2022 Leadership Convention

For the first time in three years, Pi Lambda Phi chapters from coast to coast gathered to develop leadership skills and celebrate brotherhood in person at #PilamCon22 in Baltimore. More than 150 brothers, staff, volunteers, and alumni attended the event.

Over three days of planned programs, undergrads built bonds and got first hand knowledge of the experiences of other chapters and alumni. 

Alumni Speaker Series

This year the Foundation arranged a new, inspirational speaker series sponsored by Avidus. Five well-known alumni were invited to talk about their Pilam experience, how it influenced their lives, and offer leadership advice. Here are some clips from their interviews and speeches.
