The Student Vice President Leadership Summit will bring together student vice presidents from chapters across the country to engage in activities that will strengthen their leadership skills and prepare them for their campus work on behalf of Phi Kappa Phi. The Summit will take place on July 14 and 15, 2017 with July 13 and July 16, 2017 as travel days.
The Summit will include workshops with Phi Kappa Phi staff which will highlight the Student Leadership Challenge, encouraging leadership development in all aspects of life. Participants will also learn strategies for bolstering visibility on campus for their chapter with the added benefit of networking with other student vice presidents.
Registration is open to the first 68 student vice presidents. Applications can be found here.
Chapters must nominate a student vice president with only one nomination per chapter. Chapters are also required to cover a $250 non-refundable registration fee. Travel, meals at the Summit, and double-occupancy accommodations will be arranged by the Society.
Room and tax for all guests will be routed to the master account, but incidental charges will be the responsibility of the individual guests. Upon check in, each attendee will be required to present a valid credit card, on which any incidental fees will be charged.
Applications for this opportunity will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until May 15th, 2017.

Testimonials from the 2015 Summit:
I cannot stress enough how beneficial this Summit was for me! The ability to hear what other chapters are doing or have done to improve was valuable and I took some ideas away that I plan to implement at Murray State. -Jaime Staengel, Murray State University
Being able to network with other student vice presidents from across the country and understanding that we are all going through common things within our chapter was valuable. I really feel like the seminars made a huge impact on the way that I view/understand leadership. -Charlene Gallagher, California State University, Stanislaus
The most valuable aspect was the opportunity to collaborate with other student vice presidents so that I could share what my college is doing compared to others. -Matthew Leverich, Nazareth College
Not only was this Summit extremely informative, but it also gives student vice presidents the motivation they need to go and make progress at their chapters. -Cameron Sargent, Brigham Young University
As a completely new chapter, I feel this was the best way to integrate our chapter into the larger mission of PKP. I now feel I can go back to my campus and be an informed, directed, knowledgeable voice in implementing the mission of PKP at my school. -Tyler Platz, St. Norbert College
