AFLV Central Call for Programs

 

Educational sessions are the hallmark of our conference educational experience. As a program presenter, you have the opportunity to share your expertise, make connections, and positively impact the students and professionals in attendance, while working toward a safer, more positive fraternity & sorority experience.

 

If you are interested in submitting a program proposal for AFLV Central, which includes both the National Black Greek Leadership Conference (NBGLC) and intentional programming for cultural Greeks and members of our LGBTQA community, please review the information below. Note, this opportunity is open to both professionals and students! All submissions are due September 16, 2019.

  

 

AFLV Central Experience Overview

STOP! Before you do anything, please familiarize yourself with why AFLV exists.

 

The purpose of our conferences is to provide undergraduate fraternity/sorority leaders with a premier leadership development experience with an emphasis in:

  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to take leadership-based action within their chapters, councils, and communities.
  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to make positive changes in their chapters, councils, and/or communities.
  • Promote positive attitudes related to interfraternalism and collaborative interfraternal work.
  • Decrease students’ tolerance for unsafe and illegal behaviors within their chapters and communities (i.e. hazing, sexual violence, alcohol abuse, drug misuse/abuse).
  • Increase students’ willingness to hold themselves and their brothers/sisters/siblings accountable for behaviors that run counter to espoused fraternal values.
  • Increase students’ willingness to develop themselves and their brothers/sisters/siblings to exhibit behavior consistent with espoused fraternal values.
  • Increase students’ openness to diversity and a commitment to social justice within their fraternity/sorority communities.
  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to positively impact the world (locally, nationally, globally).

 

Audience/Topics

The typical conference attendee is a sophomore/junior fraternity/sorority leader who holds one or more leadership positions on campus. These student leaders are also likely to hold positions in student government, volunteer organizations, and other campus-wide programming boards. Almost all delegates hold membership in and serve as an officer of the Interfraternity, Panhellenic, National Pan-Hellenic, Latino, Asian Greek, or Multicultural Greek council. In addition, inter/national officers, headquarters staff, and other members of fraternal organizations are regular attendees along with advising professionals and volunteers who are influential leaders in the fraternity/sorority community.

 

More specifically, this includes:

  • Chapter Influences (change-agents within the fraternal experience)
  • Chapter Officers
  • Council Officers
  • Students who don’t hold leadership positions
  • Male, female, transgender, genderqueer, gender non-binary, gender non-conforming, or agender students
  • NPHC (historically African-American) fraternity/sorority students
  • Latino/a fraternity/sorority students
  • Multicultural fraternity/sorority students
  • Asian Pacific Islander Desi American fraternity/sorority students
  • LGBTQA fraternity/sorority students
  • Campus Professionals
  • Headquarters Professionals
  • Volunteers
  • Alumni/ae

  • Civic Engagement
