August 26-28, 2016*
*This year we will be introducing leadership training in the morning of Friday, August 26th. Students are encouraged to arrive Thursday evening in order to be in time for leadership training starting at 8:30 a.m. on Friday morning. Lodging for one student from each chapter will be covered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.
Each year the Leadership Conference (formerly the Presidents’ Conference) serves as a kick-off to a new academic year. It is a forum for leadership development and an opportunity for attendees to network, discuss event and fundraising ideas, and receive updates from Grand Chapter. The Grand Chapter will sponsor one student from each chapter to attend. Chapters are encouraged to send their President or President-Elect. If the chapter President is unable to attend, a chapter may elect to send another officer in his/her place.
Each chapter may also send one (1) additional attendee at the cost of the chapter. Chapters choosing to send an additional attendee will be invoiced for travel, lodging and meals associated with the extra attendee. Invoices will be sent post-conference. All attending students must fill out the registration form.
The Grand Chapter will cover the cost of the following for one participant from each chapter:
- Roundtrip airline ticket, or driving mileage (up to the cost of the flight)
- Meals: Friday breakfast and dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and Sunday breakfast (subject to change based on agenda)
- Lodging on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. *Please note you will room with another attendee from a different chapter.
*Please note that the Grand Chapter will not cover the cost of airport parking or taxi rides.
Please fill out the registration form below no later than June 30, 2016. Student information will be sent directly to the travel agent to make travel arrangements. Students will be required to confirm their travel by a return response to the travel agent. If changes to the ticket need to be made by the student after the ticket has been confirmed, the cost of the change will be the responsibility of the student. Any other changes or cancellations to travel after confirmation has been made will also be the responsibility of the student.
Before travel arrangements can be made, a faculty advisor will need to confirm their student’s attendance. The confirmed list will be sent via the Advisors’ Listserv in July.
The conference will be held at the Hilton Columbus Downtown at 401 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215.
All attendees MUST fill out the below form regardless of his/her travel needs. Chapters sending an additional student are also required to fill out the form.
PLEASE remember to fill out your name EXACTLY as it appears on your driver’s license.
