They were accompanied by advisor Marvin Flatt and house mother Jerrie Conley.
“The chapter chooses to send brothers to the leadership conference every year to improve their leadership abilities, exchange ideas with other chapters, and learn lifelong skills,” Flatt, said.
During their time in Atlanta, they brainstormed new ideas, reviewed what they had done in the past, and put together a strong risk management plan for this next year. It also gave them an opportunity to meet other AGR’s from across the country.
“I not only learned things that will help me in college and the chapter, but gained tools to help me be successful though out my work career,” Dill said.
By attending the national leadership conference, they were able to come back to the chapter better prepared to continue to lead the chapter in the right direction. The group attended the conference not only to represent their chapter, but the University of Tennessee at Martin as well.
“I’m very encouraged with the leadership that they have shown and I know they will be successful in the upcoming year.”
