About the 2019 Burns Institute

The Burns Leadership Institute is a weekend-long program for emerging leaders in the Fraternity to learn more about what it means to be a leader and how they can help their chapters be successful. Selected chapters will send at least 50% of their new member class to one of three locations on January 18-20, 2019. The program will be taking place in Atlanta, Indianapolis, and St. Louis. The deadline for chapters to apply is November 1, 2018.

This is not a program filled with lectures about how to run a better meeting, how to recruit more men, or how to manage your time. It's about brothers getting engaged and becoming the catalyst that changes their chapter, their campus and their community. It's about becoming a leader, not just in their chapter, but in life.

Any meaningful accomplishment, idea, philanthropic project, or improvement began with one man in a chapter or provisional chapter saying, "I can do this better," and then taking action - not being a bystander. Unfortunately, too many are happy with the way things are and that is why nothing changes. The Burns Institute gives participants the tools and confidence to make the needed changes in their chapter or provisional chapter and leave a legacy for others to emulate.
