General notes: We're trying to make the meetings a lot more interesting and dynamic than in years past. We've already booked several groups to come in so that it's not just us droning on for hours! We've got some pretty interesting stuff lined up, and you won't want to miss it.

Thursday, August 8th: Everybody checks in sometime in the morning, we start our meetings around noon. After we get through some business we'll be heading over to Dave and Busters across the street for the evening. Expect plenty of food and fun, share a drink and catch up with Brothers you haven't seen in ages or meet some new faces.

Friday, August 9th: Our meetings on Friday should be very interesting, we'll be having guests from Phired Up! come in to present to us for most of the day on a number of topics which should be extremely informative and useful for everyone to take back home with them. Once we wrap meetings up we will have a little bit of down time and then head over as a group to the DC Area.  

Saturday, August 10th: We will wrap up our meetings, including having elections for our next Supreme Council. To conclude the weekend as is tradition, we will have a formal on Saturday evening. Please note that there will be a cost associated with dinner, and dates are welcome.

Some loose ends that we are finalizing: We also will be having Men's Warehouse as a guest speaker. They will be presenting to us on a couple topics including helping educate our undergrads on how to Dress for Success as well as how to ace your interviews.

EXACT SCHEDULE:  Included in the pdf files.  NOTE that there are two versions.  One is for actives and alumni, and one is for guests.  Please review the schedule that is applicable to you.
