Registration Deadline is December 6

Better Man Weekend is for chapter/provisional chapter Presidents (Cardinal) and Sergeants-at-Arms (Stone), with mandatory attendance from two of the following officers: Member Education Director, Recruitment Director, Scholarship Director or Treasurer (the officer who went to Better Man Weekend - Cardinal is ineligible to attend a second time). No substitutions or replacements are permitted, so undergraduates running for those positions in the fall should make sure their schedule will permit them to attend Better Man Weekend in its entirety. Chapters/provisional chapters should schedule elections prior to December 6, so that the new officers are able to register by the deadline to avoid paying registration costs.
