During the conference on Sept. 25-27 the presidents, along with selected advisors and board members, will have an overall orientation of the expectations for all chapters for the upcoming year. Afternoon breakout sessions will address specific questions the presidents might have including ways to raise funds and how to effectively run a meeting. The presidents will be given the dates for all required forms for 2016.
During an afternoon session, delegates will elect a new student member to the National Board. Presidents who plan to run should come to the meeting prepared to explain why they would like to serve and confirm that they will be willing to attend the summer board meetings and fall Presidents Conferences over the next two years. Andrew Henley from Lambda Chapter will return for his second year on the board. He will coordinate the election of the new Student Rep.
