"I think my favorite part is Grand Chapter - there is just something so special about seeing all the chapters and alumnae associations in their processional, hearing formal reports on our future and voting on legislation." – Katherine Bernardoni, Alpha Gamma Chapter at Florida International University
"I think the International Leadership Forum helps younger sisters see the value of being engaged alumnae. It gave me insight on what this organization means to women, our sisters, who are truly leaders. The love in this sisterhood is not bound by generation." – Margaret Reisdorf, Delta Delta Chapter at Indiana University
"From the very first speaker, I quickly saw that this experience was going to be so special. It's amazing to see so many women in one place working to build the next generation of female leaders." – Melissa Keesing, Beta Rho Chapter at University of Illinois – Chicago
"There is nothing like being surrounded by sisters from all around the world and having one central connection. It makes you feel special and comfortable all while being part of something much greater than yourself." – Tatyana Carnes, Gamma Gamma Chapter at Schreiner University
Formerly known as Convention, the International Leadership Forum (ILF) takes place every other summer. Hundreds of sisters from around the world come together to make memories and celebrate our sorority. In addition to this special time where sisters and supporters of DPhiE come together, the ILF provides attendees with renowned, mission-driven programming focused solely on becoming your best self. Programming is applicable to all generations.
Each ILF gives the opportunity for the attendees to gain valuable experience and make connection with sisters from chapters they may have not met before. ILF’s mission-driven programming provides sisters with experiences in professional and personal development sessions facilitated by professionals and experts in the session specific fields.
