Presidents' Academy 2019

  • Dates: Jan 11 2019 - Jan 13 2019
  • Location: St. Louis, MO

The 2019 Presidents’ Academy is located in St. Louis, MO. Presidents' Academy is a national training event for chapter presidents. It is primarily designed to equip collegiate chapter presidents to develop their leadership potential in a way that has immediate benefits to them personally, to the chapters they lead, and to the Fraternity as a whole.

EVENT DATE:
Friday, January 11- Sunday, January 13, 2019
Program starts at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and ends at noon on Sunday. 

REGISTRATION:
To start the registration process, chapter presidents should submit the “Presidents’ Academy Officer Selection” Form in the Hub before October 23. The form will let us know which nationally recognized officer will be attending Presidents’ Academy or that the chapter has not yet elected officers for January. All chapters must submit the form by the October 23 deadline. Once the chapter reports their chapter representative, the representative will receive further instructions to register for the 2019 Presidents’ Academy.

TRAVEL & HOTEL ARRANGEMENTS:

We are happy to announce that for the 2019 event, all registration fees, lodging expenses, reasonable travel and food during the event will be paid for by the national Fraternity and Leadership Foundation. (That means FREE for your chapter!) The chapter will still need to budget (approximately $100) for minimal incidental expenses such as airport parking, baggage fees and food to and from the conference. Once you register, Delta Sigma Pi's Travel Agent  will contact you to secure the most appropriate travel arrangements (flight, train, car, etc.) -- do NOT book your own travel.

CANCELLATION POLICY:
In the event you need to cancel your attendance at the Academy, you (the traveler) must contact the Fraternity’s Travel Agent immediately at via email or call 856-494-6490. It is the responsibility of the traveler to make certain that all airline, train, hotel, car and shuttle services are canceled. If the Travel Agent cannot be reached, the traveler must contact the airline/train, and Central Office Staff meeting host, as soon as possible.

If the airline ticket is nonrefundable, a credit will be issued in the traveler’s name for future travel on that airline minus the exchange fees. The credit is good for travel up to one year after the ticket issue date. 

The full cost of the airline ticket (train or other) as paid by Delta Sigma Pi will be due from the traveler within 30 days of cancellation.  If the traveler does not submit reimbursement of the cost to the Central Office within that 30 days, their respective chapter will be invoiced for the amount.

Special circumstances for cancellation will be considered on a case-by-case basis for emergency requests.
