The Fraternity of Alpha Kappa Lambda is proud to continue offering training for incoming chapter presidents and officers this January. Normally, the Clark-Thompson Presidents’ Academy is held in Carmel, Indiana but due to the ongoing circumstances with COVID-19, we are going fully virtual to support our membership. Please note the times and sessions for various officers and return to this page for updated information.

Clark–Thompson Presidents’ Academy & Officers’ Institute

The Fraternity of Alpha Kappa Lambda understands the 2021 Clark – Thompson Presidents’ Academy and Officers’ Institute will be like no other before. We decided to host a virtual event out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our members and the National Headquarters staff. We fully understand travel restrictions would have made it near impossible for some to arrive in Indiana. To be respectful of everyone’s time, we have tried to spread out the various sessions instead of one long session in January. While different from years past, this approach allows us to try new ideas and start earlier on training. This also allows new officers to hit the ground running and interact with staff and their counterparts at other chapters sooner. This page will be updated regularly and any questions can be directed to info@akl.org.
