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.
