Principled Business Leadership Institute


Alpha Kappa Psi is elevating the learning experience for our members in the areas of leadership and business practices. Held in 6 different cities across the country, the 2015 Principled Business Leadership Institute offers individuals a structured program focusing on professional skill building at the individual level, while allowing for the opportunity to network with other members and business professionals. Attendees will participate in close-knit group conversation throughout the event as well as a curriculum grounded in the leadership framework of Kouzes and Posner's The Leadership Challenge and The Student Leadership Challenge, and the Fraternity’s Core Values and Guiding Principles.

AKPsi has a block of rooms reserved for its members and guests. However, room availability is only guaranteed through the reservation cut-off date listed for each specific hotel. After the cut-off date, the hotel will continue to accept reservations at the special rate provided there are remaining guest rooms in our room block. Once the block is full, whether it is before or after the cut-off date, regular hotel rates will be in effect.

Room types (especially those that sleep four to a room) are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Attendees must provide photo ID on-site at each hotel in order to check-in and receive keys to their rooms. Photo ID must match name on room reservation or access to the hotel may be denied.

Attendees are responsible for contacting the hotel directly to arrange accommodations. All reservation requests will require a deposit.

Participants are expected to comply with the Alpha Kappa Psi Risk Management Policies, state and local laws as well as guest policies of the hotel.
