Phi Delta Theta will host the Summer Leadership Series via the Ihlenfeld University for Online Education (PDT U) from August 9–12, 2021. At the heart of the series is the desire to provide education tailored towards the fall 2021 term and a return to normalcy on college campuses.
Geared towards undergraduate leaders, specifically chapter executive officers, the Summer Leadership Series will focus on all things chapter operations in preparation for a more traditional fraternity experience this fall. This concentration will include aspects of recruitment and new member education, social activities and risk management, service and philanthropy, and brotherhood. The event will feature world-class general session speakers, best practice strategies for healthy chapter operations, knowledge of Phi Delta Theta risk management policies, and self-directed, chapter-based learning exercises with an emphasis on accountability and planning for the upcoming semester.
Each chapter is strongly encouraged to register all executive officers for the Summer Leadership Series. In addition to attending the event, each executive officer should work towards earning the Professional Greatness Badge this summer as part of the Pursuit of Greatness membership development program. The Professional Greatness Badge focuses on chapter operations and will serve as a great introduction to the Summer Leadership Series programming.
The majority of the Summer Leadership Series general sessions will also be streamed live on Facebook and recorded and posted in PDT U for those not attending the conference.
Events Coordinator Renée Crist Lefter can be contacted for any questions.
