This webinar will identify some of the issues currently plaguing Greek Life across the country as well as identify steps that are being taken to help ensure the changes are both proactive and positive for all. Specific topics addressed will be NIC policy changes, the #myfraternity movement, different perspectives on recruitment, changes to New Member Education, and the importance of Total Member Education.
October 2, 2018: Communication
Although the title might sound simple, the topic itself is far from it. This webinar will focus on strategies and techniques to help advisors to communicate effectively with undergraduates. Topics will include motivational interviewing, understanding generational differences, and the sharing of best practices/experiences from both Staff and fellow Alumni.
November 6, 2018: Elections: Guidance, Transition, and Resources
The Thanksgiving Holiday traditionally not only marks the final countdown of the fall semester but also indicates that officer/chairman elections are soon forthcoming. Therefore, this webinar will discuss topics surrounding the election process: how involved advisors/alumni should be, the best way to effectively transition leadership, logistics of Chapter/Executive Council Retreats, and resources available to help both alumni and new officers/chairman.
December 4, 2018: Hello, 2019!
With fall semester rapidly coming to a close, this webinar will focus on tips and tricks to help ensure that everyone kicks off 2019 on a positive note. Topics discussed will range from ways to encourage Brothers to focus on academics, a review of policies surrounding risk management, things to remember when closing the Chapter House for a few weeks, and, of course, national programming scheduled for early Spring 2019.
