2020 Regional Leadership Alliances

Chi Phi will be hosting eight RLAs in regions across the country during the spring of 2020.

Through surveys conducted over the past several years, participants have expressed a desire for a one-day format to simplify participation and travel arrangements. We are pleased to announce that the 2020 RLAs will be adopting this one-day format. Each program will be held on Saturday from 8:30am-6:00pm. Click here to view a tentative schedule.

Each RLA will now have “tracks” which participants can follow to better develop their skills in certain areas. Our 2020 tracks are Education, Outreach, Finances, Risk Management, Recruitment, and Ritual.

If your Chapter/Colony has any questions about the program, please contact Danny Zayas at zayas@chiphi.org.

Below is a brief summary of the upcoming 2020 RLA schedule. Please scroll further to see details for each event as they become available. Check back frequently for updates.
