The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values exists to stimulate the growth and development of fraternity/sorority council and chapter leaders by promoting leadership, educational, and values based experiences and resources for student leaders, their advisors, and the larger fraternal market. The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) is the showcase for cutting-edge Fraternity/Sorority programming, technology, thinking, and concepts.
Vision: All fraternity/sorority members exemplify ethical values.
Mission: The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values provides experiences that challenge and encourage fraternity/sorority members to live ethical values and implement best practices.
The annual conferences are the premier programs of the Association. The conferences offer comprehensive coverage of the issues for both men and women and members of all councils and chapter including IFC, NPHC, NPC, NALFO, and NMGC. Additionally, the Association provides training and professional development opportunities for campus advisors, house directors, fraternity/sorority headquarters staff, and volunteers through our various programs and services.
AFLV’s members and conference attendees have direct contact with nearly 3,000 undergraduates representing nearly 300 schools and universities. The annual leadership conferences provide educational sessions, outstanding nationally recognized keynote speakers, and several featured speakers to meet the diverse needs of its broad audience. AFLV annual conference participants are typically the decision-makers for both their chapter and their councils.
