WORKSHOP BLOCK 1:
Improving Your Brand - Chris Kelly - Balkans - Call it a brand, image or reputation ... the fact is we all have one. A brand is easy to acquire but difficult to change. Chris will offer some easy and inexpensive tips on improving your organization's brand during this interactive session. A must for anyone responsible for your group's public relations.
Recruitment – David Stollman - Ballroom - Learn the chapter plan that has doubled and tripled fraternities and sororities in only a semester! The plan integrates a “values based” recruitment program into regular chapter operations so that we don’t over-program our members. Real recruitment isn’t about “stalking”, freshmen we don’t know it IS about targeted networking with the men and women we should call sisters and brothers. Quantity and Quality are not mutually exclusive. Learn how to get BOTH!
Time Management – Ashley Conyers - Varsity - Being a member of a Greek organization requires excellent time management skills. In this presentation we will give you the tools to manage your time effectively, prioritize your involvement, and find a system that works for you to keep track of your commitments.
Fraternity & Sorority 101 - Christian Cruz - Governors - New members: come learn more about Greek life and the amazing decision you've made by joining a sorority or fraternity!
Guiding New Members - Sunflower - Are you a new member of your organization? This workshop will teach the fundamentals of being an enthusiastic, contributing brother or sister. This program will cover topics such as: how to be involved on campus, how to maintain good Greek relations, and the importance of brotherhood or sisterhood.
Impacting Lives Through Chance Encounters – Dr. Julie Samuels - Inaugural - On a daily basis we are connected with people by chance. It is what we choose to do with these chance encounters that will make the biggest difference in our lives and the lives of others. This presentation will address ways in which you can make the most of each chance encounter.
Dance Marathon - Austin Osborn & Julia Sammur - Prairie - Learn about this event.
WORKSHOP BLOCK 2:
How to be a SUPER Senior - Emily Smith - Inaugural - You've got a mad case of senior-itis, at least six
projects all due by Dead Week, and on top of that there's a run-out tonight! This program is aimed at helping you balance your senior year while still getting the most out of your chapter. Don't be the senior that falls into the background, use your wisdom to help the chapter grow one last year and leave a lasting legacy.
Let's get RITUAL! - Lauren Peel - Varsity - One thing we share in common as Greeks is the depth and meaning behind our ritual services. This program will help you and your members get the most out of your ritual services.
Do The Gorilla Thing: The Real Story About Campus Alcohol - JT Knoll & Gorillas in Your Midst - Grubbs 109 - Every year, many senseless deaths of college students occur while these students are partying. This presentation will focus on how to party smart and how to keep you and your friends safe while out having fun.
Living Healthy - Bryce Winklepleck - Balkans - Learn what is necessary to stay healthy. Eating the right foods and doing the right exercises can all help in improving your quality of life.

Career Services - David Hogard - Governors - his session will explain all of the services offered by Career Services including resumes, interviewing, and Gorillas4Hire.
Money, Money, Money.... MONEY - David Stollman - Ballroom - Do you find that you can’t accomplish what you wish you could in your chapter or council simply because of a lack of funds? There are lots of ways to get things done with limited funds through better collections, partnerships, sponsorships, bartering and fundraising. You can even earn 5% of what your chapter members spend on textbooks! Learn how to get what is actually owed, and how to accomplish more, with less money.
