Collegiate Leadership Conference (CLC) is Tri Delta’s premier training for collegiate officers. The weekend training combines educational tracks, community cohorts, dynamic speakers and engaging learning sessions aimed to inspire officers to live, learn and lead—with Purpose—for a lifetime!
The CLC experience is designed to provide you with thoughtful preparation for your role through:
- Online modules available on LEADDDer.org
- Pre-Conference Community Cohort (April 4 at 7:30 p.m. CT)
- Collegiate Leadership Conference (April 14–16 in Dallas, Texas)
Our commitment to you is that after attending CLC, you will have:
- Discovered how to lead and navigate change within your chapter.
- Shared and listened to best practices and new ideas from other Tri Deltas across North America.
- Identified strategies to enhance your officer position.
- Developed collaborative relationships with others.
- Created an action plan for your executive committee and officer role.
- Engaged in conversations to elevate your role, chapter and community.
- Demonstrated knowledge of Tri Delta and community resources.
- Identified transferable skills you can gain as a result of serving in your role.
For you to get the most out of CLC, you will need to make a commitment as well. You will need to make the choice to “step up” to the opportunities presented to you and challenge yourself to step out of your “comfort zone.” Your commitment to this learning agreement will generate the results we know are possible.
All participants are expected to make this commitment. CLC will not allow behavior that is contradictory to this commitment to impede or distract from the experience of other participants. Thank you for helping us to ensure an extraordinary weekend for everyone involved!
- I agree to participate in the entire CLC experience which includes online modules on LEADDDer.org, the pre-conference community cohort and the in-person conference and give my 100 percent participation. I understand that participating means listening, sharing my viewpoint and taking part in activities.
- I will refrain from using alcohol or other drugs while at CLC. I will also challenge myself to confront the use of alcohol or drugs by other attendees if I am aware of it. I understand that if alcohol or drugs are found in my room, all participants in that room will be required to leave the conference at their own expense.
- I agree to take responsibility for my own learning. I agree to ask questions if I don’t understand, participate even if I have done an activity before and challenge myself to step out of my “comfort zone.”
- I agree to respect individual differences and the dignity of all people. I will keep an open mind and strive to learn a new perspective.
- I will respect the conference hotel and treat it like my own home. I will also be mindful of the noise level in my room and guest room hallways.
- I will join my sisters and abide by all health and safety directives outlined by the hotel and Tri Delta. In addition, I will monitor my health during the conference and encourage others to follow hotel and CDC guidelines.
- I will remain on the hotel property throughout the duration of the conference. This includes breaks or late at night when no programming is planned. The conference begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 14, and runs through Sunday, April 16, at 12:30 p.m. Attendees that leave early without prior permission may be removed from their officer role and are subject to individual member discipline.
Individuals not abiding by the above will be sent home at their own expense and the appropriate Fraternity officers and volunteers will be notified to assist with potential individual member discipline follow-up.
Attendance Policy: All attendees must attend the entire conference, which means no late arrivals or early departures. Late arrival and early departure requests must be submitted via email to your collegiate district officer (CDO) and collegiate chapter coordinator (CCCo) at least two weeks in advance to communicate and seek approval on any conflicts or factors that would impede your participation in the sessions outlined above. Attendees that arrive late or leave early without prior permission from their CDO and CCCo may be removed from their officer role and are subject to individual member discipline.
Substitutions: The comprehensive CLC experience is designed specifically for executive committee officers. This experience includes LEADDDer.org modules, a pre-conference community cohort and the in-person conference. Substitutions are allowed on a case-by-case basis. Due to the intentionality behind the overall curriculum and experience, substitutions should be considered with extreme care and thoughtfulness, in collaboration with the chapter’s collegiate volunteer team. Substitutions must be approved in advance by the chapter’s CDO and CCCo. Executive committee officers must attend their respective track and cannot replace another executive committee officer. For example, if the chapter’s CCP is unable to attend CLC, the VPO cannot serve as a substitute for the CCP. Questions can be directed to the chapter’s CDO and CCCo.
Your commitment to your role will help guide your chapter into the future. By signing your name during registration, you understand your responsibilities and expectations as a designated officer.
