Kappa Alpha Theta and the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) are looking for outstanding campus and chapter leaders to travel to Washington, D.C. to advocate for legislation that is important to the success of fraternity and sorority organizations across the country. This program provides students with the unique opportunity to experience the nation's capital through direct interaction in the legislative process.
The Congressional visits will take place in Washington, D.C April 18-21, 2016. During the visits, students will lobby primarily in support of a bill, the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act (CHIA) H.R. 1718/S. 1002, that would help make fraternity and sorority housing safer and more affordable for students. In addition, students may be advocating for campus safety and freedom of association issues based on the NIC's legislative priorities.
In 2016, we expect to pick only one student from any individual campus. If selected, students will be expected to participate in prep work leading up to training sessions and visits that may include securing letters of support from their university's leadership and passing a student government resolution in support of some of the fraternity and sorority community's legislative agenda items. It is also important that you are aware that you will miss at least 3-4 days of school that week and should be prepared to plan accordingly with professors during that time.
To apply, please fill out the application by 5 pm ET on Friday, January 22.
If you have questions about the legislative agenda, the application process, or the Congressional visits, please contact Laurie Connor, director of government relations, at DirGovRelations@kappaalphatheta.org.
The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete, and once submitted, you will be eligible to enter a drawing for a $250 Amazon gift card.
The survey closes on Jan. 29, 2016.
