AFLV West Call for Programs


Educational sessions are the hallmark of our conference educational program content, quality, and success. As a program presenter, you have the opportunity to share your expertise, make connections, and positively impact the conference and ultimately the global fraternity and sorority community.
If you are interested in submitting a program proposal for AFLV West, which includes both the National Cultural Greek Leadership Conference (NCGLC) and intentional programming for members of the LGBTQ community, please review the instructions below. Note, this opportunity is open to both professionals and students!


AFLV West 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).



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 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
  • LGBTQ fraternity/sorority students
  • Campus Professionals
  • Headquarters Professionals
