Virtual College Weekend 2022

While we're disappointed that we're not able to offer an in-person College Weekend experience for 2022, we are excited to bring all Chapter Leadership Team officers and AAC members a comprehensive offering of live trainings to kick-start their officer term!

Part I: Complete Officer Training in the Online Learning Center

Please be sure to view your specific officer training courses in the Pi Beta Phi Online Learning Center. Each chapter officer has access to a Fraternity Overview course, position-specific courses for their own position, as well as the other positions on their team. In addition, Chapter Presidents and Vice Presidents have a course on Effective Leadership Strategies to develop leadership by explaining officer expectations, servant leadership, the benefits of delegation, facilitation tips and ways to reduce stress.

In addition to these courses, Chapter Leadership Teams should complete the Officers Leadership Retreat to get to know one-another and set goals for the year.

Access the Online Learning Center

Part II: Attend the Leadership Keynote

Keynote details to be announced soon!

If officers are unable to attend, this keynote will be recorded and available on the Online Learning Center to all members of the Chapter Leadership Team and members of AAC in late January.

Part III: Chapter President, Vice President and AAC Trainings

Pi Beta Phi will provide a 2-hour live training session for Executive Council officers. While some of the time is focused on specifics of your roles and your teams, there is significant time dedicated for you to be able to interact with other Pi Phis in your position. Below is a breakdown of all trainings offered. Each track's learning outcomes can be found below.

Please click the link to register for the trainings applicable to your role. Please note, AAC are invited to join Executive Council (Chapter President/Vice President) training in addition to their own AAC training in February. If a Vice President is unable to attend their training, one Director from their team may attend in their place.
