Presidents’ Leadership Academy

The James E. Greer, Jr. Presidents’ Leadership Academy is one of the Fraternity’s premiere leadership programs. The program is intended to be an intensive leadership development program that challenges brothers to create positive change in their chapters and communities by equipping them with the necessary tools and skills.

Presidents have the opportunity to network with their peers from across the country, develop a plan for chapter/prospective chapter success and grow as a leader who can effectively manage his peers.

This retreat is hosted at the same location as the Emerging Leaders Institute; every Chapter is strongly encouraged to send a brother to both programs. Delegates can travel together.

About the Namesake

The academy is named in honor of Brother James E. Greer, Jr., a 1964 graduate of the Beta Pi Chapter at California State University – Long Beach, where he was the Chapter President. He was among the group of eight undergraduates and four alumni who created the Credo of ZBT. After graduating, he worked for the Fraternity for 37 years, retiring as Executive Vice President Emeritus. His legacy is one of strong leadership, of rising to meet incredible challenges and of love for our Brotherhood.
