We intend to bring about compelling questions, powerful thinking, and revolutionary action to transform and bring relevance to work of the fraternal profession. We plan to lead and chart an intentional course that inspires all of us to be entrepreneurial in thought, word, and deed. We call upon fraternities and sororities to become the most trusted organizations.
This four-day, three-night, institute-style event will involve a small group of dedicated professionals who have interest in and will contribute to an elevated conversation that will catapult those working with fraternities and sororities to transform the work we do. The Gathering is intended to be a sabbatical and departure of thought to disrupt professionals' behaviors and ways of thinking.
When you’re in an environment that is synergized and propelled by others who care deeply about the same things you do, something special happens, something that nobody-even the most talented and creative thinkers-can do alone. It’s how notions become actions. It’s how thoughts become achievements. And it’s how dreams become realities.
Join your fraternal colleagues at The Gathering and be part of something special as you learn from each other, and experience the power of revolutionary thought and knowledge creation. Come to a place where you can break new ground, uncover different ways of thinking, and become inspired to be entrepreneurial in thought, word, and deed.
