In an effort to provide the optimal fraternity experience, Phi Delta Theta’s General Council has announced several exciting changes to the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute and its Minimum Standards Policy regarding conference attendance. Starting this academic year, each chapter will be required to send four traditional delegates to the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute. One of the four delegates will be the Phikeia Educator or a chapter member interested in the Phikeia Educator position. If all four required members attend, there will be a travel reimbursement of 8 cents a mile per chapter from the chapter address to Oxford, Ohio. As always, each of these required delegates’ registration fee is paid for by the Fraternity.
Previously offered for a limited number of chapters, the Phikeia Educator’s track is specially designed to help integrate Phi Delta Theta’s history and values into the new member education to provide a positive and fulfilling perspective into early life as a member of Phi Delta Theta. This falls in line with Phi Delta Theta’s strategic initiative to expose more members to the enriching experience available at the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute.
Failure to send the four required delegates will result in failure to meet the Minimum Standards Policy and may result in a $1,000 fine assessed to the chapter. Please work with your leadership consultant to establish a budget that will be sustainable for the required attendance at Kleberg. In addition to the top notch educational programming, do not miss out on this great opportunity to visit the birthplace of Phi Delta Theta in Elliot Hall at Miami University, where at some point in his life, every Phi should stand!
