Lee Kearney Venerable Dean Summit
Acacia's newest premier educational event is the Lee Kearney Venerable Dean Summit. This new program provides a focused weekend of leadership and operational training for Acacia's top chapter leaders - our Venerable Deans (Chapter Presidents). Educational sessions cover foundational principles of leadership, risk management and crisis management, fraternity finances and budgeting, reporting and administrative responsibilities, alumni relations, and productivity tips and tools.
The Venerable Dean Summit takes place in January immediately after most chapters and colonies have completed officer elections, providing ideal timing to form constructive relationships among chapter leaders and International officers at the beginning of each Venerable Dean's term.
With its inaugural session in 2014, the Venerable Dean Summit was conceived by international Acacia leaders as a means to bridge the year-long gap between Conclaves and Acacia Leadership Academies, and is supported by Acacia Fraternity Foundation donors led by the event's namesake, Leonard W. Kearney, Oregon State ’59. Beginning in 2018, the event is being expanded to include Recruitment Chairmen to continue our officer development and further our growth as an organization. We expect to be adding more officer positions in the future as our programming and resources develop.
