Professionals' Institute - SWITCH: A Change Management Workshop
Friday, April 12 | 2:20 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. | $20

Who should attend? Professionals interested in change management.

Why is change so hard? The primary obstacle is a conflict that’s built into our brains, say Chip and Dan Heath, authors of the critically acclaimed bestseller SWITCH. Research shows that our minds are ruled by two different systems — the rational mind and the emotional mind — that compete for control. The rational mind wants a great beach body; the emotional mind wants that Oreo cookie. The rational mind wants to change something in the chapter; the emotional mind loves the comfort of the “we’ve always done it this way”. This tension can doom a change effort — but if it is overcome, change can come quickly. Join us at #AFLVWest for SWITCH!


Sponsored by the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors.


Culturally-Based Fraternal Growth Series
Saturday, April 13 | Session 1: 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. | Session 2: 3:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. | Session 3: 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Who should attend? Members of culturally-based fraternal organizations (CBFOs).


In a series of sessions, members and leaders of culturally-based sororities and fraternities will engage in a learning experience focused on organizational growth. Topics will include strategies and tactics to attract, build relationships with, select, and secure the right new members for your organization. From marketing and branding, to conversations and relationships, to organizing and tracking prospective members, to closing the deal ... this series is specially built by Phired Up Productions to help all culturally-based fraternities and sororities grow. Expect interactive, fun, workshop style sessions. Come to one or come to all three (the sessions build upon one another but stand on their own as well). Pre-Registration is not required; attendees may attend any or all of the 3 sessions.

Friday, April 12 | 2:20 - 4:30 p.m.


Have you ever seen Shark Tank? Would you like to pitch your idea to solve a campus issue by planning a large educational initiative? What kind of impact could you make on your campus in a particular area? What could you do with $15,000 of educational resources to address an issue on your campus? CAMPUSPEAK would like to work with you!


Do you have an innovative solution to make change happen, but don't have the resources to execute all the educational components necessary for a comprehensive approach? PITCH BY CAMPUSPEAK is an opportunity for greater thinkers and doers to gather, formulate new ideas, and pitch their proposal to make a significant impact on their campus. Pitches should be engaging, solution-focused and have a long-term impact on campus.


Pitches will be heard at #AFLVWest, and the winning projects will be implemented in Fall 2018. Winners of PITCH BY CAMPUSPEAK would receive up to $15,000 in CAMPUSPEAK programs and services! Pre-registration is required to participate. Click to learn more and register.
