Does Your Regional Conference Stimulate You?

I recently received an invitation to attend the 2012 AFLV Conference. The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) exists to stimulate the growth and development of fraternity/sorority councils and chapters by promoting leadership, educational, and values based experiences and resources for student leaders, their advisors, and the larger fraternal market. The conference is attended by professional GLO student advisors; student life administrators, and coordinators for student development.
