Event Details

About Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute

The vision of Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute is to develop confident women leaders who contribute to making the impossible the inevitable. Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute was created for Pi Phi collegians that are interested in growing their leadership skills. Participants do not have to be chapter officers or even aspire to be a chapter officer, but rather have a desire to exemplify the Pi Beta Phi vision, mission and core values as leaders in their chapter, on their campus and in their communities as well as their personal and professional endeavors.  

In this three-day experience, our objective is to encourage Pi Phis to identify their talents and help participants develop a plan so they can serve the world as resilient women leaders.  

“This weekend, I learned how to be the most effective leader that I can be. This encompasses so many things from knowing how to effectively cast a vision, to using my personal strengths to lead people and accomplish my goals, to generally being a better leader by storytelling and motivating my audience to be interested in what I have to say. I learned so many simple, yet effective, details that will have such an impact on the way I communicate and interact with people moving forward. This weekend was not just a conference where you sit and listen and take notes — this was a weekend of reflection, discussion, interaction and collaboration. This weekend was one of the most impactful and inspiring leadership movements that I’ve been a part of, and I’ve attended plenty of leadership trainings before.” Tennessee Delta Sara Stremmer   

Who Should Attend Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute?

Any Pi Beta Phi collegian that wants to develop a strong inner voice and is prepared to take action, speak up and make a difference should attend Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute. Not only will you will make new lifelong friends, but you will also challenge yourself, develop new skills and strengthen skills you already had.

“I think what is most special about Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute is that it is designed especially for women. It goes beyond being a Pi Phi or even being a college woman; the program challenges the fundamental expectations and socialization of women — and that is something I have never experienced before.” California Eta Vanessa Hsia

Canceling or Changing a Registration

A completed registration is only good for the registrant named. Should a registrant be no longer able to attend, her registration should be canceled. The attendee fee will be refunded for registrations canceled prior to 5 p.m. CST May 1. Registrations are non-transferable, meaning a “replacement” registrant may not be substituted for an existing registrant. In the event of a registration cancelation, the open registration spot will be filled by the next registrant, which may include wait-listed registrants. Unlike the process for previous events, the Fraternity is unable to register a “proxy” registrant.

Billing Your Chapter Directly

When the registrant completes the registration process and is on the payment screen, please select the option to “Bill My Chapter” if your fees are to be billed to the chapter. Once selected, type in the name of the chapter, i.e., AL Alpha to ensure the fees are automatically deducted from the chapter you are representing. Chapters will be notified of any Pi Beta Phi Leadership Institute related charges to be deducted in a separate email, following their monthly statement on the first of the month.
