RLC 2021 Schedule

Recruitment Leadership Conference: Saturday, January 16

Recruitment is the lifeblood of our Fraternity. It is at the heart of everything we do. And while 2020 presented new challenges and may have left some chapters short of their goals, there is a tremendous opportunity and potential in what we can still accomplish this school year. The Recruitment Leadership Conference will focus on how to build relationships and recruit in the virtual climate, how to set and achieve our recruitment goals, and what we can do to set ourselves up for membership growth in a post-COVID world.

Each region of TKE Nation faces its own unique challenges, now more than ever. And while we can’t all be together in person, meeting and learning from one another, we can still spend time with the other Fraters from our neck of the woods, focused on the role our region plays in The Expectation of Excellence. Spend one of four Thursday evenings with us, talking about brotherhood, sharing feedback with the TKE Regional staff, and taking a look at what is left to accomplish in the winter and spring.
