Chapter Leaders Day Registration is open.
Chapter Leaders Day (CLD) will be virtual this year on February 5. With the virtual platform we will be using, there will still be many opportunities to meet leaders from other chapters to network and share best practices.
The required attendance for one day is Prior, Vice Prior, Exchequer, Recorder, Candidate Educator, and Recruitment Chair. Attendance at CLD is a criterion in the Chapter Performance Report. Please make sure you have the required officers register and attend the entire conference (attendance will be tracked).

“Enhanced my ability to think about ethical concerns and gained knowledge about the access I have to resources that can help when making decisions that concern my Chapter.”
“Communication and decision making skills”
