Drive in
Omicron Delta Kappa Networking Opportunity

Omicron Delta Kappa (O∆K) is a 100-year-old national leadership honor society that recognizes not only academic achievement but also campus. O∆K is committed to developing campus leaders who will become tomorrow’s community leaders.

National leaders of O∆K have expressed a desire to partner with Phi Eta Sigma and connect members of our respective honor societies at mutual institutions by inviting FHS members to participate in select Omicron Delta Kappa events. O∆K wishes to pilot this shared programming opportunity with a workshop to be held at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, on Saturday, February 11, 2017.

Omicron Delta Kappa (O∆K) hosts regionally located drive-in workshops during the spring semester. The curriculum is designed to provide participants with a high impact, low-cost opportunity to network with O∆K members, hear about best practices at other circles (chapters), as well as engage in personalized and organizational leadership development.

Both students and faculty officers benefit from the program. Plus, participants can—quite literally—“drive in” and drive out in the same day.

The theme for the 2017 Drive-In Workshops is Leadership - Mind and Body, recognizing the O∆K 2016 convention resolution that encourages programming tofocus on holistic health.  Keynote speakers and workshops will consider ways to model healthy leadership.

There are drive-in workshops hosted by Emory University and Florida Southern College in February. Phi Eta Sigma chapter members at Emory and Florida Southern have been invited to participate in the workshop, and O∆K is also extending the invitation to Phi Eta Sigma chapters in Region X (Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee) that would likely be close enough to attend.
