Virginia Eta’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating 50 Years of Virginia Eta at Virginia Tech

On April 29, 1972, the Virginia Tech local social fraternity, Sigma Alpha Kappa, became the Virginia Eta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta. Since then, over 800 Virginia Tech men have signed the Bond of Phi Delta Theta. Many of these brothers will gather during the weekend of June 10-11, 2022, to celebrate the long-anticipated Golden Anniversary in Blacksburg, Virginia. 

A weekend full of fun and Brotherhood celebrations as we renew our commitment to our Cardinal Principles. Festivities will begin with a Friday Night Downtown Takeover hosted by the Virginia Tech Alumni Association. Saturday events during the day, such as golf, hiking, odds/evens, and other social activities. Finally, a Saturday evening Reception/Reunion Banquet with presentations including General Council Treasurer David Almacy, the story of ΣΑΚ/ΦΔΘ’s founding, the state of the collegiate chapter, and – of course – the infamous story of Frank Cox.

Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute

Behind everything that makes you proud of Phi Delta Theta is strong leadership – leadership based upon our Cardinal Principles of friendship, sound learning, and rectitude. The Fraternity and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation are committed to developing strong leadership skills from the beginning of one’s membership. The Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute (Kleberg) was created to meet that goal. By bringing together the up and coming freshman and sophomore leaders from our chapters across the United States and Canada, Kleberg creates a Phi Delt learning laboratory, where one is able to learn leadership skills from his peers and distinguished alumni.

 

McKenzie Presidents Leadership Conference

The success of Phi Delta Theta is strong leadership—leadership based upon our three Cardinal Principles. Therefore, the Fraternity and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation created the McKenzie Family Presidents Leadership Conference (PLC) to develop leadership skills and train each chapter’s newly elected president. The Fraternity held the inaugural PLC in 2000 and, it remains a staple in the Fraternity’s educational programming efforts.

Over three days, PLC participants learn the fundamentals of being a chapter leader, emphasizing leadership, ethics, managing chapter operations and external relations, risk management, and character. In addition, the conference features presentations by the best speakers in the Greek world and breakout team meetings facilitated by volunteer alumni and General Headquarters staff members.
