ZeteCon19 – Leadership Training Institute Sessions

LTI Course Directory

One of the most important aspects of any Zeta Psi Convention is our three-day schedule of LTI sessions. This year’s sessions will place special emphasis on development; development of one’s chapter, development of one’s career, and development of one’s character. Alongside Zeta Psi’s own educational programming will be a number of guest speakers credentialed in various areas of expertise. This year’s slate of LTI sessions are:

  • Leadership and Organizational Development (LOD) 102 – Membership Skill Identification & Development – Looking to turn the interests and skills of current members into results for the chapter? Membership Skill Identification & Development will teach you the best way to leverage your members’ current skillsets for both the internal and external development of your chapter.
  • LOD 103 – Recruitment I: Basic Recruitment Strategy – Learn the basics of fraternity recruitment, from selling potential members on your chapter to recognizing the real interest level of potential members. Perfect for new members.
  • LOD 206 – Greek Philanthropy
  • LOD 209 – Changing Chapter Culture – At what point do chapter issues become indicative of an underlying cultural problem in the chapter? More importantly, how can we properly address toxic chapter culture in a productive manner? This session focuses on the various management techniques that we can utilize in order to help initiate positive changes in chapter culture.
  • Networking and Career Development (NCD) 104 – Introduction to Social Media Networking – Social media websites can be an excellent tool to build your professional network and explore employment opportunities, but only if used properly.

  • Risk Management and Law (RML) 103 – Developing Collaborative Risk Management Policy – While RML101 establishes Zeta Psi’s international risk management policy, Developing a Collaborative Risk Management Policy will assist chapters in creating their personal risk management policy.
