Preparing IFC Presidents for Interfraternal Leadership

Jan. 5 – 7, 2018
Hilton Garden Inn Airport | indianapolis

IFC Presidents have an enormous job. They are asked to lead their council effectively, establish relationships across campus, create a shared vision and guide their community toward positive change. These are no small tasks. We’d bargain that the IFC President’s job is one of the most complex student leadership roles on campus. And these leaders need greater support. That’s why, in partnership with the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values, Northeast Greek Leadership Association, and Southeastern Interfraternity Conference, we have developed PRIME: The Summit of IFC Presidents. PRIME focuses IFC Presidents on their role from the get-go. Getting this concentrated training in January, when many IFC presidents start their term, will prepare them for council and community leadership. Registration is now open for the inaugural program on Jan. 5-7, 2018, in Indianapolis. Registration will close on Dec. 15. Refunds for paid registrations will be allowed until Dec. 15, 2017. After that time, no refunds will be granted.  

Registration costs are inclusive of meals, lodging and program materials:

    • Quad Room registration – $465
    • Double Room registration – $535

Please note: Space is limited. Because many councils have not yet held elections for 2018, space can be reserved now for the next president. Registration options include:

    • Registering yourself if you will be IFC President in spring 2018
    • Reserving a spot for the next IFC President if not yet elected (Advisors or current council members can reserve a spot for someone else and provide updated registration information at a later date.)
Through attending IFC Academy later in the spring, IFC Presidents will apply what they’ve learned at PRIME as they begin to lead their councils. PRIME and IFC Academy are complimentary experiences that set the IFC President up for success during his time in office. The curriculum in both programs is unique, and the experiences build upon each other. We encourage the IFC President to attend PRIME and the entire council to attend IFC Academy. Click here to see the 2018 IFC Academy opportunities.

PRIME Program Highlights

The goal of PRIME is to prepare IFC Presidents to be the best possible leader as they work with their Council to be the best IFC they can possibly be. This is accomplished through high-level skill building around leadership and learning from experts in the industry while sharing their own best practices and IFC experiences with their peers.

PRIME attendees will:

  • Build a network with other IFC Presidents from across the country
  • Learn executive leadership skills needed to be IFC President
  • Learn the components of an ideal IFC
  • Determine key relationships and resources needed, and how to gain them
  • Understand how to manage difficult situations and complex problems
  • Learn from experienced professionals and experts in the field
