For the past two years we have sponsored an active member to attend the Southeastern Greek Leadership Summit, this year we are proud to have had Maggie Li from the University of Connecticut as the Kappa Phi Lambda student representative at the summit. We also had one of our very own, Victoria Chan, an alumnae from Syracuse University host a presentation on #RealTalk, social media, and Angela Lei (National Vice President), and alumnae from St. John’s University help on the SEGLS planning committee as the Marketing Coordinator.
This entire weekend has been a great eye opening experience! From the keynote speakers, to the educational workshops, there is so much material I can take back to my chapter and council to become better and more unified.
My favorite workshop was the one held by Joshua Fredenburg, “Is your Greek Organization Built to Continue the Positive Legacy?” Every organization takes pride in their traditions and wishes to continue the legacy and traditions of their organization. However, as our generation is continuously changing, organizations should also be up for change. During this workshop, Josh challenged us to look at our vision, and the vision of our founders, or do we even have a vision or direction. Sometimes we lose ourselves in pride and traditions, that we lose our vision. Vision is needed to reach your fullest potential, to be a great leader. I learned to be a better leader, to make an impact; I need to rethink my goals and create a vision. I found this workshop very moving because we all have little goals that we would like to achieve, however if we don’t have a clear and concise vision of what we want to reach, our goals will never be accomplished.
I am excited to go back to my campus and use all the knowledge I have gained from this conference. It was a great reminder to work hard, and you’ll see your vision become reality, “if your work ethic doesn’t match you dream, then the only times you’ll see your dream is in your sleep”. I can’t wait for next year’s summit!
