About the National Leadership Conference
The OΔK National Leadership Conference (NLC) offers collegiate members, as well as lifetime members at any stage in their career, an opportunity to gather and share in a leadership development experience. Now an annual event, the NLC brings together experienced members of the Society with those early in their journey. The NLC was completely online in 2021, but we plan to return to an in-person model in 2022, gathering in-person but also taking advantage of technology to share the event with members around the world.
- The tentative date for the 2022 conference is June 2-5, 2022, at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky.
- The tentative date for the 2023 conference is June 1-4 or 8-11, 2023.

The 2021 National Leadership Conference was entirely online. The Conference Planning Team created an interactive, yet virtual, experience for all members of OΔK. Sessions targeted at lifetime members were complemented by keynote speakers and special sessions for collegiate members and circle officers. This conference was truly for all members of the Society.
