About the Annual Meeting

The 2019 Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Annual Meeting (#AFAAM) will take place in Anaheim, CA from Wednesday December 4 - Saturday, December 7 at the Hilton Anaheim. To plan ahead, rooms are $205/night (plus tax) for either Double Queen or King rooms. We encourage attendees to become Hilton Honors members because they have some good perks!

AFA Annual Meeting Call for Programs 

The Educational Programs Committee is excited to open the Call for Programs for the 2019 Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is a fantastic opportunity to develop your Core Competencies and learn from each other about how to advance our profession.

In order to make the experience meaningful, it takes members who are willing to share their expertise. We are looking for programs which seek to enhance learning, dialogue and provide practical knowledge. After reviewing the Core Competencies Self-Assessment data, we were able to summarize the core competency focus areas we are hoping to target in the 2019 Annual Meeting educational offerings. All program submissions are due Friday, June 28 at 11:59 PM PDT.


Program Audience

Annual Meeting attendees include fraternity/sorority campus-based and headquarters professionals, graduate students, and fraternal volunteers. Please know that your audience may consist of each of these perspectives. If your presentation specifically targets only one of these audiences, be sure to note in your program submission.


Program Structure

AFA tries to host a variety of educational session formats at the Annual Meeting. Be sure to review session formats here prior to submitting your educational programs proposal.

New this year, we have created Idea Lab programs. Idea Labs will provide presenters:

  • The opportunity to dive into a 90-minute action planning conversation about a topic impacting fraternity/sorority life or higher education,
  • Broaden the knowledge of Annual Meeting attendees by sharing a 15-minute research paper presentation focused on sharing key findings and implication of original research, or
  • Share 15-minute lessons learned when an idea or program doesn’t go exactly as planned in the fabulous flops session.

The research paper and fabulous flop submissions will be combined by topic and then by room to be led by guided conversation. This will allow several presentations creating one educational session.


Program Submission

We look forward to reviewing submissions and creating a robust schedule of educational offerings for the 2019 Annual Meeting. Before you sit down to submit your program, we recommend typing it up first as a text document. In previous years, there have been instances of form timeouts. We would hate for you to lose all your hard work! As a friendly reminder, all program submissions are due Friday, June 28 at 11:59 PM PDT. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of the committee members.

Also, if you are interested in submitting a program proposal for an Advance program to take place prior to the start of the Annual Meeting, on Wednesday, December 4th, please reach out to Stephanie Baldwin, 2019 Educational Programs Chair, to receive the program proposal form.

See you in Anaheim! - The 2019 Educational Programs Committee, Stephanie Baldwin, Chair | Julie Bryant | Maggie Darden | Josh Doak | Mat Greer | Karlee Nuttelman | Natalie Padron | Jessica Ryan
