Preparing IFC Presidents for Interfraternal Leadership

Jan. 5 – 7, 2018
Hilton Garden Inn Airport | indianapolis Registration opens in October 

In the year since NIC 2.0 reforms have passed, one thing we have learned is that 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 — at the start of their term — will prepare them for council and community leadership. We are in the process of finalizing a selection between properties in Indianapolis or Cincinnati, and we will announce the location when registration goes live in October. 

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. For optimal training, these experiences are paired together, but they can also stand alone. 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:

  • Explore individual leadership types
  • Define how to create a shared vision among fellow officers and the fraternity community
  • Develop relationship skills
  • Learn the components of an ideal IFC
  • Determine key relationships and resources needed, and how to gain them
  • Build a coalition of peer IFC Presidents and field experts for ongoing support
