The 2015 National Leadership Conference is all about developing creativity, prompting innovation and sparking inspiration to help you Strive for Greatness. Throughout the four-day conference, you will develop your leadership skills and explore new ways to address the challenges of your chapter. We’ve put together a full schedule to help you get the most out of your NLC experience!
Your trip to Indianapolis will start with a visit to ZTA International Office. You will take a tour, check out the archives, meet staff and National Officers, and have the opportunity to pose for pictures with your chapter’s flag and the Chain of Chapters.
Once everyone has arrived at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis, our home for the next four days, we’ll kick things off with the first General Session. Throughout the week you will attend general sessions with the entire NLC delegation. Collegians and National Officers will gather to hear from members of National Council and other awesome guest speakers. In these presentations, you will learn about the GREAT model that will guide your process for addressing your chapter’s challenges throughout the week.
In addition to the large group sessions, you will have an opportunity to dive deeper in your GREAT Group meetings. These small groups will challenge you to focus on a specific challenge that your chapter faces. You will use the GREAT model to Grow as a leader, examine your chapter’s Reality, Explore your options, pick the best Answer and Take Action by creating a concrete plan for reaching your goals. Your GREAT Group and National Officer facilitator will help you along the way by providing input and new ideas. By working with these women throughout NLC, you will develop relationships and a safe space to let your creativity soar as you strive to make your chapter greater than ever.
We come to NLC to work hard on improving ourselves and our chapters, but we also make time for fun and sisterhood! Throughout your visit, you will get to know sisters from around the country during meals and activities. You will enjoy a casual night of local entertainment on Friday and dress up to honor the accomplishments of our amazing chapters at the Crown Chapter dinner on Saturday. We’ll end the night with a ZLAM Jam celebration. Get ready to show off your best dance moves, enjoy delicious snacks and snap pictures in a photo booth with more than 600 of your sisters!
Your time in Indianapolis will be full of presentations that will inspire and challenge you to Strive for Greatness. You will have the opportunity to really focus on your chapter’s challenges and come up with new and innovative ways to improve your chapter and community. You will learn from ZTA leaders and walk away a stronger leader yourself. You will celebrate our amazing sisterhood and go back to your school in the fall refreshed and ready to make great changes for your chapter. We can’t wait!
