                  Welcome to Atlanta!
As Alpha Kappa Psi enters its 107th year, the dream of our Founders is alive
and well. How proud they would be to see the progress we are making toward
realizing our vision of becoming “the premier developer of principled busi-
ness leaders”.

The program this year offers a diverse range of educational opportunities de-
signed to help you become a principled business leader. The more you put into
this Principled Business Leadership Institute the more you will take away.

Besides your opportunity to learn more about successful chapter operations
and individual leadership skills, there is a wonderful opportunity to share in
the brotherhood that is unique to Alpha Kappa Psi. Represented at this Prin-
cipled Business Leadership Institute are members from diverse backgrounds,
unique chapter experiences and individual personalities. Take time to meet
the brothers from other chapters and share your AKPsi experiences. You will
be a more fulfilled individual for stepping outside the realm of your chapter
and becoming a part of the bigger AKPsi brotherhood.

Thank you for participating in Principled Business Leadership Institutes
2011. I remain…..

In U-- and I--,

 Even in uncertain economic times, there are guaranteed ways to make a

                 brother members is the expected norm

                                  ............................................................Ravinia Ballroom
                                  Alpha Kappa Psi members are tied together by the bonds of brother-
                                  hood. Join together to experience a recommitment ritual and to
                                  show your chapter pride. After the ritual, attendees of the Principled
                                  Business Leadership Institute will gather to celebrate Alpha Kappa
                                  Psi by participating in a roll call. One by one, chapters will be called
                                  upon to “introduce themselves” to the group. Introductions are to
                                  be no longer than one minute and could be a chant, cheer, dance
                                  or even a school’s fight song! It’s a chance to let the creativity of our
                                  members shine!

                                  The beginning portion of Pride Night is closed to members only.
                                  Brothers will be asked for the fraternal handshake and password
                                  upon entering the room. Those non-members in attendance are
                                  asked to gather in outside the meeting for an informal meet and
                                  greet. Once the ritual portion of Pride Night has concluded, non-
                                  members will be invited to join the roll call.

                                AKPsi chapters, like any successful business, aren’t static bodies.
                                Constantly changing in size, makeup, experience, and reputation, the
                                life of an AKPsi chapter is dynamic and can be completely different
                                from one semester to the next. Many chapters don’t recognize that
                                while they’re still responsible for managing standard operations
                                they’re also required to manage growth, deal with personnel issues,
                                and strategically plan for the future. This session will provide best
                                practices to not only properly run your chapter’s “normal” opera-
                                tions, but also offer ways to deal with issues which aren’t taught at
                                officer training, including optimizing your chapter’s organizational
                                structure, managing a diverse set of individuals and planning for the
                                future beyond your current membership.

                                Three things you’ll take away from this session:
                                1.   Learn what type of structure best suits each chapter;
                                2.   Learn strategies to conquer the “unspoken” issues we all face
                                     but are not taught to deal with at officer training; and
                                3.   Understand how can we position ourselves now to achieve
                                     excellence in the future.

                                Negotiation skills are a very important skill regardless of what you
                                intend to do. If you think back to your day you constantly negotiate
                                with friends on where to go for the night, significant other as to what
                                movie to watch or even teachers and your future grade. This skill
                                you practice today will transcend into your ability to make business
                                decisions happen, improve sales or create a vision for your team. Life
                                is all about give and take relationships and this session is going to
                                focus on this silent art. When you leave this session you will be able
                                to negotiate multimillion dollar deals like Donald Trump.

                                Three things you’ll take away from this session:
                                1.   Understand the nine steps to a deal;
                                2.   Learn how to overcoming obstacles you might encounter; and
                                3.   Learn how to create a win-win situation for all parties involved.

                                                                                                        cont.

                                 Risk: we are practically hard-wired to crave it. It is one of the most
                                 basic elements of human nature. The excitement leading up to and
                                 the feeling of success once you have overcome a major achievement
                                 is why adrenaline junkies are doing crazy things. It is why we want
                                 to do crazy stunts that often get ourselves and others emotionally or
                                 physically hurt.

                                 In AKPsi, you want to ensure that you are taking appropriate risks
                                 that are challenging and rewarding, without hazing or alcohol abuse,
                                 in order to have a fulfilling brother experience that shapes the future
                                 of principled business leadership.

                                 Three things you’ll take away from this session:
                                 1.   Understand how risk management supports a strong chapter;
                                 2.   See the contrast between hazing practices and professionalism
                                      to prevent hazing; and
                                 3.   Understand the hazing and alcohol link.

                                 about anything that you’ve ever wanted to know. Attend this session
                                 and meet recruiters from different industries to find out the things
                                 you’ll never learn in a book or online! In this session, you’ll get to
                                 flip the interview and ask our panel of recruiters, the answers will
                                 give you the edge on your next interview. Bad interviewing habits,
                                 pet peeves, what can set you apart from other applicants and how
                                 to handle tough situations are just some of the topics that will be
                                 covered. At the end of the session you’ll also have a chance to mingle
                                 and speak with the recruiters. Come prepared with some great ques-

                                 2.   Gain insight of what will set you apart from other applicants
                                      when applying for an internship or job; and
                                 3.   Learn about business etiquette before, during, and after an interview.

                         In a world filled with white noise and fast-talking executives, some-
                         times we delude ourselves into thinking that we, too, have to shout
                         to be heard. In session one of Track II, Alpha Kappa Psi has partnered
                         with the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership to highlight an-
                         other essential soft skill for the emerging leader in business: listening.

                         Three things you’ll take away from this session:
                         1.   Learn to use your listening skills to become relevant and successful;
                         2.   Learn how to collect the information you need from your col-
                              leagues and customers; and
                         3.   Understand how to listen more deeply, more broadly and more
                              often—and listen to the things you don’t want to hear.

                        In almost every organization today, people are the most important
                        resource. One of the most important roles of the leader is to develop
                        one’s colleagues—the organization’s human resources. It is a snow-
                        ball effect: when your colleagues grow, the capacity of the organiza-
                        tion grows. When the capacity of the organization grows, it is more
                        likely to succeed. In session two of the Track II curriculum, Rob will
                        discuss the important skill of developing your colleagues.

                        Three things you’ll take away from this session:
                        •    Learn the difference between and the benefit of coaching
                             versus controlling;
                        •    Understand how to create a workplace in which people can do
                             good work; and
                        •    Learn how to create an individual development plan for long-
                             term success in business.

                               To close the institute portion of the Principled Business Leadership
                               Institute, we will wrap up the day with a session devoted to the
                               individual’s leadership style. When we think about leadership and
                               becoming a better and more equipped leader, the first step is to
                               understand who we are as people. What are our likes, dislikes, quirks,
                               and most importantly, what are our values? As members of a values-
                               based organization, we have good insight into our core values, but
                               how do we incorporate that in to our leadership style? This session
                               will help you to understand how the values of AKPsi fit into your
                               personal leadership style.

                              governance
As a pledge, many of you memorized the names of people you have never met. At fraternity and
regional meetings, you see these alumni volunteers at head tables, wearing lots of ribbons, receiv-
ing awards, serving as masters of ceremony and so on. Occasionally you have the opportunity to
meet them but most of the student members of Alpha Kappa Psi really don’t know who they are
or what they do for our fraternity.

Alpha Kappa Psi is a volunteer organization. Unlike a corporation that has many employees, the
fraternity only has 13 employees. The work of the fraternity is so extensive that those 13 people
could never get the job done. So, volunteers are recruited for a multitude of tasks including the
governance of the fraternity. There are five main groups of people that make Alpha Kappa Psi run
smoothly. They are the board of directors of the fraternity, the board of directors of the foundation,
the management team, the regional management team and the staff.

The Chapter Congress is the supreme governing body of our fraternity. It is composed of voting
delegates from each student and alumni chapter. The duties of the Chapter Congress are to consider
and vote on amendments to the Constitution and Statutory Code as well as the Articles of Incorpora-
tion. In addition, the Chapter Congress sets the fees of the student members and elects the fraternity
officers and the Fraternity Board of Directors. All of this takes place at the Chapter Congress meeting
that is held at the Convention every two years with the exception of the election of the board of
directors that takes place annually through a mail ballot to all chapter delegates.

The Fraternity Board of Directors is composed of nine alumni members elected by the delegates
from all chapters for terms of three years. The board then elects its officers which are the chairman,
vice chairman, treasurer and secretary. The responsibility of the board of directors is to set policies
and procedures that will guide the fraternity into the future. It acts as the supreme governing body
of the fraternity between meetings of the Chapter Congress. It is charged with approving a budget,
annual goals of the fraternity, overseeing the performance of the chief executive officer and, most
importantly, strategic planning. In strategic planning, the board takes input from members through
a variety of sources and determines our core values as an organization, our vision for the future and
our mission, or why we exist. Further, it is charged with the responsibility of measuring how our pro-
grams assist the chapters and members to reach our mission. The board is the big picture strategic
thinkers of the organization much like the board of a corporation. The chairman of the board is the
highest ranking volunteer in the fraternity. The chairman presides over meetings of the board and
strategic planning sessions, appoints strategic and board committees and makes major decisions
effecting policy and operational procedure.

The Management Team is the volunteer operational arm of the organization. It is composed of
the fraternity president, executive vice president and regional directors. It is charged with the
responsibility of servicing the chapters of the fraternity within the guidelines of policies and
procedures set forth by the board of directors. The fraternity president serves as the chair-
man of the management team, presides over meetings of the Chapter Congress and appoints
operational committees.
 42 2011Atlanta




The regional management team is composed of the regional director, sectional directors, regional
managers and chapter advisors. Its responsibility is to work with chapter leaders to improve the
quality of the undergraduate experience. The key to chapter success is an effective long-term chapter
advisor who is actively involved with the regional management team.

The regional director is charged with the specific responsibility of ensuring a quality student ex-
perience through effective chapter operations. The regional director is the first line supervisor of
chapters, chapter officers and chapter advisors

Now wait a minute. Where does this foundation come into play? The Alpha Kappa Psi Foundation is
a separate corporation organized to accept contributions from members and corporations. These
contributions are NOT tax deductible if they are given to the fraternity or its chapters. They are,
however, deductible if they are given to the foundation. These contributions fund all of our scholar-
ships and the Academy. The governing body of the foundation is its board of directors. It is charged
with the responsibility of setting polices and strategies, fundraising goals and plans, an operational
budget and overall vision of the foundation.

And finally, there is the professional staff. These individuals are the only paid employees of the frater-
nity. Their salary, insurance, retirement plans, taxes and other benefits account for about 45% of the
Alpha Kappa Psi operational budget. The chief executive officer has similar duties to other corporate
CEOs. He is charged with the day-to-day operations of the fraternity and foundation, supervision
of the staff, meeting goals and objectives, and ensuring the financial integrity of the organizations
within budgets approved by the boards. He is also the main individual charged with leading the
organization, overseeing the management team and providing the boards with the information
they need to do their jobs. The big picture is his primary responsibility. To assist in the operations of
the fraternity and foundation a number of directors and clerical staff are employed to head certain
areas of operations. These areas include finances, expansion, education, foundation fundraising and
programs, meetings, members services, training, alumni services and information services.

When you meet these people hopefully you will understand what they do and how they assist your
chapter in providing a better experience. If you don’t believe they do, tell the CEO and he will help
you. Our mission is for you to have a great student experience and continue that experience as a
loyal alumnus during the remainder of your life.
