AFLV Central IFC/College Panhellenic Academy

AFLV Central IFC/College Panhellenic Academy

Where will the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy be held?

It will be held in Indianapolis, IN in conjunction with the AFLV Central conference, February 7-9, 2019. Most of the programming will be held in the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, thus we encourage those attending the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy to reserve accommodations there.


What is the Academy designed to do?

IFC/College Panhellenic Academy is about:

  • Building relationships with members of your council and campus community.
  • Evaluating your personal, community and sorority/fraternity experience.
  • Educating officers on the most up-to-date Panhellenic/IFC knowledge.
  • Defining expectations for your officer role and resources available to support your success.
  • Collaborating with other attendees from your council and campus to create opportunities to work together to advance your community.

Specifically, the National Panhellenic Conference and North American Interfraternity Conference will focus on two main areas – (1) helping council officers understand the councils purpose and (2) officer track programming – nuts and bolts training of how to be effective in the job.


When will the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy be held?

The program will take place as a part of AFLV Central. The full schedule will be coming soon!


What specific officer tracks will be provided at the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy?

President, judicial officer, recruitment officer, internal operations (secretary/treasurer) officer, harm prevention officer, programming officer, public relations officer, and service/philanthropy officer. Our intention is that every officer role be filled in order that we provide the most well-rounded training to every College Panhellenic and IFC.


What about the other council officers I bring to the conference?

We are only offering specific training related to the College Panhellenic and IFC this year.


Will our students still attend major keynotes and the affiliation luncheon with everyone else?

Yes. We have designed the curriculum around all major keynotes at the conference and the affiliation luncheon. On Saturday, Academy participants will have their own separate working lunch. We will not have programming into Friday evening so that your councils can still enjoy a meal together outside of the conference hotel if desired.


Can our students attend other breakout workshops?

Participants are expected to be present during all IFC/College Panhellenic Academy sessions, as to not miss any program components. With the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy running concurrent to AFLV Central breakout sessions, participants should not plan to attend regular conference breakout sessions. IFC/College Panhellenic Academy participants should plan to attend programming outside of the Academy schedule.


If our council wants to be involved, how do we go about registering?

We welcome all interested campuses and individuals to participate and you will register for academy as part of the general registration.


What is the cost of participating?

The cost will be an additional $112/person over the AFLV Central conference registration fee, which covers all program materials for the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy.


What is the policy on refunds, cancellations, inclement weather, etc.?

Please refer to the AFLV conference's policy on the registration page.


Should both our IFC & College Panhellenic councils attend?

Yes, several pieces of the curriculum provide space and time for both councils to interact with and work with each other. Having both councils present is crucial to establishing the importance of fraternity/sorority community in collaboration.


What if only one council can attend?

The College Panhellenic and IFC Academy at AFLV Central is designed for both your College Panhellenic and IFC council to participate together. Since the program is designed to involve both councils, having only one council attend will not realize the full impact of the program; however, if only one council from a campus can attend, they may do so.


If we can't fill every spot, can we send someone else on IFC or College Panhellenic in their place?

Yes. We would ask that you send a representative from your delegation in place of the council member who cannot attend. Ideally, this should be an individual in a role related to the track s/he will attend. When not possible, alternates can be any council officer who is an interested and willing participant. The curriculum will be designed for that specific officer during the track programming portion of the program. It is less helpful and more distracting to have an uninterested participant who feels they are forced to attend. We would ask that you coach this participant on why they are attending (to gather the information and share it with the council officer who cannot attend) and ask them to take notes so that the council officer would be able to understand the information even if they weren’t in attendance.


Can we still participate if we don't fill every council officer spot?

If you cannot fill the council officer spot with another willing participant, you still can participate.


Can we send more than eight (8) people to the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy?

Campuses are able to send as many council officers as they choose, but there will only be officer track curriculum designed for individuals as previously indicated.


I’m the fraternity/sorority advisor (FSA), can I attend as well?

Yes. You are welcome to attend one of the officer training tracks, but it is not required and we have not created content specific to your role.
