Program 1

Presidents' Academy of Leadership

Being a leader is more about attitude than position, more about
responsibility than authority. Today, success relies heavily on a
person's ability to lead themselves through the moral and ethical
pitfalls of modern society. When a person has mastered their own
ability to make values-based decisions, others will more easily follow
their lead.

The Presidents' Academy of Leadership is designed for the leaders of
chapters, colonies, and interest groups. The Academy is held in an
environment that allows participants to share thoughts, feelings and
information, and to build confidence to face the sometimes lonely task
of leading with integrity in surroundings that have not always welcomed
such ideas.

Program 2

Ralph F. Burns Leadership Institute

The Ralph F. Burns Leadership Institute is a highly intense experience
for all involved, conducted at five regional locations across the
country. Not only will this experience be memorable, it will also
capture the spirit and excitement that surround our Fraternity.

The Institute was designed to reflect the qualities and characteristics
of the man for whom it is named. Ralph F. Burns, Ohio Wesleyan ’32, was
a man of Silence, Charity, Purity, Honor, and Patriotism in its truest
form. We hope you’ll leave the weekend with a new appreciation for him
and for what the Fraternity can bring to your life.

LeaderShape

In congruence with the Fraternity's Vision and Purpose, Alpha Sigma Phi
is proud to offer scholarships each year to undergraduates who would
like to attend a national session of The LeaderShape Institute at the
Allerton Conference Center in Monticello, Illinois, approximately 25
miles southwest of Champaign, Illinois.

The scholarships, valued at $1,450, cover conference materials, meals,
lodging, and transportation or travel reimbursement. Previous
LeaderShape attendees are not eligible.

The LeaderShape Institute is an interactive, energizing, and unique
experience that builds leadership skills no other program can match.
Since 1986, over 20,000 participants from all over the world have
graduated from the program. But be prepared! It is six days of non-stop
self-discovery and learning from practical experiences that build your
leadership concepts and abilities. Its go, go, go 12 hours a day ...
the participants love it!

Program 4

Chapter Advance

Chapter Advance is a new program developed by Fraternity Headquarters,
much like a chapter retreat that was designed to assist our Brothers in
becoming better men. Chapter Advance is made possible by a grant from
the Alpha Sigma Phi Educational Foundation.

Your members will cultivate new ideas, discover
how to build upon their strengths and the strengths of others, and make
possible a future that is relevant for tomorrow's undergraduate men.
