STEP ONE : IGNITE
gnite is for the newly initiated member who is looking to take an active role in the Fraternity. He will want to connect with brothers from across the country, and begin to define what his legacy will be as an undergraduate member. At Ignite, he will also look at how the values of the Fraternity can help him become a more well-rounded leader.
STEP TWO: DIVISION CONFERENCES
Delta Tau Delta chapters are divided into five geographic divisions. Every winter, members gather in a place chosen within their division to celebrate the Fraternity, brotherhood and learn skills to help lead their chapters.
At division conferences, you can talk to brothers who hold the same position at other chapters and learn essential skills and discuss best practices. The Fraternity provides meaningful programming focused on traditional needs and chapter operational issues.
STEP THREE: PRESIDENTS AND ADVISORS RETREAT
The working relationship between a chapter president and the chapter advisor is critical to success. Having trust in one another and the ability to collaborate is necessary to lead the chapter. This vigorous retreat offers attendees an opportunity to build a supportive network of presidents and advisors from chapters across the country.
STEP FOUR: KARNEA
Karnea is Delta Tau Delta Fraternity’s biennial convention, hosted in cities across North America. Delts from across the globe gather together to celebrate Fraternity in the glow of brotherhood. Karnea is meant as both a learning opportunity and a chance to conduct the business of the Fraternity. There are educational programs throughout Karnea to benefit both undergraduates and alumni. Social events during Karnea highlight the host city’s specific entertainment, as well as networking opportunities to build brotherhood between undergraduates and alumni. Karnea is concluded with a celebratory banquet and the election of the new Arch Chapter.
STEP FIVE: THE CHARGE
The Charge is a five day experience currently taking place in Chicago. Throughout the week we will look at what goals you want to accomplish professionally, personally and analyze what roles you want to have in your community. Each day at The Charge men are given tasks to complete in the city of Chicago. Similar to the NBC show, The Apprentice, participants are given a budget, objectives they need to meet and a time frame to complete each task. The week concludes by completing a five year personal, strategic plan. You will also have time to sit down one-on-one with an alumnus from Delta Tau Delta who is a leader in his own industry. They will provide feedback on your plan and help you examine how the Fraternity can help you reach your goals.
