We Need The Best

Over three days, attendees will take part in specialized programming developed from tenants of the new Comprehensive Brotherhood Development Program. We are asking for only three specific officers from each chapter to attend these tracks:

Leadership Specific Tracks!

President Track

A track specifically designed for top-tier leadership. As part of this track, you’ll help test new programming and provide in-depth feedback on the strategic direction of the Fraternity. If the President cannot attend, only the Vice President can attend in his place.

Inductor Track

This track is specifically designed to solicit input on the proposed new 8-week Associate Member program. Inductors will test new programming, take part in activities and educate future pilot groups. If the Inductor cannot attend, please send a previous Inductor or a highly involved Junior/Senior member.

Recruitment Track

As always, this track will focus on new and improved recruitment concepts from PhiredUp. Attendees will have the opportunity to debate new methods and share unique chapter experiences. If the Recruitment Chair cannot attend, please send a former Recruitment Chair or a successful chapter recruiter.

Advisor Track (Limited to 20/First Come, First Serve)

This track will focus on new advisor training initiatives to be rolled out in the coming year. Participants will provide feedback and gain new insight from advising experts in Phi Sig and the fraternal world. Registration is paid for by the Fraternity, all you have to pay is travel and hotel.

This is all done with hundreds of your Phi Sig Brothers from across the country who share your desire to lead and lead well. The exciting and engaging environment is why the  Shonk Leadership School is worth it!

Leadership training in chapter management, as well as personal development, is provided in annual leadership schools. Named for Court of Honor member and past Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation President Albert D. Shonk, Jr., the Shonk Undergraduate School is held in conjunction with the General Convention in odd-numbered years, or as its meeting in the even-numbered years.

This learning opportunity brings together undergraduates and officers for a refresher course in their duties as fraternity leaders and provides a clearinghouse for new ideas on chapter life in general.

The leadership school was inaugurated at the 1952 General Convention, and subsequent sessions have seen the program expand and grow to the point where it has become one of the most vital parts of the Fraternity.

Slated as an annual meeting beginning in 1988, the Shonk Leadership School features only the best in educational programming for our undergraduate members.
