Officers Workshop

September 16-18, 2022
Marriott West St. Louis

660 Maryville Centre Drive St. Louis, MO 63141

Officers Workshop is held in non-convention years and designed specifically for elected and appointed officers of the Fraternity, the Foundation Board of Trustees, the Fraternity Housing Corporation (FHC) Board and Headquarters staff. The purpose of Officers Workshop is to inspire Pi Phi leaders, build collaborative relationships, offer leadership development opportunities, drive organizational-wide alignment and provide a forum for conversations tied to our operating principles: friendship, relevancy, Pi Phi Pride and harmony. Officers Workshop is one of the rare times during a biennium when the entire leadership of Pi Beta Phi is all in one place.

Officer Training
Many officer groups will meet in conjunction with Officers Workshop. Specialty Teams will meet during Officers Workshop programming while Regional Teams will have the opportunity for additional meeting time on the morning of Sunday, September 18. Please contact your Alumnae Engagement Director or Collegiate Regional Director for more information.
