Resources

Officer Webinars

Mortar Board is dedicated to providing its officers with the training they require to excel in running their collegiate chapters. We will offer seven hour-long trainings for officers and committee members in fall 2019. The webinars will be held the first week of September and the first week of October.

Chapters not represented by an official delegate at the Mortar Board National Conference are required to have an officer or chairperson attend each type of training. Even if the chapter was represented at conference, Mortar Board still encourages chapter officers to attend trainings that apply to them. Advisors are welcome at any or all of these webinars.
