National Conclave and the Clark – Thompson Presidents’ Academy, Officers’ Institute, & Emerging Leaders Initiative, this is the place to find details and registration information about AKL National Events. Information is also available on affiliated programs endorsed by the National Headquarters


The Fraternity of Alpha Kappa Lambda National Conclave, held every two years, is a four-day event that includes educational training, legislative sessions, and networking opportunities. During legislative sessions, the National Conclave delegation passes amendments and resolutions directing the National Executive Council to develop fraternity programs and policy, makes constitution and bylaw changes, and elects new members to the National Executive Council as needed. All members, friends, and families are encouraged to attend the National Conclave and take part in the festivities.


Alpha Kappa Lambda provides annual training every January for incoming Chapter Presidents. Since 2014, training tracks have been added yearly for additional officers: Treasurer, VP/Risk Manager, and Recruitment Chair. The Clark–Thompson Presidents’ Academy is generously offered through a grant from the AKL Education Foundation. Alpha Kappa Lambda also now offers the Emerging Leaders Initiative, an opportunity for those with a desire to be a future leader to get training while interacting with other chapter members on a national level.
