About the President's Academy
The President’s Academy is an innovative program occurring in January that is designed for developing leadership skills for Presidents. All chapters who were not selected to attend the Better Man Weekend are required to send their President to the President’s Academy. Selected chapters can be found here. Attendance is mandatory; no substitutions, proxies, or committee members are permitted. The date for President’s Academy 2017 is January 20 – 22, 2017.
The program is about learning the essentials skills needed to serve as President and building brotherhood. We aim to provide relevant and engaging sessions. The Presidents will participate in a track designed specifically to meet their needs. This is not your traditional lecture session; most sessions are interactive and discussion based allowing participants to be involved and engaged. Brotherhood events are scheduled in the evening for you to meet and learn from members of other chapters as well as build brotherhood.
Alpha Sigma Phi is one of the few international fraternities that provides a weekend-long opportunity to train officers. Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity is the only international fraternity to offer this type of program with no registration cost and minimal transportation costs (if registered by the deadline).
The President’s Academy provides our men the opportunity to develop position-based skills they can use when they return to their campuses to create positive change for their chapters and fraternity and sorority communities. The President’s Academy provides participants with the skills and training necessary for them to not only successfully meet the duties of their position, but to excel beyond them.

"I've had the great fortune to participate in a number of leadership programs since getting to Chico State, but I've never been to one like this before.
