historical realities of our work -- and for charting a new path forward.

9:00 A.M. - 10:30 A.M. | JW Grand Ballroom

We join fraternities and sororities for many reasons. One of the big reasons is to learn how to become more professional. But, most new members are just thrown into the fire and expected to “make it work.” This program shows the secret strategies any organization can use to run the group more effectively and build the skill-sets necessary to succeed beyond the college environment. Students leave knowing exactly how to run their organization like a Fortune 500 company on shoestring budget; the biggest mistake most leaders make and how to avoid it; how to turn “dead weight” and “energy parasites” members into productive motivated members; how to throw events that people want to attend and get rave reviews; the secret psychology of great leaders that make people want to follow you; how to effectively and easily raise money for events.

Ed Block 2, 10:45 - 11:45 a.m. Less Frat. More Fraternity: An Outsider’s view on what Greek is all About Room 206 | Program #019

Epic parties! Booze everywhere! All the sex you can handle! Zac Efron lighting fireworks in the front yard! According to popular media, many unaffiliated undergrads, and even a selection of your own members, these are what you can (and should) expect when you “Go Greek.” In this program, you will get the opportunity to view the Fraternity and Sorority Life through the lens of the nonaffiliated member. Spoiler alert: they’re talking smack about you not living up to your values. But before you get angry, does what they say hold a nugget of truth? Are we just a little too “frat?” Bryant Corkins, Iowa State University, bcorkins@iastate.edu

Tap Dancing Without Shoes: The History of Stepping and the Impact on Greek Life and Popular Culture Room 208 | Program #020

Tap Dancing Without Shoes chronicles the history of the art form known as “stepping” and its impact on the Greek community and popular culture. Inspired by the recently published book, this presentation covers topics such as stepping’s connection to BGLO pledging, race, and significant contributions from the Latino/Latina Greek movement. Also included are interviews with George “P Funk” Clinton (writer and producer of the popular song “Atomic Dog,”) The 2010 Sprite Step Off champions (Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority), and various Greek chapters and community organizations around the country. Finally, this presentation challenges those who are involved to take stepping beyond the realm of entertainment and harness its ability to unify communities and inspire America’s youth.

Empowering Sisterhood Room 209 | Program #021

Does your sorority foster a supportive authentic sisterhood? Are you personally encouraging your sisters to reach their highest potential? Are you making the most of your sorority relationships? Becoming an empowered young woman today can be difficult given the myriad of myths that tell women they are not enough. Cultural messages often encourage females to work against one another instead of with one another. This program explores, debunks, and rewrites the messages that hold sisters back. During this interactive presentation, we will take on myths such as, “being meek and modest is a part of femininity.” After exploring the limitations of these beliefs, we will replace harmful myths with empowering messages and daily organizational practices. This program challenges you to create a sisterhood that fosters strength, confidence, and authentic connections! Erin Foley, CAMPUSPEAK, ErinFoley1126@gmail.com

Overcoming Apathy through Dynamic Leadership Development: A Guide for Fraternity/ Sorority Leaders Room 301 | Program #022

Students develop their intellectual, interpersonal, social skills and identity through their experiences as members in organizations. Involvement in these organizations immerse students in opportunities to navigate the complexities of their surroundings, advance their world view and transform them into exceptional members of a greater global community. Conversely, involvement in fraternities and sororities can provide opportunities for burnout and apathy among members, leaders, and advisors. This presentation will highlight the importance of developing dynamic student leaders to overcome apathy. We live in a time where students are pulled in many directions and overload themselves with academics and extracurricular activities, burnout and apathy can derail even the best leader’s attempts to keep an organization’s members motivated and engaged.

This session will encourage you to think outside of the box and make a difference in the Indianapolis community.

A Time for Leadership: How to Master your Role as a new Governing Council Leader Room 314 | Program #027

You already know how to be a leader in your chapter, but how do you come together with other students to effectively lead your fraternity or sorority community? Being elected to an executive board for a governing council is often an unfamiliar journey, working with student leaders you may or may not know. We are here to provide you with the tools needed to be a successful governing council leader. We will address establishing trust, different leadership styles, communication and accountability.

Ed Block 2, 10:45 - 11:45 a.m. Making Meetings Matter Room 205 | Program #028

Or maybe you’ve just got a nagging feeling that your meetings have some extra hidden potential. This session reveals practical, how-to tips spanning the whole meeting process. Students will leave with a host of alternative ideas for traditional meetings and a set of tools to better think collaboratively as a group. Pete Mockaitis, CAMPUSPEAK, Pete@PeteMockaitis.com

The Seven Curses of Top-Third Student Leaders Room 101/102 | Program #029

As a top-third student leader, you are working harder than everyone else. The organization couldn’t exist without your energy, your enthusiasm, and your commitment. So, then why do you so often feel unappreciated, unsupported, and unable to keep all the balls in the air? The fact is that you are probably falling into the most common traps that high achieving student leaders have been facing for generations. In this session, we will discuss the seven curses, and you will get three specific ideas for dealing with each. That’s 21 solid ideas for getting a grip, avoiding burnout, and becoming a smarter and more effective leader on your campus. T.J. Sullivan, IntentionalTJS Inc., sullivan@intentionalTJS.com

The Tribe Has Spoken: Unanimous Agreements 101 ICC Room 126 | Program #030

Unanimous Agreements are named as such because they are considered so basic to ethical and harmonious intersorority life that they are binding on every NPC member organization. With that in mind, can you say that your campus implements and follows every Unanimous Agreement completely? We know that it’s difficult, so if you answered no, this session is for you! Come learn why the Unanimous Agreements exist and how you can teach your Panhellenic chapter members to implement and enforce them appropriately. Jenny Greyerbiehl, National Panhellenic Conference, jenny@npcwomen.org

Before the Breakdown: How to Approach Members about Mental Health Room 304/305 | Program #031

Many times after a tragedy occurs brothers, sisters and friends come forward to say they saw signs that something was wrong, but they didn’t know what to do. It’s vital for chapters to learn the steps to take in critical situations, to reach people before they break down. Sixty-seven percent of college students report that they first disclose their emotions to friends, yet two-thirds of students don’t seek professional help. This means brothers and sisters are on the front lines of mental health. Participants will learn how to recognize warning signs, effective ways to approach a friend who is experiencing a mental health breakdown and what to do when someone is suicidal. Ross Szabo, Human Power Project, ross.szabo@gmail.com

Are You My Mentor? Creating Meaningful Mentoring Relationships through the Fraternal Values Society Room 302/303 | Program #033

The topic of mentoring is often discussed but not always practiced to its full potential. Whether across big brother/sister programs or happening between members and alumni, how can we be sure that successful mentoring is taking place in our organizations. Better yet, what does it mean to measure mentoring when creating meaningful relationship? Throughout this session, you will learn the essential components of a mentoring relationship, how to make your mentoring culture renewable, and how to guide the impact of mentoring through the Fraternal Values Society. Gone are the days when we can just call someone our mentor. If mentoring is to succeed, we need consistency and congruence. We all know mentoring matters. But so does how we are mentoring. Let’s make mentoring significant together. Tim Mousseau, CAMPUSPEAK/LaunchPoint Solutions, mousseau@campuspeak.com

What Does it Mean to be a Real Black Man or Woman? Hazing in the Greek Community ICC Room 127 | Program #035

Through student testimonials, videos, and a social-historical investigation participants will examine the reasons why NPHC organizations participate in hazing activities and what prevents our organizations and members from standing up to hazing. Participants will discuss the values that we teach during the membership intake process and how these values align with or contradict the values of our organizations and our members. Additionally, participants will deconstruct the ideas of black masculinity and femininity and how hazing contributes to the continued disempowerment of black men and women in our society.

NPHC... Where Grades go to Die Room 203/204 | Program #036

All NPHC organizations quote “high scholastics” as a requirement for membership into their respective organizations. However, majority NPHC’s at predominantly white institutions have a much lower grade point average than their Greek peers. This session is geared toward NPHC students to discuss the issue of poor academic performance within the NPHC community. Whether the problem is cause by lack of support on college campuses, coming from underprivileged educational backgrounds, having misguided priorities, poor membership selection, or failing grades after intake. Attendees will engage in a dialogue about the state of their specific communities, exchange ideas about what has/hasn’t worked at their institutions, and brainstorm ideas for how to improve. This workshop is constructed to breathe new life into NPHC chapters versus attending another NPHC academic funeral.

21 Unorthodox ways to Evaluate a Chapter White River A | Program #040

We know. We get it. Your chapter is “excellent.” There are plaques, trophies, banners, and certificates to prove it. But are there other ways to evaluate a chapter? Indeed there are and we will review 21 of those unorthodox ways. The voicemail message of the chapter president...whether members are wearing sunglasses in the composite photos...behavior at campus, regional and national events...the way people sit at meetings...are just a few examples. Come to this session prepared to take a very different look at your chapter. David Westol, Limberlost Consulting, Inc., David.Westol@gmail.com

Circle of Sisterhood: Sorority women removing Barriers to Education for girls around the World

The Narcissist in your Chapter Room 103/104 | Program #046

What if the root of our risk management and behavior problems in fraternities and sororities is simply our propensity for recruiting narcissists? They come in the door exhibiting many of the qualities we value most – self-confidence, social dominance, and charm – and then spend the next four years hurting us with the downsides of narcissism: lack of empathy, lack of impulse control, and lack of remorse for their behaviors. In this session, we will discuss the basics of narcissism and then use the remainder of the time discussing how we can best respond. Is there a way to spot narcissism during recruitment? How does it manifest differently in college men and women? And most importantly, what do we do with the narcissists we already have? T.J. Sullivan, IntentionalTJS Inc., sullivan@intentionalTJS.com Jessica Gendron Williams, Phired Up Productions, jessica@phiredup.com

Authentic Strength vs. Artificial Strength Room 209 | Program #047

As men, we are programmed from the world around us that we should be strong. What is important, however, is being able to be very clear on what real strength is. We will discuss how distinguishing between authentic strength and artificial strength can dramatically help you as a person and as a leader. Certain attitudes about strength can lead to dangerous alcohol abuse, high-risk hazing and sexual assault, among other issues, while other attitudes about strength lead to the prevention of harm and personal growth. We will discuss what it would really mean to live by three critical strengths of composure, assertiveness and keepership, and what it would take to help create a culture of authentic strength in your chapter and community.

Branding and your Market

Room 309/310 | Program #048

“GO GREEK” is NOT a Marketing Strategy Room 311 | Program #050

“Go Greek” is not a marketing strategy. It’s begging. It’s shouting. It’s demanding. It’s selfish. What would the world’s greatest marketers teach fraternities and sororities about inspiring others to join us? The fraternity/sorority industry has existed for over 200 years. Yet it enjoys less than a 10 percent market share of 4-year college students. The industry lacks a professional data-driven marketing strategy to sell its value to prospective members. Great marketing minds know how to solve that. They believe that real human connection is at the center of all great marketing work. The presenter of this session owns the only marketing company that is 100 percent focused on growing Greek Life. Come learn lessons from the greatest marketing minds directly applied to fraternity and sorority. Matt Mattson, Innova, Matt@InnovaGreek.com

Telling your Story through Social Media Room 313 | Program #051

As humans, we naturally crave stories to make sense of the world around us and empathize with others. It’s time to start telling the powerful stories of your fantastic chapter or council. Skip the post-lunch story time you loved in kindergarten and join us to start crafting a narrative for your organization.

Can I see you in my Office? Room 314 | Program #052

Fraternity and sorority leaders have many resources available through chapter advisors, inter/national organization staff and volunteers, and on-campus resources. One of these resources could be developing a relationship with the fraternity and sorority professional. Developing open lines of communication and an effective working relationship with the fraternity and sorority advisor can often assist chapter and council leaders in advancing new initiatives and creating new opportunities. This session will provide participants information on how to develop a strong working relationship with your campus fraternity and sorority advisor.

Hey NPHC, check your Leadership Ego Room 203/204 | Program #053

Hey Superwoman, take off your cape. Batman, take off your mask. Hey NPHC leaders, put away your ego. In this session, students will be asked to think about leadership differently by considering this concept: authentic leadership is about using your experiences, your shortcomings and lessons learned to make yourself appear more human to your brothers and sisters. In this manner, you earn far more respect and admiration than you would from trying to be a leader who is a flawless hero. In turn, the bonds you form in your fraternities and sororities are tighter and the greater the influence you can have on one another.

Drowning in the Beauty Battle: Lets get real about how to be Healthy, Happy Sisters Room 208 | Program #054

How loud is your internal critic? Love yourself? Great idea, but let's get real. Young women on college campuses across the country are drowning in beauty pressures to be thin, popular, and beautiful. You are not alone. Feelings of insecurity are difficult to avoid. This issue is often even more prevalent for sorority women who are surrounded by the unintentional comparison game. It’s more than a superficial cliché, it’s detrimental to how you feel, how you excel and your overall well-being. Sororities are the perfect opportunity to get clear and get real about building self-esteem. We cannot ask you to swim in these high-pressure beauty waters without the tools to stay afloat. This presentation helps you get clear about these pressures, and most important, provides you with tools for creating healthy and supportive habits for you and your sisters.

(Re)Defining the Fraternity Man Room 101/102 | Program #055

Fraternities are built on a foundation of brotherhood. However, how we display this brotherhood to the outside world is often very different from what our founders would hope. Our members often get caught up in in “proving” their manhood or loyalty through hyper-masculine behaviors through high-risk drinking and the objectification of women. Most of these are actions that not only misrepresent what fraternities are about, but poor standard or expectation of our brothers. While our organizations are composed of diverse groups of men, we often do not explore the complexity of the male identity. This session will explore ways in which fraternities can shed stereotypes caused by hypermasculine ideals.

How to be a ROCKSTAR Communicator! Room 301 | Program #056

Most people simply don't communicate effectively! However, our success in both fraternal organizations/councils and in the 'professional world' relies on our ability as leaders to communicate well. The question is, therefore, how do WE maximize our communication abilities and, more importantly, how do we interact with those who do not communicate well! In this interactive session, you'll experience an award-winning activity that will prepare you to deal with various communication styles. You'll even be able to take this activity back to your chapters, councils, and other campus organizations. Not only will you leave this presentation with a greater understanding of how to be an effective, ROCKSTAR communicator, but you will also learn new techniques to demonstrate charisma and outstanding presentation skills!

You can’t be kind of Pregnant White River I/J | Program #057

Kristen Hadeed, a young entrepreneur who employs more than 500 people, believes that identifying values and committing to them is the most important part of the leadership equation. You know that your organization has values, but are you really committed to them? You either 100% commit to them, or you don’t. When it comes to values there is no in-between. You can’t be “kind of pregnant.” You should be working to live up to these values every day and should demand that others do the same. In this session Kristen challenges your organization to step it up. You aren’t a leader until you commit 100% to your values and your chapter isn’t a leading one until it does the same. Kristen Hadeed, CAMPUSPEAK, kristen@studentmaid.com


Ed Block 3, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Decision Making: Help I don’t Know what to Do! Room 302/303 | Program #058

This session will explore how to make those tough choices when you have “right v. right” decisions to make in your leadership roles. We’ll discuss some methods to evaluate, apply, and decide outcomes of both some sample scenarios and your examples. Lorin Phillips, CAMPUSPEAK, aed.trisigma@gmail.com

Recruitment: Just the Tip of the Panhellenic Iceberg ICC Room 125 | Program #059

Recruitment is typically what people think of when they think of college Panhellenics; but recruitment is in fact just one function of a college Panhellenic that is doing “Panhellenic” well! Join us for an interactive session to learn about the purpose of a college Panhellenic and how that purpose should shape all the actions and activities your Panhellenic participates in on your campus.

37 Ways to Detect Hazing

ICC Room 126 | Program #060

Hazing is secret, right? Hazing is practiced under the cover of darkness. No one ever knows what is happening. I mean, if you’re going to commit a misdemeanor (or a felony) you aren’t going to do that in front of everybody on campus, right? Wrong. Hazing is clearly visible in dozens of ways. It is hiding in plain sight. And sometimes the hazers themselves want you to know that they are hazing. Let Michael Ayalon and Dave Westol outline 37 ways to detect hazing ranging from backpacks to spiels to carrying books in a certain way to interaction between members and pledges. Trust us: it isn’t difficult to detect hazing. David Westol, Limberlost Consulting, Inc., David.Westol@gmail.com Michael Ayalon, Sigma Pi Fraternity, mayalon@sigmapi.org

Culture, Culture, Culture: The Thing that Matters in Council Success ICC Room 127 | Program #061

Countless tools and resources exist that are meant to help your council become high performing and reach the pinnacle of success. The problem is these tools won’t work if your council is not part of the right organizational culture. In the battle for council excellence, your community’s culture is the first issue that should be addressed. With so many skilled council leaders wanting to do the right thing, how can we get to a place where these desires are accomplished? Rewriting an organization culture is no small feat, but we have a system that will help this work. With the right people and right drive, we know that you can create cultures where change is inevitable and growth will happen.

Redefining Brotherhood

White River G/H | Program #065

Brotherhood can be thought of as the currency of fraternity — new members are buying it, and chapters are selling it. But what is it? How do fraternity members define brotherhood? Does that definition impact other aspects of the fraternity experience? Most importantly, can fraternity members rethink brotherhood in a way that will add value and relevance to the fraternity experience? We think so. Redefining Brotherhood is an interactive workshop based on the awardwinning research of the presenters and will help fraternity members enrich their experience by understanding the true nature of the fraternal bonds of brotherhood. Participants will learn to define brotherhood, complete a selfassessment measuring their attitudes about brotherhood, learn about the ways that their attitude about brotherhood influences their fraternity experience, and will be equipped to improve the brotherhood in their chapters.

Product Knowledge: Talking about Sorority in a Compelling Way White River A | Program #066

Tell me about your sorority. 'How would your members respond?' Talking about our organizations, the stuff we do, and the commitments and expectations of membership are an important part of getting women to join our sororities. In this session from the recruitment experts at Phired Up, participants will learn to prepare their sorority members with compelling, emotional, and inspirational methods of communicating the value and values of their organization to potential members. Members need confidence and poise when they talk about their organization, and more than that, they need to emotionally connect with potential members and help those potential members imagine themselves as part of the chapter. Further, members need to know how to handle the most common concerns PNMs have about joining. There are proven ways to do this effectively, and this session will reveal those secrets.

ED BLOCK 4, 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Moving Scholarship Programs from Boring to Beneficial Room 208 | Program #067

Across the country, we have chapters and communities struggling with GPA yet what are our limited answers; study tables, library hours, grade report forms? We come to college for an education but most times how we emphasize this causes yawns, not inspiration. If we want to become our community’s best academic organizations, we need scholarship programs that attract our members’ interest while catering to their unique needs as individual learners. Designing the perfect scholarship program requires time, flexibility and a hint of creativity. Moving chapter-wide learning from passive to active is easy with the right tools. Come and learn the steps to take in cultivating a culture of scholarship, how we can engage all our members, and the importance of learning styles into chapterwide academics.

These programs are perfect tools to illustrate leadership in action and how understanding diversity drives not only how we feel about ourselves, but how we interact with members of the groups we lead. Student Leaders will not only view selected clips from these shows, but will understand how the underlying subliminal messages in these programs are driving behavior in our culture. Everyone will leave with new, educated visions of how to not only interpret what they are watching on TV, but how to utilize the ideas to creatively inspire others.

Being a Strong Leader in a Struggling Sorority Room 312 | Program #070

I don’t like when people tell me that I’m the best sister in my organization. I don’t like being the spokeswoman for my chapter, either. How do you think I feel when you tell me that other chapters of my sorority are “hot,” and we are an outlier? But what do you do when you’re the strongest leader in the group? This presentation addresses the issue of popularity in women’s fraternities and sororities. How do you live your values when you’re known as the single “hot” sister? How do you keep a smile when your organization never meets quota in recruitment? More importantly, how do you have the best collegiate experience while balancing all of this at once?

Ed Block 4, 3:30 -4:30 p.m. Under the Influence... of Stress

Making Sense of Mental Health

Life is stressful! Greek life offers many rewards but can also be stressful! You must find balance... but you worry. Students tend to worry about grades, relationships, jobs, money and their future in general. Greek life professionals worry about these students as well as the stressors in their own lives—the economy, budgets, time management, character-development and work relationships to name a few. This discussion deals with stress and the physical and mental problems caused by an excessively stressful life. Stress is defined and its mental and physical manifestations analyzed. A stress test is given so you can determine your current stress level. This test is followed with twenty meaningful and fun ways to de-stress from your distress.

Mental health challenges have quickly become one of the largest issues facing fraternities and sororities. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, lack of sleep and substance abuse are impacting members in all chapters. We care about this issue, but aren’t sure how to address this topic. Fraternities and sororities can be the best place to provide support to the people who need it the most. This session will help you better understand all of the challenges members are experiencing. Ross’s humorous and honest approach leads to an interactive conversation about the reasons students don’t seek help, steps to develop effective coping mechanisms and what you can do to make a difference in your chapter.

Redefining Sisterhood

White River G/H | Program #077

Sisterhood is a term that gets thrown around a lot. Phrases like “we have the best sisterhood” or “our sisterhood is so amazing” can often be overheard during recruitment conversations, but have we ever stopped to think about what sisterhood is really all about? This session will explore some exciting new research, conducted by the presenters, related to how women define and conceptualize sisterhood, and how that definition impacts other areas of the sorority experience. Participants will have an opportunity to complete the Sisterhood Questionnaire and better understand how their own attitudes about sisterhood influence their experience, and how sisterhood can be improved at the chapter level.

Mainstream My @##!: Developing a Culture of Empowerment for Members of Culturally-Based Groups Room 302/303 | Program #078

Members of culturally-based fraternities and sororities oftentimes use the term “mainstream” to describe the historically White fraternities and sororities, without considering the implications of the word. This session is designed to help participants understand this misused word and how culturally-based fraternities and sororities fit within the context of the fraternity/sorority movement. It is important that both students and campus-based professionals understand how to help members of culturally-based organizations move beyond the use of this word in order to help them feel more connected to their institutions.

Come learn about how Bring-Your-Own-Beverage events – BYOB for short – could be the answer to these questions. Participants will take part in a “perfect” BYOB event, observing multiple strategies for effectively implementing these events in accordance with FIPG guidelines. Participants will not only learn about the why’s and how’s associated with BYOB procedures, but will also leave with tools for educating and coaching peers through the implementation of these procedures within their fraternity and sorority community.

Sorostitute, Frat Mattress, and other ways we Slut Shame Sorority Women Room 313 | Program #082

What is a slut? Or more importantly, who is a slut? In a world where TSM has managed to permeate even the best of our organizations, slut shaming has taken a new and bigger role in how we control and chastise women based on their perceived sexual experiences. Slut shaming is not only problematic because it punishes women for acting upon, exploring and articulating their sexual desires, but it also continues to perpetuate the current rape culture we find our society attempting to navigate. This program will evaluate the role slut shaming plays in our community and provide techniques to challenge and end this practice of shaming and blaming women for their sexuality.

Help! My Advisor isn’t Affiliated! Best Practices for Leaders in MGC Room 314 | Program #083

Multicultural Greek Councils are often advised by professionals who are not affiliated with an MGC group. Yet it is integral to the health of the council to have an advisor that understands the rich cultural history of each chapter, and the expectations of MGC from an administrative perspective. This workshop will provide student leaders with concrete steps to take in successfully working with advisors of multicultural greek councils. Leaders will walk away with resources on defining expectations and tips to effectively serve as a liaison between advisors and their council.

Fraternities and sororities have existed for HUNDREDS of years, yet there is still so much we don’t know about a) Why do people join or not join? b) How do we get the best people to join? and c) How do we keep the best people in? The research division of Phired Up Productions, led by Dr. Colleen Coffey-Melchiorre has been conducting intensive research over the last 3 years with chapters, inter/national organizations, and campuses in an attempt to learn real answers to those three important questions. Now you have the opportunity to learn the results and how they can change the way you lead your fraternal experience! Jessica Gendron Williams, Phired Up Productions, Jessica@PhiredUp.com

Ed Block 5, 4:45 - 5:45 p.m. The Coaches Philosophy—“How to make your Organization into a Dynasty”

AAGLOs: Bridging the Gap Between Student Affairs Professionals’ Understanding and AAGLOs’ Reality

Do you want to be the leader of a change agent on your campus? Do you want to look back on your time in your organization and see the long lasting effects of your work? Based on core principles gathered from research on some of the best NCAA and NFL coaches this session will show you how to build the system within your organization that can help you to attain higher goals. Attendees of this session will learn how to mirror the steps coaches took to build sustaining organizations and adapt them to your fraternity or sorority community. Participants will gain the ability to motivate members, create a standard for their organization and build a chapter/council designed for success.

Why are my Asian American Greek Letter Organizations (AAGLOs) struggling with their academic and service requirements? Why isn’t there any alumni or national support for my AAGLOs? Why won’t my AAGLOs talk to me? Why are their national websites so terrible?! If you have ever asked yourself one of these questions, this session is for you! In the past several years, Asian American Greek letter organizations (AAGLOs) have expanded rapidly the nation and most student affairs professionals have been challenged with how to effectively engage, advise, and develop students that are in AAGLOs. In this session, presenters will share their different perspectives based on their organization, experience, and identity development through membership within an AAGLO. Come to this presentation to improve your cultural competency and how to work to improve the experiences of students whom are members of AAGLOs.

Strategies for Academic Success and Character Development Room 308 | Program #092

Are your members meeting the academic expectations of your organization? With the goal of helping student make the best choices possible for their academic, personal, and professional future, T. Leon Williams outline four main areas that new members need to nurture. These include relationships, specifically with other students, faculty, and alumni, which are the building blocks of a strong support network for obstacles that are bound to surface along the way; academic preparation, which often comes as a shock to those just coming out of high school; reflection, both academic and social, which encourages students to track their individual progress; and transformational knowledge, which is based upon students’ own unique experiences. T. Leon Williams, CAMPUSPEAK, leoncharacter.edu@gmail.com

Let’s be Fierce!

Room 311 | Program #093

A confrontation or accountability conversation can be a little intimidating but not if you get fierce! We are “fierce” when we talk from a place of values and understand what makes difficult conversation difficult. When we are aware of some common pitfalls in difficult conversations, we can better navigate our conversations and have more desired outcomes. If you have ever had a good conversation go south quick...this program might be for you. Lorin Phillips, CAMPUSPEAK, aed.trisigma@gmail.com

My Race is not my Ethnicity is not my Affiliation Room 312 | Program #094

Join us for a discussion about the relationship between ethnicity and race and how those factors can affect the experience of joining a fraternity or sorority in college. We’ll challenge stereotypes about which students join which organizations. This program will help students from diverse and multicultural backgrounds learn more about their social and ethnic identities and advocate for themselves with pride.

#GREEKSlikeus; LGBTQ Greeks Only Room 313 | Program #095

The session will be a closed session only for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer identifying participants of AFLV Central.

Servant Leadership

Room 206 | Program #097

In fraternity and sorority life, we talk a lot about serving our local community. Have you ever considered how being a leader in your organization is like serving your members? Join us in this session to discover servant leadership theory and how it can make a difference in your organization. You’ll assess if your members need a style that emphasizes the action of serving the members before anything else and what actions you can take to be a servant leader. Leave the session with an action plan that reflects on your values, strengths and aspirations as a servant leader.

Quiet the WORRY Beast: Dealing with Nagging, Stressful Thoughts Room 208 | Program #098

How many times have you crawled into bed to get a good night’s sleep only to find that you can’t shut down your brain? Thoughts like, “I don’t have enough time to balance my schoolwork with my fraternity/sorority position” or “ I need to prepare better for graduation” nag at you incessantly. By this point in your college career, you have been told time and again to deal with daily stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep. While this is all useful information, it often misses one of the most prevalent sources of stress for active student leaders, WORRISOME THOUGHTS! This program addresses the power of student’s tireless worry in creating physical and emotional stress. Drawing on three practical steps, students learn how to identify, rewrite and shift disempowering worry. Erin Foley, CAMPUSPEAK, ErinFoley1126@gmail.com

It Started with a Whiteboard (and Free Pizza) Room 209 | Program #099

Fall recruitment planning started with a whiteboard and pizza on a cold day in January. Panhellenic, seeking to model the way with their own values based practices, discussed every detail from eliminating skits to limiting the fruit infused water. Over the next eight months the recruitment team made intentional adjustments to help streamline and focus the recruitment process for the 1,100 anticipated participants. Come prepared to explore how purposeful change can make for a more productive, fulfilling, and believe it or not, a less stressful recruitment.

Ed Block 5, 4:45 - 5:45 p.m. Discovering your True Digital Identity

Creating The UNSTOPPABLE Leader!

When you Google your name, what do you find? Do your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts accurately portray the real you? With so many social media platforms to keep up with, we rarely take the time to reflect on our own digital identity. Join us in a conversation on Digital Identity and Digital Leadership. You will be challenged to explore your own digital identity and ultimately create a personal digital leadership pledge. You may never look at social media the same way again.

This life changing, inspirational, motivational, dynamic, REAL, open, honest, provocative, comedic, interactive and thought provoking workshop takes you “back to basics” while developing/nurturing the necessary skills needed to improve yourself, your organizations and the communities you serve. This workshop offers a fast-paced, positive learning environment while touching on numerous topics of interest: leadership, defining manhood/womanhood, greatness, unity, focus, race-cultural pride, relationships, expectations, courage, creativity and much, much more.... It asks the difficult questions that require a shifting of our thoughts and actions!

Steve Birdine, Affirmations In Action, sbirdine1@aol.com

Providing Perspective—Inspiration Beyond the Blur

There is great power in brothers and sisters looking out for each other and others who need help, but certain factors hold people back from doing what they could. Whether it is addressing the mistreatment of younger members, taking action to prevent a sexual assault, helping a friend in a bad relationship, or keeping a member on track academically, there are core concepts that can help you better understand what you can do to make a difference. We will have an open discussion and get real about common situations, the challenges of knowing how to handle them, and what options are effective and realistic. And you will walk away with a key practice to implement in new member education to help build a culture of keepership.

Aaron Boe, Aaron Boe Productions, aaron@aaronboe.com

As a 19-year-old sophomore at San Diego State University, Jeremy went legally blind in a matter of 2 months due to a rare genetic disorder he didn’t know he had. Rather than dwelling on what happened to him, Jeremy focused on what he could still do and at age 20 he won the 2010 World Blind Golf Championships. Jeremy’s inspirational story engages the audience, demonstrating that in life we all face tough times, in school, with our organization, we’re all going to face these challenges, but it’s how we approach these challenges in life that determines our happiness.

You’re not one of Us... Building Relationships with your Campus Advisor

Recruitment Counselor Training: Preparing for the Worst, Expecting the Best!

When planning for your chapter’s future, having a good relationship with your campus fraternity and sorority life advisor is key. Low membership numbers of many NPHC and MGC chapters usually result in those chapters needing a lot of support — providing a perfect platform for students to gain knowledge and resources with personal relationship-building. This session is geared toward NPHC and MGC students to encourage interaction between chapters and campus advisors, discuss relationship-building techniques, and help students build a foundation for success on campus. This session will also address the issue of poor relationships between NPHC/MGC students and campus advisors who may not be members of those organizations, and how to develop a bond around fraternity and sorority life that transcends council affiliations.

The training a recruitment counselor receives sets the stage for the experience a potential new member (PNM) has while participating in Panhellenic recruitment. A good training can create an extraordinarily positive experience for a PNM and keep her excited and enthusiastic for the duration of recruitment; while a bad training can provide the opposite experience for a PNM. Come to this session to learn helpful tips and tricks to training the best group of recruitment counselors your campus has ever seen in action!

Resilient Leadership—The Secret to Overcoming Challenges Room 203/204 | Program #103

At some point in every leader’s journey, he or she will have to deal with haters, doubters, pressure, enormous challenges, fear, depression, uncertainty, and failure. Although each of these different obstacles poses unique threats to the success of every leader, one of the main reasons that leaders such as Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Thomas Edison, Susan B. Anthony, and Walt Disney have been able to overcome these different circumstances is because they were all resilient. In this energetic, powerful, inspiring, and lifechanging leadership program, Joshua provides leaders with a clear and concise working definition of resilient leadership, and he also provides emerging and seasoned leaders with practical and applicable leadership strategies that will help them effectively adapt, persevere, and overcome some of these negative circumstances, challenges, and situations that every leader will be required to face in his or her leadership journey.

Miss Represented: Images of Sorority Women in the Movies ICC Room 127 | Program #107

According to the movies, sorority women are ditzy, promiscuous, and usually drunk. These stereotypes are nothing new but they often shape how the average person sees sorority women. How can we prove them wrong? Join us as we dissect these stereotypes to work towards a culture where sorority women are represented as the strong and independent leaders they are.

#HowToBeLessAwkward

ICC Room 128 | Program #108

Great communicators are charismatic and believable. Poor communicators are awkward and forgettable. In this program, former television personality (NBC, BET, Nickelodeon, E!) Antonio Neves stops poor communication in its tracks. Communicating with confidence can propel your college experience, career and life in unimaginable ways. It will make you a better leader, it will help you form deeper relationships and it will help you gain confidence in yourself. If your chapter or organization believes in you, you can better recruit and spread your message. If fellow students believe in you, you can spark social change. If employers believe you, they will hire you. And if you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Antonio Neves, CAMPUSPEAK, antonio@antonioneves.net

Ed Block 5, 4:45 - 5:45 p.m. RBC: Recruitment/Intake Skills Training

Respect this: Safer, Saner Sex in College

Ever heard the phrase, "from the outside looking in you can’t understand; from the inside looking out you can’t explain?" We can’t afford not to explain it! If we want high quality students to join our organizations, we have to communicate how our organization will benefit them! This train-the-trainer program will teach you to teach your members basic conversations skills from verbal and non-verbal cues, to asking engaging questions, and handling common objections to membership.

With unfiltered honesty and humor, Cindy addresses how the culture can skew sexual expectations for men and women through media, music, gaming and internet porn. She uses anecdotes and her social research to demystify sex, relationships, social media, alcohol use and hooking up. Cindy highlights the importance of gathering a Healthy Crew of trusted friends and role models as well as tuning to one’s Inner Compass to help navigate the overwhelming choices as a college student.

All In... Motivating & Leading your Chapter in the Face of Great Pressure White River I/J | Program #110

Do you want to make your Greek experience meaningful? Most everyone does at first and then life bumps into us. The people we meet are not as excited to make a difference. We see chapter GPA as branding opportunity while others see grades/classes as a distraction. We face the surprisingly difficult task of inspiring others to achieve organizational goals/dreams. Welcome to the life of a leader. Your generation is blessed with great intelligence & ability... the problem is often finding motivation/courage to lead in the face of peer pressure. Your generation is often labeled, “The Lost Generation.” This moniker need not stick or be accurate, however. This presentation provides a kick-start in your life through discussions of sacrifice, values, priorities & perspective. Corey Ciocchetti, CAMPUSPEAK & Univ. of Denver, coreyciocchetti@gmail.com

A Concerted Effort: How your Fraternity Community can become an Ally in Ending Sexual Assault ICC Room 126 | Program #111

Sexual assault is a pervasive issue on college campuses. The fact that so many students, including a number of fraternity and sorority members, are affected by this is an unfortunate reality that our communities have to face. However, rather than facing the issue head on or trying to be proactive, our communities and councils often avoid the issue or do not know how to respond appropriately. In particular, fraternities can play a vital role in ending sexual assault on campuses across the country. This program is geared toward fraternity men and will provide ideas and resources to help councils and communities prevent, respond, and educate others appropriately regarding sexual assault.

DUI: A Powerful Lesson

White River B | Program #113

Just three months before graduation, Mark and four of his fraternity brothers and best friends headed to spring break. On the final night, they decided the least drunk would drive home. The next morning, three of the men were dead, and Mark lay in the hospital critically injured and facing three felony counts of DUI manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate college, Mark ended up the first member of his family to go to prison for his role in the tragic death of his three friends. Mark leaves students with a real story that forces them to confront their own decisions. He doesn’t preach or tell people what to do, but puts real faces to the tragic consequences of impaired driving by showing videotape the friends made of their trip, ending just moments before the crash. Mark Sterner, CAMPUSPEAK, Inc., mark@campuspeak.com

Retaining and Engaging our Members White River C/D | Program #114

For many fraternities and sororities, nearly 1 of every 5 members QUIT—and an even larger number disengage at some point in their college career. The only difference between members who quit and members who disengage—is paperwork—they just didn’t fill out the form. Retaining members to initiation is a major challenge on many campuses, but retaining and engaging them through graduation is our ultimate goal. There are several key strategies you can utilize to not only keep your members, but truly engage them! Utilizing exclusive data obtained through proprietary research on fraternity/sorority retention and our NEW Retention and Engagement program, this session will provide anyone interested in retaining and engaging their members with experiential strategies that can be applied in their members’ experience throughout membership.

Held back by chapters who don’t “get it” & don’t care? Members who are there for the wrong reasons? Fighting? Cliques? Apathy? Poor appreciation for ritual, service, scholarship? What if good leaders could spend more time actually leading, rather than just cleaning up the problems & dealing with negative images made by those who don’t “get it?!” Well it’s time to tell them to… Buy In or Get Out! David will say what you wish you could. Let him confront them in his funny, interactive and moving style. His message will inspire those that care about the core values of fraternity and sorority life—fellowship, service, leadership and scholarship. It will touch on topics that range across all major issues facing today’s members. He will challenge your members to embrace the best and get rid of the rest.

SAFE Liaisons: Creating a Welcoming and Inclusive Greek Community Room 206 | Program #116

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words won’t do a thing.” This childhood saying is proving itself to be a myth, words can have an effect on others. The words we choose on a daily basis impact those around us. Iowa State’s Greek Community presents SAFE Liaisons (Students Advocating For Everyone), a student group created to educate their fraternity and sorority community on the importance of diversity and inclusion. This session will demonstrate why and how we created a student lead organization to educate the community about LGBTQ acceptance. A curriculum based on inclusive language, SAFE Liaison’s workshops found an innovative approach to LGBTQ education. Join us and learn how to make your campus SAFE! Devin Hall, Iowa State University, dhall@iastate.edu

Your Major doesn’t Matter: What Employers Really Want and How to Be It White River A | Program #117

Research is telling us that top employers don’t really care much what your academic major is, just that you have a degree; they don’t really pay attention how good your GPA is or what school you went to, either. What employers are really looking for from men and women coming out of college is leadership and social skills, the ability to engage in meaningful and thoughtful conversation, and a level of excellence in their social abilities. Well, that’s good news and that’s bad news—because as you many already have realized, you didn’t take a class called “Making Friends 101” in college. Don’t worry, your friends at Phired Up has all the stuff you’ll need to make a great impression, ace the interview, and land the job you want through a new level of Social Excellence. Jessica Gendron Williams, Phired Up Productions, Jessica@PhiredUp.com

Shake the SHOULDS: Become STRONG Members, Create STRONG Chapters Room 209 | Program #118

“I should find a more applicable major. I should go out more. I should go out less. I should be in a relationship. I should have an internship.” College and Greek life present you with a million external pressures. Your parents, teachers, advisers and friends all have ideas about who you need to be and what you need to do. The trick is weeding through good intentioned advice and getting clear about your own goals and desires. When you are on a path of healthy self-discovery you bring incredible strengths to your chapter. This presentation helps you shake the shoulds and get clear about your personal strengths and passions. Don’t just show up for your life…SHOW UP STRONG. Erin Foley, CAMPUSPEAK, ErinFoley1126@gmail.com

An open Reflection on Spirituality: Faith in your Greek Experience Room 301 | Program #119

Think back to the time you walked across your campus and ran into the “extremist” religious speaker. How did that interaction make you feel? What were your initial thoughts? During this reflective presentation participants will have an opportunity to synthesize those moments and reach a deeper understanding of their own spiritual journey in relation to their fraternal experience. The purpose of this presentation is to have participants understand their personal spiritual identity and how it connects to their experiences as fraternity and sorority members. Through the use of Robert Nash’s Religio-Spiritual Narratives the presenters will explore personal identity development. This presentation is open to all walks of life regardless of faith based beliefs or experiences.

Embracing the F-Word: It’s for Men, Too Room 308 | Program #120

#Yesallwomen. #Whyistayed. #Likeagirl. #Banbossy. Society’s damaging treatment of women, from corporate ceilings to victim blaming, continues to surface in social media. Compelling hashtags are tweeted, retweeted, and shared, but who’s really listening? Who is actively seeking change, standing up for #allwomen? A crucial solution to this increasingly visible problem is one that many men consider as only being for women—feminism. Yet, as members of the interfraternal community, fraternity men and sorority women alike maintain values that are closely tied to the tenets of this oft-polarizing concept. Through an engaging and empowering conversation, feminism will be explored as a charge for both women and men in the pursuit of creating an inclusive, healthy, and safe fraternal community.

Help! I’m a Greek Adviser, but this isn’t my Council Room 311 | Program #121

Advisers often find themselves struggling to build positive relationships with students from different councils, especially if the adviser is not Greek or is more familiar with another council. This workshop will review the advantages and disadvantages of being an unaffiliated and affiliated adviser. In addition, this presentation will help professionals who advise councils they are not affiliated with building trust, gaining respect, and enhance the experience of fraternity and sorority members. This presentation, framed around the Theory of Challenge and Support (Sanford, 1967), will provide attendees with resources and tips on how to navigate advising council(s) they are not affiliated with.

Are Closed Door Executive Board Meetings Setting us up for Failure? Room 314 | Program #122

Making decisions behind closed doors cuts off the majority of our chapter to the process. How can we expect our members to be invested in the direction of the organization without involving them in crucial conversations? This session will focus on the importance of engaging members in the decision making process and how to break down the doors that can prevent growth and unity. This session will help equip chapter/council leaders with the skills to handle the frequent disappointment of members that seem to not be ‘on board’ and help provide tangible ways to persist with their ideas and vision despite resistance. Students will learn how to better engage their community through open dialogue while honoring and maintaining any ritualistic aspects of Executive Board meetings.

Getting out of the Greek Bubble: Why the all Greek Barbecue will Kill your Community Room 313 | Program #124

All-Greek events are awesome, lots of food, great friends, and an excuse to hang with that cutie in the other council!

Shaking Hands and Kissing Babies: Network like a Boss Room 101/102 | Program #125

One of the biggest selling points for joining a fraternity/sorority is the networking opportunities that you’ll have when you graduate. While this is very true, we never actually talk about how to engage in those conversations & miss out on a huge opportunity. As we know, the world is more about who you know than what you know. People are getting jobs because they know somebody who knows somebody. The art of small talk is dying because of social media. Decision makers in your future jobs didn’t have that growing up though, they still value good old fashion conversations. Come to this session to learn how to get the most out of your new network. Note: also helps with recruitment! James Robilotta, CAMPUSPEAK / Iota Phi Theta Inc., jtrobo@gmail.com

Size doesn’t Matter (I Promise) Room 103/104 | Program #126

If your chapter is small, don’t worry. There’s still a lot that can be done. In this session, designed for chapter leaders overseeing active memberships of 25 or less, Sam Davidson will show why small groups can accomplish great things. Likewise, Davidson will share techniques and tactics for making sure your small group looms large on campus as is just as visible and effective as a chapter four times your size. Remember: it’s not about the amount of people in your community; it’s about the amount of community in your people. Sam Davidson, CAMPUSPEAK, ssdavidson@gmail.com

Consent is So Frat

Room 309/310 | Program #127

Consent is So Frat believes that fraternity brothers should have these conversations with each other, and this workshop will teach attendees how to host discussions and lead events surrounding the issue of sexual assault. Recognizing the need to discuss consent in a way that brothers can connect to and feel strengthened by, this workshop will talk about how to make consent a value your chapter supports and practices. Recently, news of sexual assaults at fraternities have been in the news nationwide. For this reason, it is vital that you show your brothers that Consent is So Frat.

Risk management may not be the most fun topic, but it is one of the most important. Teaching your chapters about this topic means learning how to creatively address this in a way that doesn’t leave everyone yawning.

Achieving Values-Based Sorority Recruitment White River G/H | Program #134

For years, sorority chapter and community leaders have been pushed to create a more values-based recruitment process. However that request has left most of us wondering, “How?” Values-Based Sorority Recruitment can be achieved by focusing on four specific categories (behavior, criteria, conversations, and expectations) at both the chapter, community, and PNM level during the sorority recruitment process. We’ll discuss specific strategies, tools, and programs in all four categories that you can use to achieve Values-Based Recruitment in your chapter or community. Stop wondering “How?” and start asking “When?” KJ McNamara, Phired Up Productions, KJ@PhiredUp.com Tina VanSteenbergen, Phired Up Productions, Tina@PhiredUp.com

Ed Block 7, 1:45 - 2:45 p.m. From TFM to TCM: Making the move from Letters to Livelihood

The Problem with Fraternity Recruitment and the ten ways your Chapter can fix It.

Those precious four years have come and gone, and now what? Graduating doesn’t mean it’s over; it just means that it’s time to put your skills to the test. You may not realize it just yet, but surviving recruitment season, planning the biggest philanthropy event on campus, and spoiling your little rotten has more value than just living up to the title that you possess. The time and energy that you’ve invested into your organization will undoubtedly provide you with the transferable skills to set you apart from the rest in the workplace. In this collaborative session, we’ll go from “Total Frat Move” to “Total Career Move” by creating a 30-second pitch that will pull you out of the stereotype of “just another frat-star millennial.”

Have you noticed how year after year chapters continue to be closed or sanctioned because of members engaging in or displaying behaviors that run contrary to their fraternity’s values and principles? Have you considered that the reason these challenges with member behavior continue to happen is due to a problem with the fraternity recruitment process? If so, this presentation is for you! More than a recruitment seminar, this presentation discusses how the problem with fraternity recruitment is that it continually fails to attract enough high quality men who could be part of the solution to negative member behavior and offers ten ways how your chapter can fix this problem.

Academics: A Core Value that Extends to all Members and Officers Room 206 | Program #138

This program will provide chapter leaders the necessary tools to create a comprehensive academic development plan that is based upon student development theory. Creating academic development plans based on the students’ needs and class ranking is essential in order to be effective. This program will provide resources to create individual academic plans for each class of students. In addition, we will explore how to incorporate your chapter’s academic development plan into your new member education and even with prospective new members. We will also discuss various topics ranging from creating an academic calendar to tips for positive academic programs that encourage rewards rather than punishment and also how to incorporate all officers into your academic plan.

This educational yet practical session will create a safe environment to have honest dialogue to identify the issues that are holding your campus NPHC back from advancing. Using community building, model behavior, and foundations of the The Five Principles of Exemplary Leadership, we will create strategies and goals to implement the change you would like to see on your campus. You will leave this session not only with thoughts but with a plan of action, a new network of like-minded individuals, and goals to succeed because there are no excuses.

Why it’s ok to Wear a Three Piece Suit to a NASCAR Race Room 311 | Program #142

We can learn a lot about ourselves and our community by seeking an outside perspective. If we reject the idea that all of our members ‘get it’ and everyone outside never will, we can truly engage in deep and meaningful conversations about our organizations. Two past AFLV LeaderShape On-Site-Coordinators will use their experience being ‘flies on the wall’ to show the benefit of operating as an ‘outsider’ from within any chapter or council. We will discuss how and when to engage individuals inside and outside our organizations in impactful conversations about fraternity and sorority life. Students will be challenged to not assume everyone holds the same knowledge they do and learn to hold themselves and others accountable to serving as leaders for the fraternal movement.

Dynamic Recruitment for Sororities: How the Best of the Best are Growing White River G/H | Program #144

Growing in quantity and quality is not about blind luck. It’s a strategic, intentional, and holistic approach to growth. The best universities, businesses, and organizations in the world don’t wait for high-quality candidates to come to them. They consistently and strategically build a large network to selectively choose from throughout the year—whether formally through a large process or informally hand-selecting them. The best sorority chapters and communities are doing the same. For 10 years, Phired Up Productions has studied highperforming businesses, academic institutions, and sororities. The best of the best have some core philosophies in common that consistently result in high quantities of high quality people trying to get in. We’ll teach you exactly what they’re doing to attract, recruit, and select high quantities of high quality candidates.

Ed Block 7, 1:45 - 2:45 p.m. Is it Time to use “Recruitment” and “NPHC” in the same Sentence?

45 Things you can be doing right now to Improve your Fraternity Community (#7 will shock you)

“Our organization doesn’t recruit,” is a popular phrase said by most NPHC brothers and sisters. As a brother of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. I know I have said it as well. Is the the time to change that upon us? Percentage-wise, NPHC numbers are low at predominantly white institutions. Small chapter sizes, organizations having all of their members graduate, and other issues could all be alleviated by getting these orgs to recruit more. However, hyper exclusivity, tradition, laziness, poor grades, color barriers, and non-NPHC-educated advisors all negatively impact chapter sizes. Come to this roundtable discussion so we can see what is working and not working on each other’s campuses. We don’t have to call it recruitment, but we need to do something.

This BuzzFeed style program will provide a rapid-fire snapshot of best practices from around the country with a focus on advancing your IFC Community. From discussions of Council activities that are meaningful to examples of relationshipbuilding, these 45 1-minute-long steps will change your perspective on typical IFC activities. Through the use of extensive multimedia, this presentation is sure to engage you while promoting you to think creatively about changes you can be making back on campus. Remember, #7 will shock you!

Stop Networking... Start Connecting! Room 103/104 | Program #146

Success is not about what you know, it’s NOT EVEN about WHO YOU KNOW, it’s about who you are connected with. Your ability to develop meaningful relationships is the key to recruiting more quality members, creating a cohesive bond within your sorority or fraternity, increasing involvement within your organization, landing your dream job, and living an enriched life. In this session, you’ll learn how to create an instant connection with anybody, conversation topics that will keep a discussion going, and how to get someone you just met to want to go out of their way to help you to achieve your goals. After learning these important strategies, you’ll have the opportunity to apply what you just learned by connecting with other Greek leaders in attendance.

Cutting Through the Confusion: Understanding and Defining Hazing White River A | Program #147

When it comes to hazing, confusion reigns. Well-intentioned efforts to simplify what is an isn’t considered hazing, have actually complicated the issue for students, as well as professionals and volunteers, in some cases. Lists of forbidden activities, definitions written by lawyers, and admonitions that anything new members are asked to do that initiated members aren’t is hazing, have just served to confuse everyone. This session will tackle the complicated world of hazing definitions as a lively discussion. It will encourage professionals to understand the concepts better in order to have similar discussions with their own students. When we are all working from the same playbook, we will be better able to address the actual problem of hazing rather than continuing to argue about what behavior does or doesn’t fall under that heading. Tracy Maxwell, Founder HazingPrevention.Org, tracymax88@gmail.com

The Conversation we need to Have: A Train-the-Trainer Program on Ritual Room 309/310 | Program #148

Ritual. We all have one. We all participate in it. We all know it’s supposedly important. But for many of us, we’re not good at talking about it, we don’t know much about it, and we rarely take the time to figure out what to do with it. This session is designed in a train-the-trainer format, meaning that rather than being lectured at, you will actually learn how to facilitate conversations and programs in your chapter that focus on Ritual and the values of your organization. Secrets will not be shared, but practical tips, tactics, and examples will be in order to enhance what Ritual means to you and to your organization.

White River B | Program #152

According to fashion magazines, women should be six foot, a size zero, and in perfect proportion. Men should be chiseled forms with perfect abs. Our culture’s obsession with “perfect looks” has begun to shape and change the way men and women feel about themselves. It needs to stop. If we continue to allow the media to define how a man or woman should act and look, we are faced with organizations where men and women never feel good enough the way they are. Join the conversation on how we can change our chapters, community, and campus to form strong confident Greek Leaders. Stacy Nadeau, CAMPUSPEAK/Delta Delta Delta, slnadeau@gmail.com

It’s time Panhellenic, IFC and cultural Greek members come together to dispel myths and learn about the “other” members of the Greek community. What is intake? Why do they have numbers on the back of their shirts? And what’s up with those colors, shrieks, and hand signs anyway? Come learn and ask all the questions you have been itching to. This session is only for IFC/Panhellenic members and advisors who wish to truly understand what it means to be inclusive when it comes to your Greek community!

How many times have you made a large investment from your activities budget on a campus wide Diversity event and the only people who attend are the ones who are already on board and celebrating. This session will teach students how to be more inclusive and broaden their messaging to reach the people who need to be exposed to the ideas of Social Justice, Diversity, and Engagement. Along with the introduction of new marketing strategies and techniques, experience first hand the impact of practical inclusive programming that meets and couples with people where they are with a non-aggressive open minded approach.

Being in a sorority or fraternity, you’re given the opportunity to make a change in your community through your philanthropy. Unfortunately, sometimes we get stuck doing the same events and promotions and they start to feel like a checklist. Instead, all of your members should be feeling the impact they’re making. In this discussion-based program, we will discover what’s holding your chapter back from making even more of a difference in your community. You’ll learn and bounce ideas off of other schools and leave with questions and exercises to bring back to your chapter. It’s time to stop using our philanthropy checklist and get excited about giving back! Jessica Ekstrom, CAMPUSPEAK, jessica@headbandsofhope.org

The program will require students to become reflective and analyze past experiences in order to grasp the severity and prevalence of sexual harassment on college campuses. Within this safe space, students will discuss their different views respectfully while learning from their fellow colleagues. In addition, Blurred Lines will discuss the vital role members of Greek lettered organizations can play in increasing awareness and reducing the number of cases on college campuses. Through active participation, participants in each session will leave with greater understanding and resources to educate their chapters and college community on sexual harassment.

An Interactive Guide to Developing peer lead Conversations on Interpersonal Violence Room 311 | Program #159

Through a partnership with the Student Wellness Center, the Interfraternity Council at The Ohio State University developed an initiative to facilitate conversations among the new members of the community on topics of bystander intervention with a focus on sexual violence. Specific learning outcomes included: the ability to recognize different types of sexual violence, define the bystander effect and bystander intervention, practice bystander intervention methods and understand sexual consent and when it can be given/received. Within this interactive session the presenters will share best practices and assessment data collected from participants involved in the training. The presenters will also facilitate a discussion on the importance of identifying cultural implications of high risk behaviors, the importance of acknowledging the knowledge gap for undergraduate students understanding consent and developing a culture void of norms which support interpersonal violence.

From Values to Brand: How to Overhaul your Greek Community’s Image Room 301 | Program #160

If someone asked you to describe Greek Life on your campus, how would you answer? They say perception is reality and your community’s image is a powerful recruitment and retention tool. Perception not only affects member morale, but also your interactions with the campus and community. Does your image align with what you actually do? Do your actions align with what you want your community to be? Overhauling your community’s image is a group effort; to succeed, you must engage your governing councils, advisors, and each chapter. Presenters will use Fort Hays State University’s rebranding process as a framework to help you identify your community’s values, develop buy-in, and ultimately, transition your community into using a unique brand that motivates your chapters to succeed.

Marketing your Greek Experience for Life after College Room 313 | Program #161

You are the second vice president or the marketing and public relations coordinator for your chapter. Maybe you are the council operations officer on your governing council. Does an employer know what that really means? Many times we have positions and titles that make sense to us, as Greeks, but other people might not really understand what we do or how it is relevant to the job or internship that we are applying. This session will help you craft your resume, cover letter, and interview skills to highlight your experience in a Greek organization. Billy Boulden, Iowa State University, bboulden@iastate.edu

These notions permeate the NPHC sorority community and are particularly detrimental to the notion of “sisterhood”. It also reflects the classifications that African American women have always experienced around complexion, weight, and physical features, and how they are currently reflected in the media. This session will examine how cultural perceptions impact ideas of friendship and sisterhood amongst Sister Friends. Facilitators will create an atmosphere for honest dialogue about the complex hatred that is experienced within the NPHC sorority community. Participants should come with an open mind and willing to take an introspective look at their interactions with fellow NPHC women.

Curiosity: Avoid Killing the Cat Instead ask the Right Questions Room 206 | Program #163

Do you remember when you were first told “curiosity killed the cat?” From a young age we are taught that curiosity is bad, exploration should be avoided, and never to stick our noses where they don’t belong. If we want to succeed in addressing community issues, becoming better leaders, and making sure our organizations exist in the future, we need to be certain that we are curiously asking the right questions. When developed properly, curiosity isn’t negative but instead it is the most meaningful trait in driving change. Making the most of curiosity means knowing which questions to ask, how to ask them, and what to do with the answers. Curiosity didn’t kill the cat, it helped it grow. It’s time that we grow too.

Preventing a Social Media Nightmare Room 208 | Program #164

Does your organization have a social media strategy for responding to sticky situations? Are you capitalizing on all the benefits social media has to offer? Today almost every student organization has a presence on social media. This interactive session brings together leaders to tackle the challenges that social media presents on campuses and gives you the chance to collaborate with your peers to create a social media strategy to take back to your organization.

Ed Block 8, 3:15 -4:15 p.m. Purple Cows: Doing Different in a World of Same

Why CHANGE is Part of the SUCCESS Equation!

Do you think all of our fraternal organizations are essentially the same? Have you ever looked at a recruitment brochure, a chapter website, or another advertisement and thought “If we just changed the colors and letters, that could be my organization”? In a world where so many groups are fighting for attention, you need to stand out. You need a Purple Cow. Come learn to think differently about your chapter or council and develop strategies to stand out in a world of same.

Renowned scientist Charles Darwin had it correct when he stated, "the species who survive are those who best adapt to change." The importance of adapting to change is not only essential for survival in the animal kingdom, but also in every aspect of our human society including achieving desired goals and leaving a positive impact on others. Change is inevitably constant yet most individuals simply HATE change! In this interactive program, we will discuss and discover secrets on how to modify our beliefs about embracing change within our personal lives and fraternal organizations. Participants will experience a series of exercises and lessons which will not only improve their understanding of embracing change, but it will also equip them with an appreciation for adapting to change quickly and successfully! CHANGE is part of the success equation!

Breaking The Mold: Overcoming Challenges in NALFO/ NMGC Recruitment Room 101/102 | Program #166

There is a trend among NPHC, NALFO and NMGC organizations to recruit members whose ethnic/racial profile fit the organizations, without considering the whole individual and her/his compatibility with the mission and values of the organization. This session will address challenges faced by NPHC, NALFO and NMGC organizations with their current recruitment practices. Participants will engage in an interactive discussion on ways to redesign their recruitment efforts. Rafael Matos, William Paterson University of New Jersey, matosr2@wpunj.edu

IMPROV your Chapter

Room 103/104 | Program #167

Are you someone who doesn’t understand why people call when they could have just sent a text? Is your voicemail inbox full or not even setup because you think they’re stupid? Conversations can be very awkward and time consuming, I get it. But old fashioned conversations are pivotal in our chapters and good leaders know how to effectively listen and react on their feet. In this session attendees will have to tuck their pride and get ready to participate. I will be running them through a number of improv comedy exercises that will highlight being critical listeners and the importance of support in their chapters and councils. James Robilotta, CAMPUSPEAK / Iota Phi Theta Inc., jtrobo@gmail.com

NPHC Presents: The Walking Dead Chapters Room 203/204 | Program #168

Have you ever wondered why your chapter members seem like dead weight? Have you wondered what caused this outbreak and how to stop this contagious mentality? In this session, you will learn what causes your members to become apathetic. You will leave the session with knowledge of best practices to bring life back to your chapter to restore your legacy.

Managing Well Being Amidst the Chaos of College Room 302/303 | Program #169

College student leaders aren’t necessarily known for their overabundance of free time. Between classes, chapter meetings, leadership retreats, work/study jobs, internships, and more, it often seems like there’s barely enough time to sleep let alone worry about your personal well being. But if you want to thrive in life, you must find ways to focus on yourself in order to give your best to the world. This session will examine the five elements of well being—physical, social, community, financial, and career—and realistically identify opportunities for you to increase your well being amidst the chaos of college.

How to be Truly LGBTQ Inclusive Room 309/310 | Program #171

For the past few years fraternities and sororities around the country have opened their doors to gay and lesbian members. But just because you have an openly lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender brother or sister does not make your council or chapter truly LGBTQ inclusive. This interactive session is for everyone as Shaun leads you through an assessment of how inclusive your chapter or council is. He then provides simple steps to make your chapter or council inclusive for everyone. Ultimately this session will help you build a culture among your fraternity or sorority where all members are valued and respected. Shaun Sperling, CAMPUSPEAK, shaunsperling@gmail.com

Separate but Collaborative: A better way to Collaborate as Councils ICC Room 125 | Program #172

When we think about governing councils, we should be thinking of them as separate entities with specific roles, members and expectations. Despite the differences amongst these councils, there are numerous opportunities for partnership. This session will first explore the areas of separation, before outlining successful examples of collaboration. Ultimately, while our councils may seem different, they are united by shared values and a vision for a better fraternity and sorority community. When we come together with the right opportunities we enhance our ability to create change.

Creating an Effective and Meaningful Judicial Process for your IFC ICC Room 126 | Program #173

Does your Judicial board need help in understanding their purpose, appropriate sanctions, or how to be effective and efficient? Then this is the session for you. The presenters will introduce a number of ways in which your IFC Judicial board and IFC community can be more effective in preventing negative behavior. These include educational initiatives such as active bystander training and communication of community standards. This session is geared toward IFC leaders and community members interested in learning how to use their Judicial board in an effective and meaningful ways.

ED BLOCK 8, 3:15 - 4:15 p.m. Leading Alone: Are you the last person who Cares?

Values-Based Fraternity Recruitment

Most chapter and council leaders find themselves asking, “Why A.M. I doing this?” at one point or another during their time in office. “No one else cares...I’m doing everything...and the more I do the less people care” And if that sounds familiar...don’t attend this session expecting a pity party, sympathy or a feel-good lecture. We’ll look at leadership by asking difficult questions and challenging you to improve your style and expand your leadership tool box. Motivation begins with you.

What is Values-Based Recruitment? It’s more than just taking alcohol out of recruitment and having some criteria that you use in selection. It’s an approach the fraternity COMMUNITIES can make in collaboration with the IFC, chapters, and prospective members to make the process more centered on finding the right men for your community and the right men for your chapter. Come learn from the recruitment experts—Phired Up Productions—what IFC’s and chapters can do to make the culture shift to a more values-based recruitment in their community and chapter.

Life Write our Best Material! (True life lessons on love, life, leadership, friendship, character) White River C/D | Program #175

Sometimes when we least expect it, situations and experiences we encounter throughout our lives teach us valuable lessons about living a character-driven life, being a better partner, a more loyal and dedicated friend, and a complete person and leader. While sharing true and poignant stories experienced throughout his life, David Coleman will motivate and inspire you to make the difference daily that you know you can and must! If we look hard enough, the principles of life and leadership that we need to live by and embrace every day (be it in Greek Life or another endeavor) fall right before our eyes. The question is, will we see them and incorporate them into our daily decisions and actions. This is not a traditional keynote or featured session and will have you asking yourself, “Where is it said that learning can’t be fun and entertainment can’t be life-changing?” David Coleman, Coleman Productions, Inc., brooke@colemanproductions.com

#LML: How our View of the World Changes Everything White River G/H | Program #176

Our view of the world, and perception of the events in our lives, distinguishes our experiences from those of everyone around us. Our perception is completely unique to us, and ultimately this view determines our happiness, peace of mind, success, and the quality of our relationships. It’s amazing how a simple shift of the mind can recreate all of the outcomes in any situation. Tracy helps redirect the way students and professionals focus their perceptions. This thought-provoking program will give students steps to learn to love their lives with greater passion and contentment, which opens them up to less stress, better relationships, more meaningful work and a profound sense of purpose.

The Five Great Hazing Myths ICC Room 128 | Program #178

Hazing persists in fraternities and sororities because members think that it benefits the organization. But does it? Do the benefits of hazing outweigh its well-documented risks? This session will explore the roots of hazing, and will debunk five of the most common myths that contribute to the prevalence of hazing on college campuses. Using a variety of empirical data and research, this session will give participants a better understanding of the problems with hazing, and will challenge participants’ perceptions about the benefits of hazing.

Dynamic Recruitment Counselors White River A | Program #179

Sorority recruitment counselors might be the most important and integral part of a successful sorority recruitment process. These positions should be one of the most significant and coveted positions within our sorority communities attracting our very best sorority leaders. All too often, these positions are a way for sorority women to “get out of” recruiting or serve as a means to impact their own chapter’s recruitment success. Regardless of why women are choosing to become recruitment counselors, you have the power to impact the culture of this integral role in a positive way. Taking a more intentional and strategic approach in the recruitment, selection, training, and expectations of recruitment counselors can transform sorority recruitment counselors into a role of significance. We’ll give you specific examples, tools, and strategies to help you build a Dynamic Recruitment counselor team, year after year, for your community.

Through video, presentation, and discussion this program will explore the history of activism within the Greek community. It will also look further into the role that members of the Greek community played in many of this nations moments of protest and unrest. It will also discuss what Greek activism looks like in today’s world and what role they can currently play in the continual fight for equality. Students will leave this session having a renewed faith in their ability to effectively and respectfully fight for equality within their institution and the surrounding community just as many of the founders and prominent members of the organizations have. They will also be pushed to think critically about their role and their organizations role in social, economic, and political change within their community. This will be achieved through the discussion and presentation of these ideas. Ernest Evans, Langston University, ecevans@langston.edu

Leadership in Thirds: Engaging the Whole Chapter Room 206 | Program #182

Leadership can and should be for everyone! When looking at your chapter members, imagine them falling in groups of three. The “top” third are your executive officers and members in leadership roles. Then the “bottom” third: These members have paid their dues to the organization (literally and figuratively) but MAY still be unengaged, uninspired, and quite frankly, the ones you need to drag to chapter meetings. But what about that “middle” third? Their untapped potential is the key to bringing your organization to the next level! Using the Social Change Model and The Five Principles of Exemplary Leadership from The Student Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner you can reflect on your own leadership development and inspire all thirds to do the same.

OMG! I’m A Student Leader Room 103/104 | Program #183

Student involvement is a wonderful part of the college experience. There are opportunities for personal and professional growth, ability to make a positive impact on others, and potential career opportunities. But is it possible for students to be too involved? Student leaders are bombarded with demanding commitments such as composing agendas, executive board retreats and meetings—lots and lots of meetings. All of which can have a negative impact on academics and even physical health.In this program students will learn three key tools that will help them build their resume, downsize commitments, and prioritize their time.

Pulling it all Together: Building a Fraternity Recruitment Plan Room 209 | Program #184

The single most important factor for successful fraternity recruitment is planning and preparation. Recruitment events, names lists, marketing plans, etc., are all tools in the recruitment process. We will pull them together to build a cohesive plan, where each step builds on the previous step to help you develop intentional connections with your future members. We will help you develop a seven-step recruitment plan for your chapter (and provide a workbook for your chapter’s use). It will help you bring in potential members who match your values, and it helps them decide if your chapter is right for them. This program is designed for fraternities on campuses with a set recruitment period (and these tools will be useful in year-round recruitment settings).

Being LGBT* and an LGBT* Ally in Greek Life: Creating an inclusive environment for All Room 301 | Program #185

LGBTQA…what?! Members of Greek fraternities and sororities get just as confused with the LGBT* community as the LGBT* community gets confused with the culture of Greek Life. This session aims to educate on how to create an inclusive environment for LGBT* individuals through: basic LGBT* terminology, first-person perspectives of being LGBT* within the Greek community, and methods of addressing these topics within the organization. This session also looks at how members within your organization can be effective allies to LGBT* members and how all members can support allies within the organization.

Preparing Successful Recruitment Counselors Room 308 | Program #186

Gamma Chi, Pi Chi, Sigma Rho Gamma – so many names for one very important role: Recruitment Counselors. Sorority Recruitment Counselors are a key component of a successful recruitment process. How would the dynamic of Panhellenic recruitment change on your campus if your potential members were better educated and prepared? Would prospective members also feel better prepared and would more be willing to explore the Panhellenic possibilities offered to them? Would you like to see an increase in your retention through the formal process? In this session tools and resources will be discussed and provided to better equip your Recruitment Counselors and ensure they are offering potential new members the information and guidance to make recruitment successful not just for the individuals but also for all your chapters.

Sophomore Savvy: Tools for Influencing older Students Room 311 | Program #187

Congratulations! You’ve made quite an impression in your first months of fraternity and sorority involvement. Suddenly, you find yourself in charge of way more than you bargained for way sooner than you expected. It can be challenging getting upperclassmen who’ve been around the block longer to listen to what you have to say. Whether you’re a freshman, sophomore, or junior, this eye-opening session will help you make others open their ears. You’ll learn how to have and convey authority despite being younger and how to proactively build relationships so members naturally want to help. Pete Mockaitis, CAMPUSPEAK, Pete@PeteMockaitis.com

Facilitation for Student Leaders: How to Influence Change Through Conversation Room 314 | Program #188

Student leaders are often expected to lead meetings and conversations with minimal training or experience. However, there is a big difference in simply leading a meeting and actually facilitating conversations. This session will help you gain skills associated with facilitating to impact your chapter and/ or community. We will discuss strategies to assist in creating a physical environment conducive to participant engagement, establishing ground rules, managing distractions or disruptive participants, and the power of questioning. Participants will have the opportunity to share some of their best and worst experiences and discuss how these issues can be overcome. You will walk away with the skills and confidence to facilitate conversations that lead to high-level thinking that will help impact change in your chapter/community.

Ed Block 9, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. The Key to Crucial Conversations

Behind the Scenes: RFM Explained!

Nothing good ever happens after you hear the words, “Can we talk?” or “I need to talk to you about something.” At that moment, you know you’re about to have a crucial conversation. When faced with a challenging scenario, there are two types of people: those who avoid them all together and those who tackle the challenge head on. This session will help you become a leader who isn’t afraid to have those difficult talks. You will learn strategies to help you initiate and navigate a crucial conversation. You will put your new techniques to the test by reenacting those crucial conversations you have had on campus with your peers. This session will give you the confidence you need to face any discussion head on.

The Release Figure Methodology (RFM) may seem confusing, if you do not understand the purpose and goals behind its creation. Join the National Panhellenic Conference for a “peek behind the curtains” at the way RFM has revolutionized College Panhellenic recruitment! In this session you will learn the basics of RFM, how it benefits College Panhellenics and chapters alike and see what RFM looks like on the specialist’s end.

Be YOU: Building stronger Councils and Chapters through Authenticity Room 309/310 | Program #191

In 2011 Shaun posted a video to YouTube of himself dancing to Madonna’s Vogue at his bar-mitzvah. The video went viral and Shaun was featured on The Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The reaction to the video can be attributed to Shaun’s ability to be authentic. Students join fraternities and sororities to align themselves with people who share similar values and beliefs. But Shaun believes that the most important element of strong sororities and fraternities is each member’s ability to be true to themselves. In this program Shaun will empower you with practical steps and tools to utilize your individual qualities and gifts to become stronger leaders, create more diverse and safe communities, and build stronger councils and chapters. Shaun Sperling, CAMPUSPEAK, shaunsperling@gmail.com

Organizational Change: An Oil change, not a Diaper Change ICC Room 127 | Program #192

Change, change, change, all we hear about it change! What if we said change actually means working non-stop towards being the best? This session will explore the concepts of change management and how chapter leaders can inspire hard work and continuous development, rather than talk about ‘change’ or hope for singular events spurring innovation. Participants will explore ways to assess areas of opportunity in their organizations and how to best communicate these needs to gain support from chapter members. Change management concepts from Kurt Lewin will be discussed with a focus on factors that influence people to change and three stages needed to make change successful. Participants will also be able to talk about short term and long term goal setting along with how to keep chapter members motivated with ways to celebrate when success happens!

We all know that the administration/secretary/treasurer position is one of the most essential but least appreciated. Sometimes this position goes to a younger person because “anyone can do it.” This is for those who already know how to make a budget and take minutes and who want to advance the organization this year and for several years to come.

How many of you have left a leadership program or institute with amazing plans and ideas for the future, but nothing substantial ends up happening when you’re back home? Don’t worry; you are not alone! Creating change can definitely be a journey. We need to believe that change is possible. However, talk is cheap, and we need action if we want things to be better in our organizations and communities. In this session, join the NIC staff to discuss the challenges related to making change happen, how you can renew your motivation for change, and develop strategies to combat the real reasons why many change efforts fail.

The Souls of Black Greeks

Room 103/104 | Program #196

Since its inception, the African-American fraternal movement has been a microcosm of the African-American community. Many of the trials and triumphs we face as a people are also felt on a smaller and sometimes more intimate level as Black Greeks. In The Souls of Black Greeks, Rick Daniels aims to mirror the inspiration and enlightenment of W.E.B. Du Bois’ “The Souls of Black Folk,” in an attempt to reconnect African-Americans and Greeks as one family in the fight for equality in our communities and on our campuses. Touching on historical foundations, artistic culture, and the fast approaching future, The Souls of Black Greeks seeks to challenge and hopefully change the lives of Black Greek Letter Organizations for the better.

Ed Block 9, 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. Crushing Rush

I’m Coming Home: Creating a Plan to Return to Campus

At some point during recruitment we realize how shallow we are being; it’s not our fault we want the hottest people in our organizations. But are we asking the right questions to differentiate all the pretty faces? Attracting the right people to your organization is an easily overlooked aspect of rush because we are so focused on winning over our “rush crush.” So how do you get the best people? The ones who commit to the values of your organization and ensure fellow members uphold them too? The people with a vision for success, and a drive that pushes and makes others feel important? In this presentation Kristen will divulge the secrets to getting the best new members, so that you have the hottest new pledge class (both inside and out).

Leadership conferences are similar to climbing a mountain. Challenges and uncomfortable situations can lead to entirely new perspectives. However, this new perspective is limited to the experience and those on the “ground” are ignorant to the new perspective. The only way off the mountain is down; the only place to return to from this conference – campus. The return to level ground is often more difficult than expected. Only those visiting the “summit” have a familiar perspective. At the top of the mountain it was about you and your leadership experience, on level ground it is about the people you lead. Creating a plan for your return to campus can be helpful in understanding the environment for which you are returning.

Fixing your Governing Council White River B | Program #202

It’s a fact: Many fraternity/sorority community governing councils are a “worst chapter” in action. Boring meetings, occasional leadership, the big chapters always get their way, and then pass a box filled with paper to the next officers while padding the resume’. Can your council achieve something besides status quo? We will begin with council leaders and then transition to programming, delegates, recruitment of new leaders and making meetings count. If you want to maintain the status quo or think, “We’re OK the way we are” then this session is not for you. David Westol, Limberlost Consulting, Inc., David.Westol@gmail.com

Once Upon a Time: Why Great Leaders tell Stories White River C/D | Program #203

In order to be effective, leaders must lead with passion, conviction, and determination. And the best leaders make sure to instill values and goals at every level of an organization to ensure long term success. But how can you become the kind of leader that identifies, cultivates, and inspires the next generation of leaders? In this energetic and humorous presentation, Sam Davidson will share ideas for ways that leaders can identify their own passions and talents and then share them with other team members in a memorable way. Based upon his own experience as an entrepreneur, author, and professional speaker—and drawing upon the wisdom of others—Davidson will share tips and strategies that will allow anyone to determine where to invest time and energy as a leader, how to share a leadership story that inspires, and how one can measure his or her impact as a leader.

Sunday Closing Session Mari Ann Callais Ritual to Reality

9:00am - 10:15am | Grand Ballroom Using music and storytelling, Mari Ann offers a truly unique keynote about values, ritual and the responsibilities of being a lifetime fraternity or sorority member. For nearly a decade, she has empowered students with her fun, upbeat, and meaning keynotes on fraternity and sorority values. Some question Mari Ann’s commitment to her belief that if we had meaningful conversations that included problem solving based on our values, rituals, respect, then our chapters members would be having healthier experiences. Mari Ann has taken a program that has engaged students for more than 10 years and kept it relevant. Today more than ever, her message is needed. Students will leave at least talking about something from the program. Maybe it will be a feeling of community, a sense of responsibility, or just humming a tune. Whatever the outcome, they will remember the “lady with the guitar.�
