Training Snapshots

The 2013-2014 Leadership Consultants have been at Executive Office in Atlanta, GA for two weeks now. It is surreal actually living in Executive Office after touring our headquarters for the first time in February 2012.

Seven of us are staying in the Bunk Room, which feels just like being at summer camp except we train from 9AM to 9PM instead of kayaking in a lake and eating s’mores.


We have already covered a ton of information to prepare us our travels: finance training, National Panhellenic Council Release Figure Method, standards appeals process, recruitment and marketing, total membership education, Alpha Delta Pi Foundation, philanthropy training, parliamentary procedure, and District Team Director training. To help us keep track of everything we’re learning we received an awesome new iPad! To make things even more official I now have my first business nametag and business cards!

The Consultants are hard at work, but we do have some down time to explore Atlanta. We have two huge mini vans – super hip, I know – that we affectionately named the “Swaggin’ Wagon” and “Stow ‘n Go.”

Last Tuesday we hopped in the minivans and drove over to Macon, GA to learn about the founding of Alpha Delta Pi at Wesleyan College. Wesleyan College was the first college to grant women degrees and Alpha Delta Pi - then known as the Adelphean Society - was the first ever secret society for women. It is a privilege to be a small part of such a rich history!

On Thursday, to celebrate Logan and Morgan’s birthday, we went to the Atlanta Braves game against the Colorado Rockies :)

There are still a few days of training left, but I can’t wait to get to Oklahoma and meet the women at Theta Xi!
