The AFA Annual Meeting

The Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors is comprised of professionals and volunteers who work on college campuses, work at a fraternity/sorority inter/national headquarters, work for businesses that support fraternity/sorority members and/or volunteer locally or nationally for their fraternity/sorority, or for organizations that support fraternities and sororities.

Two of the Association’s primary purposes are professional development and support for members and advocacy for the fraternity/sorority advising profession. The cultivation and consistent demonstration of these competencies are keys to success among professionals and volunteers who work with fraternities and sororities.

As a supporter and member of AFA, NPC representatives, including myself, attended the AFA annual meeting in St. Louis last week (Nov. 30 – Dec. 3). My experience at AFA was beneficial and here’s some points that outline why.

• Passion, dedication, engagement ... that's what I experienced when talking with the FSAs.

• Appreciation for the support NPC gives to College Panhellenics and FSAs.

• Desire for continued dialogue on NPC processes such as extension, recruitment and RFM.

• Enthusiasm for dialogue and partnership with the newly appointed NPC FSA Advisory Committee.

Thanks to all of the fraternity and sorority professionals who made this meeting a success, and thanks for all you do to advance the sorority experience.
