Value For Your Dollar. You won't find another weekend that provides you more value for such a great price.

This is your opportunity to gain skills necessary to succeed on campus, in your chapter or colony and your chosen field. From business majors to fine art students to engineers and scientists, you will find value in developing your abilities as a Frater.

Network. Take advantage and interact with Fraters from all over TKE Nation.

You will have the chance to network and share ideas with Grand Council members, TEF Board Members, Local and Regional Based Volunteers as well as additional TKE VIP’s and the Fraternity Staff. We’ve created the space for you to grow your TKE experience with Fraters overcoming similar challenges on campus and in life to compare what has worked and how further successes can be attained.

Create Your Path. Customize your schedule and attend the sessions that interest you.

Whether you’ve just accepted a bid or a 50 year veteran of TKE service, Regional Leadership Conferences offer a chance to fulfill your obligation of brotherhood in the bond: to develop your abilities and contribute them. Join us at any of the four locations!.



"The networking opportunities were amazing. It was great to meet Fraters like Elmer Smith, Bob Barr, Buckwheat and Todd Farmer."

"I really enjoyed attending the RLC and took away a lot to help improve myself as an officer and to push my chapter toward a Top TKE award."

"I learned a lot of ideas to improve my chapter, and it was a great experience being surrounded by Tekes from all over the country."


There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

- Frater Ronald Reagan -

Frequently Asked Questions

We've enhanced the Regional Leadership Conferences this year. Here are the answers you need.

What is enhanced about Regional Leadership Conferences?

Responsive to your needs, we’ve aligned the program to exceed expectations. Regional Leadership Conferences will re-focus on developing a mix of leadership and management skills necessary for all TKE members.

For those starting their TKE journey, we provide opportunities to learn more about TKE Ritual, recruitment, and membership development programs such as the Blueprint. Want to learn more about what it takes to succeed beyond the classroom? We will provide education on personal finance, selling yourself or your ideas, and unlocking your potential through setting goals. The Regional Leadership Conferences will also focus on managing risk and promoting healthy habits. We’ve added sessions for those groups with large membership and sessions for those looking for help in growing to become a Top TKE Chapter. Lastly, the Alumni Engagement Team along with the Regional Directors will provide training for volunteers.

I went to a Province Forum. Why is the RLC different?

Province Forums are a half-day, drive-in event. Forums focus on the nuts and bolts of running a chapter or colony, specific to the local area. The RLC is built as the next level. We aim to take those skills and apply them as a leader in your group and your community. Also, Regional Leadership Conferences include catered meals such as the Grand Council Luncheon, VIP Networking Reception, two night hotel stay at a premier hotel property and two days of interaction with and instruction of TKE Volunteers, Professional Staff, Grand Council members and other TKE VIPs.

When Should I Arrive?

Registration will open at 4:30 p.m. local time on Friday. Opening events typically don't begin until 7 or 8 p.m. with ritual shortly there after. Feel free to enjoy the city!

I can't attend any longer. Can I get a refund?

Regional Leadership Conference registrations are transferable, not refundable. We can make name changes on-site without any issues.

What Should I Expect?

Expect to be challenged. Expect to get more from yourself the more you put in. Expect to meet TKE members from chapters and colonies all across TKE Nation. Expect to share what’s working on your campus and on theirs. Expect to have fun, responsibly. The RLC Event Schedule should help you understand what to expect at the Regional Leadership Conferences. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.

VIP Guests to Expect?

You can expect members from both the Grand Council and the TKE Educational Foundation Board. You can also expect TKE Staff and Volunteers. Guest speakers will be part of the festivities and in the past have included Order of the Golden Eagle winners, Past Grand Prytani, Past CEO’s of TKE, Grand Council members, TKE Educational Foundation Board members, and alumni who will share the path to their success & the role TKE has played in it.


How to Ritual and a full Ritual will occur on Friday evening. We will have an excellent team to initiate Fraters into our bond and allow us to reconnect with the principles of our fraternity. Think you are the best at ritual in TKE Nation? Inquire with your Regional Director to apply to be the ritual team at your RLC.


Formal ritual attire is required for Friday evening, and Saturday attire is business casual (polo or dress shirt and slacks). Please do not wear anything that can be considered offensive. You can be asked to change clothes or subject to removal from the hotel.

Special Projects

Your Special Projects Fund is money kept by the TKE Educational Foundation to support your chapter’s educational initiatives. Included in those initiatives are registration costs to TKE conferences, such as the Regional Leadership Conference. If you have alumni looking to donate and support their home chapter, utilize Special Projects as an outlet for tax-deductible donations to be made.

When you register for your RLC, your Special Projects Fund balance will appear on the payment page, and you can choose to utilize any or all of the money in that account, provided there is a $200 minimum balance available and is approved by your Board of Advisors Chairman.

Now is the time to start your fundraising campaign to bolster your account.

School Funding

Many colleges and universities set aside money in their student activities budget to support students in campus organizations who attend educational conferences. Don’t wait until December to look into this possibility.

Go to your Fraternity & Sorority Life or Student Government offices today and ask about financial support for the Regional Leadership Conference. Often times, all you have to do is fill out and application with the details of the conference, and your school will help offset some or all of the costs for you and your brothers to attend.

Chapter Credits

You may have noticed a ‘credits available’ line in your financial summary on the TKE Module. Chapter Credits can be added to your statement for various reasons and once added, they can be applied to outstanding invoices, including Regional Leadership Conference registrations. To utilize chapter credits, select it as a method of payment when you come to the final step in your registration. Our financial team will approve the usage of these credits, and you will have saved yourself and your chapter some money by upholding your financial obligations to the Fraternity.

Family Support

With Regional Leadership Conferences taking place just a month or two after Christmas, don’t forget to ask your family and friends to help you attend an event that will make you not only a better Frater, but a better man. You’ll find looking to make your chapter/colony, campus and community a better place is usually a cause worthy of financial backing from your parents, grandparents, and others close to you.
