About this Event
Brothers of the Western Region,
The 13th Annual Western Region Leadership Academy & College Brother’s Retreat, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco on October 14-17, 2021. There will be a condensed virtual agenda option available for those that cannot attend in person.
The annual Western Region Leadership Academy & College Brother’s Retreat is a premier opportunity to invoke savvy thinking and instill tools to help us be better men and better Alphas. All members of the Western Region Leadership Team are expected to be in attendance. To align with prior WR Leadership Academies, each Alumni chapter shall have a minimum registration target of at least (2) brothers, and each college chapter shall have a minimum registration target of (1) brother. Please remember, these chapter-specific minimum registration targets are non-inclusive of brothers serving on the WR Leadership Team.
Chapter officers should make every effort to attend as IMDP training & certification, chapter compliance, and IMDP administrative tips and tools will be provided. A draft agenda will be available to view in the coming weeks.
Some social festivities will include a casual Thursday evening reception for all in-person attendees to kick off this year’s academy and retreat and nightly social gatherings to keep that Alpha spirit high.
Brothers may register for this year’s Leadership Academy & College Brothers Retreat and sponsor the registration fees for a college brother via Eventbrite.
