Catalyst Regional Meetings
Triangle values the ability to connect members from all over the country in an effort to share best practices, socialize, learn, challenge and create. For the 2016-2017 year we will be offering seven Catalysts, previously known as Regional Leadership Conferences.
Catalysts will offer chapter advisors the opportunity to be trained on one to two FHSI risk management modules so that they can then offer the program to their respective chapters. Catalysts will also offer active and new members the opportunity to participate in a series of round tables that will focus on chapter best practices, values discussion, and soft-skill development.
Who Should Attend
Active and new members who are looking to take an active role in making their chapter or colony better and stronger.
Active and new members who are looking to connect with brothers from their regional area.
Active and new members who are interested in idea sharing with chapters and colonies that may be similar or different from their own.
Chapter advisors or advisory board members who will be trained on one to two Fraternal Health & Safety Modules that they can facilitate for their respective chapters.

How Can My Chapter Host?
Chapters or colonies who are interested in hosting a Catalyst at their campus will need to complete the Catalyst Host Application.
This map depicts a suggested regional breakdown for Triangle chapters and colonies. The goal is to host one Catalyst Meeting in each region. Any chapter or colony can and should apply and may offer to host a meeting in the fall or spring semester.
