All Chapter and Colony Presidents
Three Days of Intense Personal Development
Answering the Call of Principled Leadership
Miller Nichols Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy
The award-winning Miller Nichols Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy (CPLA) provides an opportunity for all chapter and colony presidents to visit the Fraternity's founding site in Oxford, Ohio. What follows is three days of intense leadership training and networking with other undergraduate presidents. This program concentrates on personal and chapter leadership.
Presidents learn to become more effective leaders, develop personal officer goals and design a framework for chapter success. The curriculum also includes reviewing Standard Chapter Operating Expectations and networking with top university professionals, General Fraternity volunteers and Administrative Office staff.
The Presidents Academy was named and endowed by the Miller Nichols Charitable Foundation in memory of Miller Nichols, Kansas '33.
This program received the HRH Fellow for Educational Program Development Award from the Fraternity Executives Association (2005), the Most Outstanding Use of a Foundation Grant Award from the North-American Interfraternity Conference (2005) and the Excellence in Educational Programming Award from the Association of Fraternity Advisors (2006).
In an effort to better meet the needs of the Beta membership and to be flexible and adaptable in a changing environment, CPLA will be hosted in an online format for 2021.
Beta Theta Pi is committed to providing best-in-class training and comprehensive support for chapter presidents. Upon their election, each president will receive specialized training via an online learning series supported by staff and volunteers.
