James E. Greer, Jr. Presidents’ Leadership Academy and Emerging Leaders Institute
Chapter and Prospective Chapter Presidents are the driving force behind the potential success of a student group. The 2023 James E. Greer, Jr. Presidents’ Leadership Academy (PLA) helps those leaders who choose to serve Zeta Beta Tau to come together in an intensive leadership development experience that challenges brothers to create positive change in their chapters and communities by equipping them with the necessary tools and skills.
The Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) is the first experience with the greater ZBT Brotherhood for most of the participants. It’s an honor to help these brothers in their first or second years in the Fraternity learn about the broader impact they can make. ELI is hosted concurrently with PLA each January in Charlotte, N.C. Congratulations to those brothers who participated in this year’s program!
