Below is information on upcoming meetings and events from the National Panhellenic Conference.
College Panhellenic Academy
The 2021 College Panhellenic Academy will be held Jan. 22-23 in Indianapolis. For details, visit the College Panhellenic Academy page on this website.
NPC Annual Educational Conference
The 2020 NPC Annual Educational Conference will be held Oct. 29-31 at The Galt House in Louisville, Kentucky. Please save the date!
We expect to begin the NPC Conference with orientation and a keynote late in the afternoon on Thursday, Oct. 29, and it will end with lunch on Oct. 31. We will post a draft schedule in late March.
2020 Educational Focus
The 2020 NPC Conference education sessions will focus on two areas of the NPC advocacy building blocks: Women’s-Only Experience and Citizenship & Service. This focus will allow NPC to highlight advocacy (i.e., public policy, partnerships and campus advocacy) work and programming within the sorority community, as well as host presenters and facilitators from other organizations who have confronted similar challenges that NPC organizations face today (e.g., relevancy of women’s-only organizations/spaces, changing demographics, stereotyping).
By focusing content in these two areas, we expect NPC Conference participants to:
- Be better able to tell the story of why sorority membership and the women’s-only experience remains relevant to today’s collegiate women.
- Be more comfortable engaging with advocacy topics and in advocacy work on behalf of the sorority experience.
- Be more effective in their daily work and in serving their organization in advancing the sorority experience.
- Have a clearer understanding of how women’s-only sororities can address challenges and opportunities in the fraternal and higher education landscape.
Participants will also have time to network and build relationships–with other organizational volunteers and staff, industry experts and partner organizations–that can help our organizations work better together.
Our intent is that this more focused approach will enable member organizations to better identify which volunteers and staff would best benefit from this educational and professional development opportunity. We encourage member organizations to send as many volunteers and staff as possible, and a suggested list of those individuals is below.
Registration will open in July.
Based on the educational focus, NPC suggests the following attendees:
- NPC directors and NPC volunteers (e.g., committee chairmen, committee members including area advisors and area coordinators, and subject matter experts).
- NPC member organization inter/national presidents, executive directors, delegates and chief panhellenic officers.
- Emerging leaders or other member organization volunteers and staff who have responsibility for championing the sorority experience and/or for service activities.
- Partners and leaders from throughout the interfraternal community.
Once again, grants made by the NPC Foundation and other generous partners will allow us to offer high quality education sessions at a more reasonable cost. Exact registration costs have not yet been set but we expect 2020 costs to be similar to the 2019 event.
Rooms will be available at The Galt House at the conference rate of $159 + tax/per night. A room block will be available Oct. 25-Nov. 3. Instructions for making hotel reservations will be included with the registration email.
