The Membership University is a pilot program from Alpha Phi Omega geared toward chapters who have 75+ members. The goal of this pilot program is to help chapters improve their existing programs. The representatives attending are encouraged to take notes, ideas, and exercises back to their chapter and teach the other members the knowledge they gained in the following topics:
· Non performing officers and chapter members
· Recruiting quality members
· Working with social Greeks and learning from them
· Membership retention
· Culture changes in the chapter
· Keeping personal business out of chapter business
· Technology in the chapter
· Building up new/younger leaders & succession planning
· Rituals: what they mean to your chapter and how to use them to help you.
· Improving communication
Who can attend?
Membership University is primarily designed for members of chapters with 75 or more active brothers. The Membership University curriculum is designed for chapter presidents, vice presidents of membership, pledge trainers, vice president of fellowship, and members who are dedicated to the betterment of their chapter. The intent of the format is for chapter leaders to gain knowledge during this weekend, and to bring this knowledge back to their chapters to teach their fellow members what they have learned. Then as a chapter all members can be involved with improving their chapters programs.
Due to space and limited resources, each chapter is only able to send three members to the Membership University.
Cost to attend this weekend event is $35 per member/guest and will be charged at the time of registration. This cost will cover food, lodging and supplies for the entire weekend.
