    The Summit provided the targeted training required to excel as a chapter officer. The professional development was excellent and helped us build connections between chapters all across the country.

    Attendee2022 Presidents Summit

    As the leader of a new chapter, I found it very helpful to understand the specifics about how the different chapters are run across the country, along with general skill-building for both the chapter and my professional work. I also appreciated the networking and camaraderie.

    It's a great opportunity to interact and network with other chapter leaders in a way that's not available elsewhere. And the focus on chapter leadership—both it's challenges and rewards—makes for unique and valuable learning. Thank you.
