Frequently Asked Questions

General

The General Assembly and Stead Leadership Seminar is a three-day gathering of Collegiate and Alumni Brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha. The General Assembly is the legislative body of Lambda Chi Alpha that deliberates and votes on proposals to change laws and that elects members of the Grand High Zeta. Our laws require that 75% of the voting power at any General Assembly must be held by our Undergraduate Members.

The Stead Leadership Seminar is an educational experience designed to help our Members grow and develop, both personally and professionally. The focus of the Stead Leadership Seminar this year will be training High Taus or High Gammas on ChapterSpot, which will launch to the Global Zeta this summer. The designated attendee will learn about the program, be provided with tools to facilitate and implement the system, and the skills within the Essentials of Finance track in Stead Leadership College, at their local Zeta. They will also be able to share the best practices and ideas with other attendees.

All Chapter and Associate Chapter Members are invited to attend this summer. It is strongly recommended that the High Alpha serve as the Official Delegate to the General Assembly and that the High Tau or Gamma attend as the Stead Leadership Seminar participant. They must be able to attend the conference in its entirety and be willing to learn and grow as a leader.

Scottsdale, AZ is in the Mountain Standard Time Zone (MST). It should be noted that Scottsdale, like most of Arizona, does not recognize Daylights Savings Time. For example, 12:00 pm MST is 3:00 pm EDT, 2:00 pm CDT, 1:00 pm MDT and 12:00 pm PDT.

Official Delegates will attend the General Assembly as part of an immersive learning to participate in the legislative process and walk away with an understanding of corporate governance. Stead Leadership Seminar participants will experience small group programming that allows them to meet, interact and learn from other Brothers. All participants will participate in large group programming and will attend all meals and an exemplification of our Initiation Ritual.

The conference features various presentations from speakers from the Grand High Zeta, the Office of Administration, Lambda Chi Alpha’s premiere partners, and the corporate world. Stead participants will take the information presented and spend time diving deeper in the learning process by participating in discussions and activities in small group sessions with Brothers and volunteers from all over North America.

If for some reason you need to cancel your attendance, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing events@lambdachi.org. If you cancel after June 14, 2024, there will be a $200 cancellation fee. The Fraternity will not be responsible for your cancelled airfare. No changes can be made after July 12, 2024.
