Apply to be a 2015 ELA Mock Chapter Advisor
By Dustin Brann
This past June, Kappa Alpha Order hosted the largest Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA) with over 260 brothers gathering in Lexington, Virginia. ELA offers three unique learning opportunities Mock Chapter, Educational Track Sessions, and the Leadership Session Series.
The Mock Chapter Experience allows participants to be placed in small groups to learn how to operate as an active chapter. Through officer elections to creating a term plan for the chapter, Mock Chapter members worked together on their Model Chapter application, which is similar to the National Awards Application. Twenty-one Mock Chapters were challenged to learn the officer positions, function as an active chapter, and learn top-notch chapter operations.
Outstanding leaders in the Order were selected through an application process to serve as Mock Chapter Advisors.
