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 8-10, 2018. 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 campus to create a plan for interfraternal advancement.

Specifically, the curriculum will focus on three main areas – (1) helping council officers understand the bigger picture including their responsibilities and rights, (2) officer track programming – nuts and bolts training of how to be effective in the job and (3) council and community goal setting.


When will the IFC/College Panhellenic Academy be held?

The program will take place, as a part of AFLV Central, with sessions concurrent to AFLV programming, outside of major keynote and meal functions.

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

College Panhellenic Academy will provide the following (8) officer tracks: president, judicial, recruitment, communications/public relations, secretary/treasurer, scholarship, diversity/inclusion and service/philanthropy.


IFC Academy will provide the following (8) officer tracks: president, judicial/risk management, internal operations (finance/secretary), recruitment, public relations, scholarship, diversity/inclusion and service/philanthropy. 


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?

This year, we are only offering specific training related to the College Panhellenic and IFC. We will talk to NPHC, NALFO, NAPA and NMGC umbrella organizations to see if their councils would be interested in the future.


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?

Registration is connected to but based on each conference. This year, registration is open to any and all campuses. Space will still be somewhat limited due to the educational breakout space of the conference. It is our desire to slowly grow the program over time.


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. In particular, we will be doing individual council and community goal setting toward the end of the College Panhellenic and IFC Academy program. Having both councils present is important to establishing the importance of fraternity/sorority community in collaboration and action planning.


What if only one council can attend?

The College Panhellenic and IFC Academy at AFLV Central are designed for both your College Panhellenic and IFC council to participate together. Since the program is designed to involve both councils, particularly in the council and community goal setting portion, having only one council attend will not realize the full impact of the program as there will be times set aside for councils to work together where one individual council would have nothing to do. 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 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 be there. 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 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. Please know that the council will not receive the full benefits of the College Panhellenic and IFC Academy as a result.


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. We ask that the FSA should be present for all general sessions to participate with their students. You are welcome to attend one of the officer training tracks, but it's not required.
