National Leadership Conference

The O∆K Annual National Leadership Conference begins in 2020.

Get ready for the 1st annual Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Conference (NLC).  O∆K’s largest event will be held annually starting in 2020. The change will require volunteers from the entire O∆K family. We will need to identify:

Host Locations: Details about bidding for the annual National Leadership Conference are now available. Consider bringing the NLC to your region or campus.

NLC Conference Planning Team (CPT) Chair:  We hope to identify the 2020 and 2021 CPT Chairs by January 15, 2019.  Applications and information will be available November 3, 2018.

NLC-CPT Leaders:  We will need 7-10 committee leaders to plan for registration, marketing, speakers, concurrent sessions, special events, housing and meals, and transportation.  Applications for these positions will be open in spring 2019.

All the planning will be for nothing if members do not attend.  Mark June 2020 and 2021 on your planning calendar now.  Start working with your circle to identify the resources and raise the funds to send at least two student leaders and one advisor – more if you can raise the cash – to this life-changing leadership opportunity.
