2017 Chapter Leadership Summit

Alpha Zeta officers from chapters across the country are invited to the first Chapter Leadership Summit, held in Rosemont, IL November 10-12, 2017!

The Chapter Leadership Summit is a one-day workshop on November 11 designed to help AZ chapter officers develop leadership skills and receive resources to help advance their chapter's development.  Attendees will have an opportunity to exchange best practices and discuss strategies to help elevate the Alpha Zeta experience in their chapters.  You'll travel in on Friday, we'll work hard on Saturday, and you'll leave on Sunday with great ideas to take back to your chapter.

Registration is $75 and includes your 2-night hotel stay (Friday and Saturday) and meals on Saturday (breakfast, lunch, and off-site dinner). 


Please register by Wednesday, October 11 so we can anticipate the number of attendees.
