Officer Academy

Registration is open for the 2023 Officer Academy: Live Sessions! For those of you who don’t know Officer Academy is Alpha Xi Delta’s signature virtual officer training for newly elected officers. The first part of Officer Academy is a 30-minute recorded program reviewing the fundamentals of each team and can be found in the Officer Academy folder in the Resource Center on Exclusively Xi. Officers are expected to review the recorded program for their team prior to participating in the Live Session.

This year every elected chapter officer has been invited to participate in Officer Academy. On February 5th, Fraternity Headquarters will offer three, 2-hour, live sessions for the officers to participate in. Calls will take place at 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Each session will start with our keynote speaker: Dr. Erika Michalski. In her "Neuroscience of Satisfaction" keynote, Dr. Michalski shares with audiences what Mick Jagger and Keith Richards didn’t realize about satisfaction. Turns out you CAN get it … if you know how. Engagement is often driven by finding satisfaction in the process, so this session marries research from the fields of neuroscience and positive psychology as it invites audience members to consider how they are cultivating their own senses of satisfaction. Anchored in practical application and balanced with humor (and flecks of Erika's favorite accessory, glitter), this high energy session will leave Sisters with a fresh perspective about satisfaction - both as it applies to their own life and as it applies to Alpha Xi Delta.

The second half of our program will allow for two 30-minute breakout sessions covering a variety of topics for each Team and officer. Participants will be able to choose to attend the breakout session that is best suited to them! The full list of topics and breakout sessions will be available in January.

Each call will be identical, and each officer should only register for ONE call. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to register for the time that you would like as soon as possible. Registration is open on Exclusively Xi and will close on January 20th.

We can’t wait to gather with Sisters from all across the country during the Live Sessions! Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions.
