Presidents Leadership Academy

The James E. Greer, Jr. Presidents Leadership Academy is one of the Fraternity’s premier leadership programs. The program is intended to be an intensive leadership development program which 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/colony success and grow as a leader who can effectively manage his peers.
