Annual Meeting Extras

Get the most out of your Annual Meeting experience! In conjunction with your Annual Meeting registration, you may also sign up for special programming. See below for descriptions of each session.

Order of Omega Case Study Competition

Orientation | Monday, November 30  | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Competition | Wednesday, December 2 | 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm ET

The Order of Omega Case Study Competition provides an educational learning experience for graduate students involved in the fraternity/sorority advising profession. The Case Study Competition allows both participants and judges to focus on applying theory, research, and Core Competency knowledge into practice as participants partner with a peer and navigate cases rooted in the current higher education environment.  Participation in the Case Study Competition establish both peer and professional relationships and networks, which foster future development opportunities.

The 2020 Order of Omega Case Study Competition will consist of two tracks:

  • Track One-Crisis Intervention 
  • Track Two-Systemic Issue

The intended goal is that graduate students will have the opportunity to further develop by participating in the track that focuses on the area they do not have as much experience; hence providing participants with a practical opportunity to further develop their skills and knowledge.  

Participants must attend the Orientation on Monday, November 30.  During the Orientation pairings will be assigned, cases will be distributed, and participants will become acclimated with the flow and virtual platform of the program. 

Graduate Training Track

Program Introduction | Monday, December 7  | 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. ET
GTT Part 1 |  Monday, December 7 | 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 pm ET
GTT Part 2 | Wednesday, December 9 | 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET


There is a theoretical side and practical side to the role of every practitioner of higher education and both are valuable. You understand each end of the spectrum and put in the time to understand how they fit into the larger context of our profession. Graduate school may entrench you in the theory of higher education, but a practical approach is needed to build the skills and best practices of a proficient and successful fraternity/sorority professional. Explore the Core Competencies in the field and forge your path to success. 

This interactive and personalized experience will allow participants to develop their own professional development plan, utilizing the AFA Core Competencies. Participants will assess their current skills and through self-exploration, review of personal goals, reflection on passion projects, and collaborative conversations will develop an action-oriented blueprint to guide them through their next steps within our field. We will focus on current issues facing fraternity/ sorority life professionals and provide strategies for practical application. 

GTT is made possible through the generous support of Michelle Guobadia through her endowment with the AFA Foundation. 

Curriculum is developed by Laurel Price.
