Up-and-coming leaders will expand their marketing skills and toolset, improve their on-campus recruitment program, and walk away with creative and engaging event ideas. These attendees will also have an opportunity to work on a national-level project that will benefit all members.

WHAT DOES THIS COST?

Attendance is free, but each attendee is responsible for booking their own travel. Estimated flight cost is $300 - $350.

One representative from each chapter will be reimbursed up to $350 from National's. In order to be reimbursed, flights must be booked by January 15. Flights booked on points will not be reimbursed. Exceptions must be requested via executivedirector@phigammanu.com.

For other attendees, work with your chapter to see if you are eligible to receive travel reimbursement or partial reimbursement.

National's will pay for up to two hotel rooms per school (for two nights) - that could include two quads (up to eight people). Beyond this, chapters will be responsible for paying for additional rooms.

All hotel rooms will be booked by National's and National's will provide food and beverages during the meeting events.
Upon hotel arrival, attendees will be required to show a photo ID and put down a card, where the hotel will put a “hold” of $100 as a security deposit.
