Conclave was held in Nashville this year and was the largest in fraternity history. The Gaylord Opryland Resort was a fantastic experience and Arkansas Alpha was represented by brothers Phillip McKnight, Jonathan Leonard, John Sokol, John Rumbelow, John Stanley, and Bill Raffety. We enjoyed several speakers including General Counsel for Chi Omega Beth Stamos, and the writer of The Dark Power of Fraternities, Caitlin Flanagan. Richard Bennet of the University of Central Missouri was elected the new Grand President. Legislation was passed making the Balanced Man Program the only recognized member development program for SigEp. The Career Fair included companies such as Amazon, Apex Systems, Altria, Comcast, Ernst & Young, and Under Armour. The next Conclave will be August 2-6, 2017 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fl.
