Welcome to Leadership Seminar, ladies! I hope your first evening was wonderful and you’ve already gotten to meet a lot of new sisters. I got to meet some very exciting women earlier this week: my fellow 2012-2013 Leadership Consultants!
After months of Facebooking and tweeting, waiting to meet each other, the nine of us were finally together at Memorial Headquarters on Tuesday. Our first task in Atlanta was to shoot a video for Alpha education in the upcoming year. Be sure to look for us on Bid Day! We also had the pleasure of dining with Grand Council that evening and, of course, staying up to the wee hours of the morning getting to know one another.

We met with Mrs. Beth Mannle at Memorial Headquarters on Wednesday morning to discuss our individual personalities and strengths. This session was a perfect introduction to consultant training because we learned so much about one another and were able to share our most influential chapter experiences.
That afternoon, we arrived at the Renaissance Concourse and had another session with Mrs. Lindy Lutz Cash on image, including individual perceptions and chapter branding. Mrs. Cash shared some great activities for us to try with chapters, so you might get to see one or two this year!
Thursday was another busy day, as we met with Mrs. Tracy Carson in the morning to discuss our upcoming year and how to stay healthy on the road, both mentally and physically and in maintaining our relationships. Those of you attending Adelphean Compass will have the privilege of hearing Mrs. Carson speak, and trust me: she is a great presenter!
Finally, Mrs. Beth Wright gave us an overview of the Release Figure Method. We had a million questions and learned so much about the inner workings of recruitment and the methods used at different schools. This was a very important session because our first visits this fall will be all about recruitment, and we definitely want the right tools to help each chapter be as successful as possible.
Thursday evening, the Leadership Consultants participated in the sister mixer and dinner with the chapter presidents, advisors and International Officers, and we will be participating in the regular Adelphean Compass programming for the rest of the weekend. Please come say hi if you see us, and follow us on Twitter for updates of our experience (see handles below)!
|Can't you tell we like hugs! you might get one if we come|
